‘Yestival’ Bangs the Last Drum of the Season At McGrath Amphitheatre
Two of classic rock and pop’s biggest acts team up next Tuesday, September 12 for what is being billed as “Yestival”, the final show of the season at Cedar Rapids’ McGrath Amphitheatre.
Todd Rundgren will open and you know him from such songs as “Hello, It’s Me” and “Bang on The Drum All Day”.

That will certainly get the crowd hopping prior to Yes taking the stage. The performers of “I’ve Seen All Good People”, “Roundabout” and more will headline.
They’ve undergone various lineup changes, and in fact have split into two versions of the group, but recently made the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. There’s a setlist of a recent show on this tour below.
There is one, perhaps two notable songs missing from that list we all hope they play here. Based on information from the band’s website, it indicates they will only feature music up to 1980, with a “few surprises thrown in”. But if you’re a fan of “Going for the One”, “Yours is No Disgrace”, “Time and a Word” or others, you’ll still be left with an abundance of classic tunes.
The concert, again, is Tuesday, September 12, beginning at 7 p.m. with tickets ranging in price from $49.50-$85. Find out more at the event listing on McGrath Amphitheatre’s website.
