I can contain myself no longer!!! So excited for this gig, The Beach Boys play the Lokerse festival in Belgium on 7th August!

Main act of the night (set time 21.30 - 23.45) and followed by the Austrailian Pink Floyd (!?!).

Tickets at €35. Anyone else going? You'll see me at the front!  Grin

PS on the site-map TOOG means Bar  Cheesy

That's quite good news, as if they're doing two and a quarter hours starting at 21:30 for a festival, that means I'm less worried about the length of the Italian shows (which start at 21:00 so I thought they might be short).

Yeah as a festival gig I was worried that this might be a shorter set but it's clearly not.

I'm sure all the European dates will be proper length gigs, there's no reason we should get short-changed!

The Australian Pink Floyd (which is a cover band, BTW) starts at 23:45, so there's no way that The Beach Boys are actually going to play for 2:15 hours. More like an hour and a half, I'd say.

I'm going, BTW. Very much looking forward to it. Smiley

The change over time at a festival like this won't be more than 30 mins so that's at least a 1hr 45 minute set, which I'm more than happy with.

Austrailian Pink Floyd are more than just a cover band though, they're probably the most famous cover band in the world. Their shows are pretty spectacular. It's gonna be a weird way to come off a BB high!  Cheesy

I don't think they're more famous than The Bootleg Beatles.

Well maybe. Maybe not. Who knows. I haven't done the sums.

Sad thing though is that any time that they have to cut from their regular set, especially at a festival, will probably be at the expense of the "rarities".

To be honest, I don't care if they leave out a few rarities for this show - I'm going to enjoy every moment of it regardless.

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.

Hey Guy, I missed you!

(sorry, we waren wat later!)

There were some girls on stage during Barbara Ann. I guess relatives from Bruce. The one in the middle with the Mickey Mouse sweater had to be dragged on stage. Pretty cute!




Great show, was surprised by Mike's heavy bass singing. Setlist could have been a lot different, in my opinion. It's not like the crowd went wild upon hearing Hawaii or Don't Back Down, or even Kokomo. Might as well play something of Sunflower or another Pet Sounds-cut. Or Disney Girls, Bruce had almost nothing to do besides making a fool of himself. It's fun to watch him, I have to give him that.

Wow, they really owned the place yesterday. The crowd was relatively young (at least in the front, where I was standing) and very into it. Only downsides for me were the very safe greatest hits setlist (Is it really too much to ask to include at least one or two unexpected "rarities" for the fans who actually do know more than just the hits? OK, there were a couple of album cuts, but with songs like Catch A Wave and You're So Good To Me you're still playing pretty safe. Would have LOVED to hear something like All This Is That or This Whole World) and the fact that Brian looked very bored and tired, he obviously couldn't wait to get the hell out of there. Everyone else seemed to have a blast, though.

(hi Bill / Jop!)

I thought it was a fantastic show. I knew beforehand this would be an ultra short show. Also, this was my second ( and last ) show of the show. In Barcelona I probably was hoping too much for the concert being the best ever, so ended up being slightly disappointed because of that. This time, also closer to home, it was natural to be relaxed and enjoy the show and take it all in. Only 1 hr 40 min, but what a great show. I respectfully disagree with shelter about Brian looking tired. He did look pale and was kinda inactive during the encore, but he was singing good, playing piano everywhere and making gestures (especially when a camera was around). Lots of Brian lead vocals after the car songs.

It seems that sometimes in these reviews that Brian's mood fits that of the poster.

Perhaps. I really thought he wasn't a shadow of how he was at the four solo concerts that I saw in the last few years.

When he is the Frontman he has to be more into it. With Mike having those duties, Brian can just lay back and play until he's called on to take a lead.

Great to hear !
But I'm sorry for you that they didn't do some rarities. I don't think "All this is that" wold work very well for this setting but "Marcella" or "This whole world" might've done pretty good
