Cool! Well, I'll be reporting back at some point -- if not Friday, then on Saturday.

Hoping for a great show.

But Pet Sounds was part of the plan?

Yes. Dave didn't make the first batch of VIP pix because he was working with the band onstage.

I can see that.  Great musician, but he really runs a tight ship up there.  He definitely takes the job very seriously.

I'd love one or two instrumental tracks to show off David's guitar playing. I'd love to hear "Surf jam" for example.

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.

I remember thinking they might do something like this, especially since I figured they'd be doing long shows and would want a longer break.

Hopefully they are still doing "Add Some Music" as well to open the second set with the full BB band.

Sad bits -- no This Whole World, Marcella, Darlin or Disney Girls.

However, Dave on Pet Sounds! And Brian gave Dave a part on Add Some Music, too. Dave sang Getcha Back, Mike took back Hawaii. A very Dave-featured show, which was cool.

Brian was a bit space cadet-like, but knocked several of his leads out of the park. Sail on Sailor was awesome. And Do You Wanna Dance returned. No Walusko.

Anyway, much more to tell but I only have an iPad at present and typing on it is unpleasant. I will answer any other questions, though.

Ah Pet Sounds is cool, but not worth the tradeoff of the other 4 . I am going tomorrow night in Saratoga and was really looking forward to hearing Darlin. I hope it's back in tomorrow night.

The mandatory Shady question, how was the attendance?

According to someone who would know.

Seriously, there was a Beach Boys Love You condom?!  Amazing.

Also, no It's OK. Seems like they felt the set list was getting a little out of hand, and this was a pretty meat and potatoes crowd, as Carl would say. (Though they did love Brian.)

Looked like a sellout crowd to me. Pretty close at least. They might have had problems selling VIP ackages -- lots of radio contest winners sitting around me in the front rows.

Isn't It Time was rather a dud, I hate to say. Brian is indeed doubled by Jeff, but then a couple of other people have come in too. The added instruments in the chorus were a little too randomly arranged for my tastes.

Interesting point -- Brian missed beginnings to lines a few places (as he does), but the one who made the biggest mistakes was Mike, who didn't sing opening lines in California and notably messed up lyrics in a couple of other tunes. Foskett was making fun of him.

Unexpected surprise -- Why Do Fools Fall in Love was magical. A transcendent experience. With Totten and Foskett singing a unison lead.

Great report, Wirestone.

It's interesting how they still haven't managed a definite live version of the new songs. I think this may have to do with the fragmented way they learned them / recorded them.

Could you confirm if Dave played the lead on PS?
