Like It Is: Yes at the Mesa Arts Center is a live album from the English progressive rock band Yes, released on CD and DVD, LP, and Blu-ray on 3 July 2015 in Europe and on 10 July 2015 in North America on Frontiers Records. It is a partial recording of the band's concert on 12 August 2014 at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona as a part of their 2014–15 Heaven & Earth Tour.
Like It Is: Yes at the Mesa Arts Center is a sequel to Like It Is: Yes at the Bristol Hippodrome, which featured the albums Going for the One and The Yes Album performed in their entirety, in track order. Likewise, Yes at the Mesa Arts Center features complete performances of the albums Close to the Edge and Fragile. Two songs ("Believe Again" and "The Game") from the band's most recent studio album Heaven & Earth were performed, but have been excluded so that the complete Like It Is set contains just the four albums.
It is of note that the Close to the Edge album was usually played in reverse order during the tour, but for this release it was changed to the original order. This is the final live recording featuring Chris Squire, who died shortly before its release.
