YEAH! Excellent news. There'll be more original Beach Boys on that stage than in the current touring group, crazy. Hope they put on a good show and utilise Dave and Al to their full potential.

I WILL DEF BE THERE!

Tix are relatively cheap, being from Indiana, I'm so happy! I never know when's the last time I'll ever see BW in concert.

 LOL I was waiting for the snark! When that snark bites...with his teeth, dear...

All kidding aside, it'll be fascinating to see the set list, the presentation, et al. Might be like last year, only different. Intrigue commences forthwith.

I'd love it if this line-up became a permanent one. If the reunion line-up can't stay together (as it very obviously can't) then having Al with Brian's band seems the ideal solution. I do hope this line-up plays Europe, though I would be very surprised if they do more than a tiny number of shows.

Yeah, there we go. The writing's on the wall for there being less likely of another tour with all of the band.  It'll probably be the Brian Wilson band with Al and Dave playing the greatest hits. Still be cool though. Ha Ha Ha! Tickets go on sale for a gig 6 months from now.

I like that "Happy Together Tour"! I'd like to see that!! Flo and Eddie and Chuck Negron doing 3 Mutt Night songs. Is Negron sober these days?

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

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.

$55 for the best seats is very reasonable.

When Al toured with Brian briefly in 2006/7 he got to sing California Saga, so I imagine that may make the set. I suppose it's possible All This Is That might be included, too, since that was the only other Al composition to make the reunion tour setlist, and Brian seemed to really get into that one at times.

I think All This is That was Mike's idea, Mike & Bruce were doing it before the reunion.

Can he be advertised as Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys without legal problems?

As long as he doesn't call the group "The Beach Boys" or include it in the title of the group (like Al did) I think it should be legal. It should be the same as saying "Paul McCartney of the Beatles" but his tours don't actually refer to him as such.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

I wish that Al and Dave would get more songs, perhaps many songs. I wasn't that impressed with Brian himself the couple of times I saw him, and that was years ago.  I'd certainly rather see a band where Al gets some leads as opposed to say, Darian or Jeff (and Brian seems to be taking fewer even in his own band, giving more to those other guys). I'd like to hear Al take a crack at "Sail On, Sailor" for instance.  Though I doubt this band will play that many gigs and I don't live in Ohio.

Great to think of those 3 together. But I also hope that this does not preclude or interfere with any other reunion pottential, that is, album or shows, and frankly I think that it does not interfere.

Seeing as your comments are based on seeing Brian twice several years ago, you won't be at all surprised when I say that said comments are worthless. Since then he's upped his game significantly.

Oh, absolutely -- Mike's been doing that in his longer sets for *years*. Just thinking maybe it might be one they've been reminded of having done it live recently. But chances are that if Al does any of his own songs at all, it'll just be California.

I'm betting on "And Then I Kissed Her" and maybe some of the Pet Sounds tracks.  With David on board, I'd say "Pet Sounds" itself is a cert!

Very happy man here...

Oh, I was only talking about songs Al *wrote* -- I've absolutely no doubt he'll sing Rhonda, Then I Kissed Her and a few others. And yes, it would be ridiculous for them *not* to include Pet Sounds.
