I wonder what they're taking out for those two - and I wonder who sings Good Timin' (would be way cool if it was Brian!)

Just checked the Bloo and apparently I guessed right - looks like Brian sang it!


Holy crap!

Good. There were too many introductory songs for the second set. Pet Sounds, ASM, Prayer -- all of them work perfectly well on their own, but having them as a sequence is like reading three first chapters in a row.

What needs to happen is that Prayer -> H&V should be moved deeper into the second set, perhaps after the PS material.

Earlier in the tour that's exactly where H&V was placed - it worked really well there.

Couldn't agree more. Thought the second set started very lagging last night for this very reason. Too much sitting in the audience to start out the set.

I guess I see that. The second set doesn't open with a bang, but more of a slow burn. Still, since I love those songs at the beginning of set 2 so much, I didn't mind at all.

I gotta say, I'm completely gobsmacked that at this point they're introducing a new song or two like every third show. It shows that they're not phoning it in, cause this means they're having to rehearse pretty much every day in order to keep learning new stuff. At this point we've had, what, maybe 60 songs over the span of this tour? Unbelievable.

Amazing show, Brian sounded perfect and no autotune at all!

Bruce sang Disney Girls and got a welcome birthday reception from the crowd.

Come Go With Me was played for I believe the first time on the tour and Al was killing it (in a good way).

David Marks got his moment playing Pet Sounds solo with just the backing band to kick off the second half.

Brian nailed his leads tonight.  He was even hitting some high notes!!!

The tributes for Dennis and Carl were very well done, better than I expected.

My only complaint, I got there a little bit late.  What songs did they play before Surfin' Safari?

Just a note - at the Pittsburgh show (5/11), Mike and Al were discussing how Pittsburgh was the birthplace of Doo Wop. Al began singing the beginning of Come Go With Me, and the band jumped right in - playing for about 30 seconds. I have no idea if they had already rehearsed it, but those 30 seconds sure sounded pretty solid. Maybe they've had it in their hip pocket for awhile.

Great show. Unfortunately I ended the night getting home at midnight to find that I was locked out of my apartment and waiting 2 hours for a locksmith. My brain is already asleep and I can't remember a lot of the details just now. I just know that I had a great time. The PNC Center, though...We were in "parking lot 9" and had to walk about 1/2 mile to the venue. We were then told to go to the far left to get to our section, only to find that it was stage right. We missed the first several songs, and so did a lot of other people because it took so long to get to our seats and the band starts right on time!

Anyway, a couple of impressions:
--They have incredible energy
--Brian complained about the beach balls and asked everyone to stop tossing them because it made it hard to see. The audience jokingly booed, thinking Brian was joking, I guess. Mike just said, "I don't know what to say about that!" Then he told everyone to stop playing with their balls.  I don't get Brian's thing with beach balls.
--The videos and photos they use on the screen are very effective. Brian in the studio (video), Dennis/Carl tributes (with video), the Boys' high school yearbook photos... My 75-year-old father got a kick out of the photos of old cars.
--Brian looked and sounded good. He was off-key a couple of times, but he hit some really high notes, particularly during IJWMFTT.
--Speaking of high notes...Bruce. You have no right to have that range at your age! Al sounded great too.
--I loved how they divided the leads. David sang one and Al sang a few, and Bruce. Everyone was given a chance to shine.
--If I heard correctly, there was one moment after Al's first lead where Brian said, "The great Alan Jardine!" and Al turned to Brian and said "No one here is greater than you," or something like that.
--Every one of them (except Brian) was grinning ear to ear at some point during the show. It was great to see.
--The Pet Sounds set got a huge, huge reception. The applause went on and on. They just stood there proudly and waited for it to quiet down.

I was a little pissed off that the beach balls kept going after Brian asked everyone to stop.  I think they are annoying and one came very close to hitting me in the face at one point.  I almost considered grabbing it and deflating it.  But I was enjoying the show, I didn't let the beach balls ruin it, but they were definitely distracting.

They played Good Timin'! or so I think. I heard it all the way from the parking lot, so maybe I was wrong. I started running and running and running. I also missed This Whole World and everything before Good Timin'.

They did play Good Timin'!  Brian sang Carl's parts, sounded excellent.  Smiley

And PNC really needs a better parking system.  If the parking were more organized, my dad and I would have gotten to the stage in time to see the show start.  We got there much earlier than you did but we still missed a few songs.  But I suppose the fact that they played almost (or over) three hours should make up for it.  It's still one of the greatest concerts I've ever been to.

The traffic off the parkway getting in was horrible, too. If all went according to plan, we would've gotten there at 7, but I don't think I got into the venue until it was almost 8.

The understatement of the century!  Leaving the venue was bad enough.  Brand "appearing" merchandise was being sold to the concert goers, unchecked by any in authority.  Guys with armloads of bargain t-shirts approached cars offering a deal.

Then, traffic was vexiciously re-routed to force concertgoers, unfamiliar with the local roads, on and off the Garden State Parkway, in what appeared to me to be a means of collecting additional tolls.  There was no obvious construction going on, and no apparent safety reason.

I've been to a couple of shows at the PNC (one was Brian), and I don't remember this much disorganization before. I think part of it was the huge crowd. But the PNC should have a system for handling it, you're right. There were barely even any signs to tell you where to go. Amazing, I didn't even hear anyone complaining. Getting out of the parking lot was like herding cattle, and I didn't hear any beeping horns or general temper-flaring.

Seriously, those beach balls would get on my nerves, too.


Hope "Prayer" will be back in the set soon. I'd love to hear it in Germany.

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.

Great show last night; Brian, and everyone, in strong voice. Best I've ever heard Brian, loud, clear and crisp. Pretty funny with the Beach Balls thing too. Al, as always, strong. My wife said, he sounds like he's still in his teens....so clear and strong on his vocals. Same with Bruce; great version of Disney Girls. And Mike too. Carl and Dennis tributes were really cool.......wonderful song selection, including Good Timin lead by Brian and Al's Come Go With Me, which he of course rules! I saw them in AC  a few weeks ago and they were great there too, this was my first time seeing them in this venue since Carl's last show in August of 97, right here. If this is the last time I see them perform, I'm very happy......this was a show to remember, one for the ages. Thanks guys!

Hope someone took some videos of these two songs, i somehow strongly doubt they'll stay in the setlist.
