VIDEO: Yes premiere Owner Of A Lonely Heart from expanded live DVD

Yes are premiering a performance of their 1983 hit, “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”, from the forthcoming expanded Special Edition version of “Songs From Tsongas - The 35th Anniversary Concert.”

Due September 23 and originally issued in 2005, the updated project adds 70 minutes of material from a show in Lugano, Switzerland on the same tour.

Available on 2DVD, Blu-ray, 3CD and digital formats, the Special Edition of “Songs From Tsongas” contains two different concerts from Yes’ 35th Anniversary Tour in 2004, the last to feature the classic line-up of Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White.

In addition to the originally 2005 release, this DVD is packed with an additional 70 minutes of never-before-released highlights from Lugano.

Disc One of the Special Edition DVD contains the whole concert from the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, previously spread across two discs. This epic show features tracks from across the band’s career including an extensive acoustic section and some tracks that have rarely been performed live.

Disc Two features a very different concert on the same tour filmed at Estival in Lugano, Switzerland. This outdoor show has a stripped down stage and full on rock versions of the acoustic tracks from Tsongas.

As a Bonus Feature, the DVD includes another track, “Ritual”, also filmed at the Tsongas Arena, and an insightful interview with legendary designer and Yes collaborator Roger Dean who created the brand new stage set for the shows.

The current version of Yes – with singer Jon Davison – is playing shows on a US tour In support of their newly-released album, “Heaven & Earth.”
