Here's another glowing review, this time for the concert in Stuttgart:

These pictures come from that article:

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.

Nice pics and a very interesting review. Reading the reports about Berlin and Stuttgart you really have the feeling that no one expected the Beach Boys to be this good. They blew everyone away !

I just wish they'd ditch sodding Come Go With Me. There are songs so much more deserving of being performed. If they want to represent that particular period there are ample good songs to choose from, such as Good Timin'.

I'm not a fan of the Beach Boys' version of that song. I love the original by the Del-Vikings though. But the crowds go crazy for this tune when the BBs play it.

They did have a top 20 hit with Come Go With me. It should be Why Do Fools Fall in Love? that gets the ditch. Keep the cover you had a hit with, you don't need 2 doowop covers but still this is all minor complaining still a great setlist.

Well, Why Do Fools... is in a different league to Come Go With Me but if the audience love it then what can ya do... I'd be happy if they ditched Getcha back as well, and i'd be very pissed off if i'd paid to come and watch one of these shows only to discover they've scrapped the Carl and Dennis tributes. No Dennis track? Shameful.

Why do fools is a musical highlight of these shows. It is beautiful, as those who attended concur.

Come go is a great showcase for Al's voice. It works for me every time.

Nothing wrong with those two.

As I look at the coverage here--and thanks to so many for making this amazing tour so accessible to those who aren't in a position to make it to any of the shows--I'm stunned at the resilience of the Beach Boys. I know they're pros and all that, but g-d what a grind, especially at their age! The length/breadth of the concerts are nothing but praiseworthy--and even more amazing, they seem to be getting better as they go along! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

Too bad they can't/couldn't find a way to take a couple of requests from the audience--not in real time, of course, that would be chaos--but through some poll mechanism on the Internet. Perhaps a few of the "deep cuts" that a number of folks have wanted to hear might make it into the set on occasion.

I rarely, if ever, listen to the studio rendition of Come Go With Me, however, the live version I heard from this tour really impressed me, and I absolutely adored Al's lead vocal.  He sounded powerful singing this song.

I wouldn't call it a highlight but it is a very good performance and gets the crowd going. The only thing I think isn't that good is the doubling of Jeff and Scott. In Berlin it sounded a little shrill and scratchy (to me). Maybe only one voice for the lead would be better

Stuttgart was even better with “Marcella” being in the set and the audience going really wild, though it seemed to me there weren't that many young people there like in Berlin. While waiting outside the arena we heard the Boys doing their sound check and they ran through “Let Him Run Wild” three times. Bruce this time didn't play a wrong note on “Disney Girls” like the day before, instead his voice once didn't nail the right tone. Still a great performance. I was only disappointed by David Marks quite a bit. I don't mind if he wants to improvise on his solos but he played some really weird licks and there were more than just one bum note there and you could really tell by his face expressions that he wasn't happy with them either. I think it was at this concert that Al muffed “Cottonfields”. “God Only Knows” got some great responses by the crowd. During all 3 concerts Brian didn't really seem to be in a great mood, I thought it was hilarious every time the camera guy  came to his side. Brian was nervous, always looked for him and then even encouraged him to take some pics. Brian put on his smile and it went as fast as you can imagine after the cam guy was gone. Al burned his hand during “Add Some Music”, I couldn't make out what was on Brian's piano but it's there every night. At one point Jeff made fun of Brian and I really felt sorry for him because it didn't seem that Brian was too happy about that. Jeff, well he sang and played great but near the end he seemed almost drunk by dancing on stage and laughing while singing. He even skipped the intro to “Barbara Ann” and the whole band got out of rhythm and you just had to see the look of Scott Totten. Al walked around during “Kokomo” with his tambourine and I don't remember  seeing him sing once into a mic. Stuttgart was very enjoyable and we got our Beach Boys program there, which is lovely put together.

I understand the concerts were great, and you had a great time... Although the report seems to stress the odd, the bad and the ugly.

BTW, regarding Jeff, as capable a singer as he is, and such a faithful band member, I think he is pushing himself to his limits. BW solo tours were never this intense, and he's on a schedule like he was 25 years ago... only that these shows are longer and more demanding than those of the late 80s. Also, his role is different now. He has to MC, be nice all the time, he is more active, has to cover BW if needed... I mean, he's 56 or something and he's pulling off these extremely hard parts every night! It's unusual to see a falsettist his age, in rock groups, perform such an extraordinary task every day for two hours. He's a hero.
