Jon Anderson performed with Yes for the first time since 2004, as the band he co-founded was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And that wasn’t the last of the big news from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Anderson was joined by fellow inductees Steve Howe, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman, Alan White and – in a long-discussed move that was also very much in doubt – special guest Geddy Lee.

They opened with “Roundabout” from 1971’s Fragile – the first album to feature Wakeman. He’d eventually serve in five different stints in the band. Lee then exited the stage for Yes’ second and final song, an extended version of “Owner of the Lonely Heart” – the band’s only No. 1, from 1983’s 90125. Wakeman, wearing one of his trademark capes, switched to keytar and joined Rabin in a stroll through the crowd.

Anderson’s fellow former Yes co-founders Bill Bruford, Tony Kaye and the late Chris Squire were also recognized. They memorably toured together with tonight’s onstage performers behind 1991’s Union album, but there remained questions about what role Anderson and Wakeman would play in the ceremony.

Howe said from the beginning that he was unsure if Yes’ many factions could patch things up long enough for an on-stage performance. He continues to tour with Yes, while Wakeman, Anderson and Rabin have been part of a separate, well-received partial reunion – and the latter three arrived separately, in their own van.

Lee and Rush bandmate Alex Lifeson introduced Yes. This year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will debut on HBO at 8PM ET on April 29.

It was a fun show last night. I am not a big fan of YES but really enjoyed their performance. They were having fun, including Rick Wakeman walking into the table seating area with his "guitar" keyboard and cape. Trevor Rabin can play that guitar also. It was cool having Geddy with them. ELO were also top notch and Pearl Jam took the show to a whole other level - they are fantastic!

Thanks for posting that, love Yes and it was interesting to see Geddy perform with them.

Their induction speeches were interesting also, jeez if Wakeman needs some extra cash I think he could do stand-up comedy.

Thanks for posting the Roundabout clip! Wakeman's looking pretty good! Now, if we could get James Cameron to admit that he stole (Avatar) from Roger Dean ...

Very cool. Thanks for posting. I don't think they sounded good at all especially White on the drums as he seemed lost at times but it may be the video's audio.

Love Geddy although he should have been playing a Rickenbacker bass to honor Squire and get that sound.

It sounded great live - better than I was expecting as a matter of fact.

Caught just some of the replay of this show on HBO last night.

I do like some Pearl Jam songs, but sometimes Vedder is just too much for me.

Dude is very intense no doubt, but a little of him goes a long way, just my opinion.

Edit: David Letterman inducting them, he was hilarious !
