Movie Summary

Released:
1986
Rating:
Not Available

Yes: 9012 Live is what happens when you team up a famous 70s rock band and a future Academy Award winning director in Canada for a live concert film documentary. Rock band Yes performs their Yes: 9012 in Edmonton employing unknown and not yet famous director Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Traffic) to shoot this infamous live concert. Opening with some wild 1950s retro footage of two teenagers wanting to hear some real groovy music, Jon Anderson, Tony Kaye, Trevor Rabin, Chris Squire and Alan White start to rock the venue with 'City of Love'. Soderbergh then transitions the scene smoothly from 1950 to 1980 as the band performs their mega-hits 'Changes' and 'Owner of a Lonely Heart' to screaming Canadian fans. Jon Anderson engages the audience sharing a personal story before performing 'Hold On', and Alan White performs an awesome drum solo in the middle of 'Starship Trooper'. Chris Squire rips his bass chords through 'Seen All Good People.' Off-screen, Trevor Rabin talks about the band's recent break up just before the scene cuts to his 'Leave it' guitar solo. Using no visual effects or fancy lighting scenes, the director films the band 'performing naturally' in an attempt, according to Soderbergh, 'to place viewers at home as if they were in the middle of the live show'. Yes: 9012 Live earned Soderbergh a Grammy nomination and provides commentary from the director.
