Very much so. Under the pretext of going to see the Mike & Bruce hits show, I would, however, direct my full attention to:

As would Mr M E Love, I'm sure!

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he asks them to be cheerleaders during an 3min opus intro of, "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen"

OK-The Beach Boys aren't even headlining and are below JLS. Also, looking at the Barclaycard website, tickets are £35 for standing.

Bruce mentioned on the BBB site that they had been offered a gig in July as well as the one at Henley so I am assuming this is it.

£35 is reasonable for that sort of event. I'll get a ticket tomorrow.

I agree that the price is reasonable. I've never listened to either JLS or The Saturdays but they have had stacks of hits so it is a pretty good and varied line up.

You're right-£35 is pretty good although I'm not sure if that is just for Barclaycard holders.

Either way, as much as I'd like to see to see M&B again, I'll wait for another indoor show like The Apollo gig a few years back.

Definitely hope it isn't just for Barclaycard holders -- that would be pretty off if it was. It'll still be cheaper than a Henley ticket would be, though.
I'd much, much rather see Mike & Bruce in a theatre than doing a hits set to a festival crowd, but given that they don't play the UK that often (two proper tours and a handful of short hops like this in the last twelve years) and their age, it might end up being the last chance. I'll take what I can get.

I was thinking that when I typed my reply.
We all know that Mike, at least, will keep playing until he drops but I hate the thought of their last UK performance being a GH supporting JLS. Hopefully they will do a couple of theatre shows next year. I guess a flat (probably nice big) fee from Barclays is better than hoping on ticket sales

As I understand it they always take a flat fee (though they may take a percentage on top).
And in some ways I'd have liked Wembley last year to have been the last show by any Beach Boys line-up, as well as the last ever real Beach Boys show. But since they're playing the set anyway, I'll gladly go and see it.
(I don't even know who any of the other people on the bill are, except Paul Young. JLS probably can't be worse than when I saw Mike & Bruce support Status Quo in 2001 -- and Mike and Bruce will be far, far better.)

Once again a picture of the Beach Boys tour from last year is being used.

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.

Was hoping for another gig, Henley's just too expensive. And exactly 2 years since the Epsom gig Grin I'm in, looking at some 2013 setlists and even the more barebones sets have some interesting things going on.

Well, the Barclaycard site has the, ahem, 'proper' Beach Boys line up. I think that was just the NME not knowing the difference and going for a C50 photo.

Andrew-I completely agree. The Beach Boys finishing last year at Wembley would have been sublime but we all know that it wasn't going to end like that. In some ways, I'm glad M&B are still going doing the GH. The gig is pitched as a 'Family Day' so there are acts mostly tailored for kids/teens and I suppose they thought that they need an act for the parents. Unfortunately, I think being that most of the parents will be in their early 20s, the chances of one of them shouting out for Meant For You are quite slim!

It'll be an awesome gig anyway and as you said, catch them while you can!

I can't help but chuckle at seeing the Beach Boys given equal billing with The Gruffalo. I initially thought that was a joke at Mike and Bruce's expense, but I now realise its not! I do enjoy seeing the Gruffalo smirking over Bruce's shoulder though - almost as though he can't believe it either.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Has anyone been to see any Hyde Park shows in the past?

I've heard from a friend that the sound is terrible as they have been forced to turn it down due to complaints from local residents. And that obviously you could be a mile from the stage.

I've heard nothing good about them - last year there was a big hullabaloo over Blur's set being incredibly quiet and the sound being cut as Bruce Springsteen was jamming with Macca or something. It's a bloody ridiculous place to stage an arena show, anyway.
