The crowd was incredible. I stood in front of some guys who were singing along to every single thing; Heroes and Villains, Sail on Sailor, even Kokomo Grin Everyone was so enthusiastic, dancing and singing, and David's guitar playing really made everyone cheer. He's too cool.

It was also neat to hear everyone acknowledging Brian when he was introduced, whenever he sang solo, or when he got up to play bass.

Absolutely enormous. After the Boys were done, most people stayed put for Bon Iver, who played at 5:30. It took me at least 25 minutes to get way over to the side so I could find a spot to sit in the grass...it was very stressful, haha! People really pack together at these shows.

I just saw the photo taken from behind the BOYS and looking way way way way into the audience.

 That is drawing power folks!  I'm so happy for the BOYS.

It really was a bit nightmare-ish. To anyone here who went, if I stepped on you or your stuff, my apologies! LOL

That's a fantastic picture, and so is the one with Brian and those girls. I wish I had seen their bus! Do they tour with three buses? My aunt said she saw a bright green one, an orange one, and another one being escorted into the back of the festival by police cars and she thinks it may have been them.

Based on the Rolling Stone article, we know Brian travels in his own bus, the rest of the band travels in another bus, and presumably they have an entire bus dedicated to equipment, no?

Maybe it's because I come from a hardcore background, but these festival performances seem so much more intimate and energetic than the seated solo shows. Having all of my senses assaulted by the amazing music, the smell of perspiration, people moshing to music, it doesn't repulse me, but makes me feel alive  Rock!

I hope someone took this opportunity to start a wall of death during Catch a Wave! LOL

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

All roads lead to Kokomo. Exhaustive research in time travel has conclusively proven that there is no alternate universe WITHOUT Kokomo. It would've happened regardless.

Thanks for the setlist ! Typical festival-set just like Jazz Fest. I think "Marcella" could've gone over well but who cares after such great reactions.

Looks like some gig!

Is this the largest BB audience in recent years i.e after Live Aid one (Brian's Glastonbury gig was probably more)

It's truly great to see that kind and that size of an audience into the Beach Boys, it's like everything is coming full circle. Then again, with a few tweaks and changes, it's such a testament to the *music itself* and those musicians on stage  that these folks were hanging on every note of songs whose average age was 45+ years old.

In a world where "hit" artists barely last a year before their follow-up radio single drops and flops, that is pretty amazing.

Great stuff. Smiley

I know the BB's played to some extremely large festival audiences in Europe in the late '90's. I think 1998 or '99 they played to 80,000 plus at a couple of shows, one in Germany was estimated at 120,000. Does anyone have an attendance figure for the Bonnaroo set? Their New Orleans Jazz Fest set on this tour was about 30,000 according to Joe Thomas...this one looks much bigger.

There's something like 80k attendees for this year's fest claimed. Looks like a fucking lot of them are out there.
