I found out a few days ago that YES, (the band) was going to be touring again, and would be in Kansas City, a short 3 hour drive from here. I was so excited. They never come to the Midwest, and I have wanted to see this band since I was 14. Hubby gave me the go ahead to purchase 2 tickets for me and my son, another huge fan. I couldn't believe I was FINALLY going to see them. And with the tickets being expensive, the gas prices astronomical, and the fact that I have no car, I couldn't believe my husband agreed to let me go. I was almost in tears (of joy!) I have felt great all day, knowing I have this to look forward to. I have been cooped up almost a year after breaking my ankle, and having my car quit on me. My husband broke his hip in December and was unable to work for several months, so we have been too broke to buy a new car for me. But this made it all worthwhile! I have been a basket case, waiting for my son to come by so I could surprise him with this news. Tonight he came over, and I told him. He was as excited as I was, and was even shaking with excitement. He was in shock, and I was still in a state of disbelief myself. So I popped up the website that shows the seating chart, to show him what good seats I got for us, and found that it was canceled! Canceled? CANCELED??? My heart hit the floor, and we both just sat there and stared at the screen in disbelief. The whole tour was canceled. My poor son. I had just told him, and less than 5 minutes later, it was taken away. And poor me. 36 years of waiting, finally getting that one chance to see them, all crushed. Right away, I wondered why, and felt a sense of dread. These guys are not youngsters. Are they all okay? Turns out that Jon Anderson, the lead singer, had a severe asthma attack last month, and has now been diagnosed with acute respiratory failure. His Dr. ordered him to not work for 6 months, or suffer further complications. This man, at the age of 64, still has the crystal clear voice of an angel. I would NEVER want him to risk his health or his beautiful voice. So, devastated as I am that I can't experience them in concert, I am thankful that Jon is following his doctors orders. I want him well, and healthy! And if they do decide to tour later, I just hope they still have Missouri on the itinerary. Thanks for listening. I just needed to tell someone the story of my burst of extreme happiness that plummeted a day later.
