In the Present – Live from Lyon is a 2 CD & 1 DVD album by Yes, released on 29 November 2011 in North America and 2 December 2011 in Europe.


In the Present – Live from Lyon is the recording of the Yes show on 1 December 2009 at the Bourse du Travail, Lyon, France as a part of their In the Present Tour which they undertook before the release of their new studio album Fly from Here (2011) featuring new comer Benoît David on lead vocals.

It is the first live album featuring lead vocalist Benoît David (from Mystery) and thus the first live album without ex-member Jon Anderson whom David replaced. It is also the only release with Oliver Wakeman as a Yes band member.
