An Evening of Yes Music Plus is a live album by the English progressive rock side project Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe (ABWH). Released on 12 October 1993, it was recorded at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California on 9 September 1989 in a concert that was shown live on pay-per-view in the United States.

The album contains material from ABWH's self-titled album, songs from past Yes records and excerpts from keyboardist Rick Wakeman's solo work. Tony Levin, who played bass on the studio album as well as most of the tour, was ill during the concert recorded on this album. He was replaced by bassist Jeff Berlin.

ABWH had lost the legal rights to use the name of their parent group Yes. It was agreed that they could refer to their origins in Yes on tour posters and merchandise. The cover features a painting by Roger Dean titled "Floating Islands".

The album was released in the US by Herald/Caroline Records without the title on the cover.
