Last night’s hour-long SiriusXM event in New York City featured an interview with the band, hosted by David Fricke, and acoustic performances of “Roundabout,” “Leaves of Green,” and “Clap.” As a surprise conclusion, Steve Howe was presented with a birthday cake to commemorate his upcoming 70th birthday this Saturday, April 8.
