I love it! Go Al!

It greatly depends on the venue. I've been right up front for Mike and Bruce anywhere from $25-$75...same goes for Brian Wilson. I had a 2nd row seat directly in front of him for $15 at Montgomery College two years ago. The C50 VIP Package was a steal. I had 2nd row center seats, soundcheck, meet & greet, & merch...for $350. Brian's VIP package is more than that.

Mike and Bruce's entire summer tour probably pays out to about one night for The Eagles.

Does that mean there will not be physical releases of these tracks in the foreseeable future?

No Pier Pressure has plenty of examples. Nearly every track actually...it's just WAY more subtle and more tasteful than on Mike's piece of garbage.

I would guess that he says that "he" has a new album out. I hope...

Heard Little Saint Nick & Frosty The Snowman while out today...tis the season

If they were truly selling the show to new markets, I would buy this line of thinking but frankly...they aren't. On the financial side of things, this is no different than how Mike and Bruce operate. Albeit, these Pet Sounds shows are vastly more expressive, artistic, and frankly...more musical. It's less of a party, and more of a celebration.

Regardless, let's celebrate some of the OTHER musical successes in Brian's career.....

I'm really not interested in seeing this show a third time in 2018, I know I'm in the minority. But Brian was perfection at The Strathmore in 2016 and I'd rather remember that, because he certainly was NOT in Baltimore just a month prior. In the same breath, I'm not interested in seeing Mike and Bruce. I had a fantastic front row seat this summer...had a great interaction with Mike singing his autobiography and chatting with many band members, but Bruce Johnston treated me like sh*t. I'm not putting more money in his pocket (from tickets at least).

On the otherhand, I am VERY excited for Al Jardine's storyteller outing...I REALLY hope this becomes a larger scale run than the current two venues.

Yeah...usually there's a string of Christmas gigs through theatres around the country...and he typically hits the California theatre circuit or the Florida theatre circuit...seems those gigs are being saved for Mid February to Early March.

PLEASE! Get some East Coast dates of this in 2018!!! This is genuinely exciting. A brand new live experience from a Beach Boy...and frankly, the best vocally set Beach Boy these days.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al being fired on: November 27, 2017, 04:25:35 AM
Al was a delight both times I met him. The first on the C50 VIP experience, and the second was after Brian's show at Montgomery College in 2015. He gladly signed my photo so long as I would walk to the bus with him and not stop to allow a crowd to form...which was already happening anyway with the 20 people or so that were waiting.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: How and why did Bruce become an official Beach Boy? on: November 25, 2017, 06:27:22 PM
I don't know where on the timeline he received it, but I know Bruce ridded himself of it upon leaving the band...I've never heard an exact figure quoted.
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Heard Another One on Sirrius XM Deep Tracks... on: November 24, 2017, 04:17:49 PM
Heard "Little Saint Nick" for the first of many times to come this season today...of course!
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: November 22, 2017, 09:41:34 AM
So with my day off, I've taken a little time to listen to this thing on YouTube...needless to say, I won't be spending money on it.

Since there is so much bad to be said, I'll focus on the good...

Getcha Back actually sounds pretty great. I've liked what they do with this live and that's pretty much what this is. The new lyrics are nice and honestly a little more interesting than the original.

Too Cruel isn't a bad tune. This would go over well in the live show.

Cool Head, Warm Heart is a highlight...since nothing has changed to it.

If Mike's name weren't Mike Love, Unleash The Love wouldn't be so bad.

As for the remakes....Warmth of the Sun with Aambha is nice (she did a great job on it with the NSO live). And WILD HONEY! I'd actually like to own this track. I may just download this track beacuse John Cowsill, that's why.

My problem is not with these songs appearing in the touring setlist. BUT I have a serious problem with THE BEACH BOYS serving as the promotional band at a listening party for a new MIKE LOVE record. Solo and side-project tracks have popped up in The Beach Boys' setlist all the way back to the 70's...usually the tunes fit right in. My problem is that an event that is solely to promote MIKE LOVE's release, was led by The Beach Boys. That has never happened before and should never happen....even if Bruce stays home and the rest of the band comes and he calls it Mike Love and Band, that is FINE. But not a "The Beach Boys" event solely for promotion of this album.

I wish I could've heard "Aren't You Glad" in Hagerstown last week, but I don't regret not going. This bullshit would've killed it AGAIN for me.

The Beach Boys played new Mike Love alongside classic hits at the "Unleash The Love" listening party last night. This is not okay.
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 16, 2017, 09:21:06 AM
One more SMiLE tour would be the kicker. Outside of that, I don't see any "album" oriented tours surviving. They just don't have the flow or the hit-power.
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love - Unleash the Love - Due November 17 - w/ 2nd Disc of BB Remakes on: November 14, 2017, 12:08:57 PM
I only see one purpose for this joke of an album, and that's to con little old ladies into buying a "new" Beach Boy record with "old" favorites at the merch booth.

I would be shocked if this gets any promotion anywhere. What mainstream morning, afternoon, or late night show would host this?

Ugh.  Roll Eyes

Just in case you haven't seen it and are interested, our member The Real Barnyard just posted the following in the Pro-Shot-Concert-List thread. Mike & Bruce two days ago, professionally filmed. And they play "Unleash the love" near the end. Maybe more, but I haven't watched it




The last 90 minutes of this video include The Beach Boys performance at the American Airlines Sky Ball XV Gala in Dallas. November 11, 2017.

Amazing sound and performance!

It's a kick ass band, that's about the only nice thing I have to say.

Weak vocals from Mike, "Unleash The Love" is embarrassing, and Bruce looks bad. Did it ever come out as to why he was off the road for awhile? It looks like he's aged ten years since he bitched me out in August.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 03, 2017, 03:17:26 PM
Let the man rest.

I hope he does. I don't know what markets they would have left to do this in unless it was truly just one concert in LA or NYC that could be filmed. I'd be down with that. But he doesn't need anymore stress on the road this year.

Considering Christmas Tours are usually announced during the summer months, I'd be pretty surprised if a 2017 Christmas Tour materializes.  But, if it's on the table for 2018, I'm there. 



On re-reading the email from the agent, it is for November-December of 2018, not 2017. Sorry for my over exuberance.

Thank for clarifying. That's still great news!!! I hope it materializes. However, that leads me to believe there would not be many other performances in 2018, if they are still concerned about which markets Pet Sounds hit. That seems like a silly thing to be concerned with anyway, considering that at least 50% of this show will be new material since Pet Sounds will be dropped and the Christmas album will be added in.

This would have to be announced sometime early next week if they want to have time to sell tickets on these. I don't see it happening, but crazier things certainly have come through.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: If I meet Mike and Bruce is it OK if I'm wearing a BW Pet Sounds shirt? on: October 14, 2017, 08:24:29 PM
I would avoid Bruce at all costs regardless of sex. He's a loose canon and has no problem chewing out hardcore fans for no legitimate reason.

What pray tell, is a "loose canon"?  Is that something like the BBs' post-Holland discography or BW's solo discography?

Forgive my missing "n"...thanks for coming to the rescue to make a meaningless correction on something everyone around here knows damn well to be true. I'm also failing to find the humor in your statement regarding the discography as both the BB's post-Holland as well as BW's solo works have had deserving success as well as deserving flops and everywhere in between.

Male or Female? If Male, it's irrelevant. If Female, wear as little as possible...for Mike, that is. I would avoid Bruce at all costs regardless of sex. He's a loose canon and has no problem chewing out hardcore fans for no legitimate reason.
