Not enough Al leads so far...
Great list though!
Not fully detailed yet.  "Help Me Rhonda" is Al for sure.

Well, the leads break down like this:

Brian: 12
Brian and Al: 2
Al: 2
Dave: 2
Jeff: 2
Darian: 1
Group: 2
Instrumental: 1

I don't know if Brian has ever done a show where he sings so few leads. It's actually a promising trend ...

That probably isn't the whole setlist since WIBN, GOK and SJB aren't mentioned. Al on partial lead on two more at least.

It was a casino show, so I'm guessing it's a shorter-than-usual set, whatever the case.

Hope so. Great setlist, but reminiscent of 06/07 when Al didn't get very many leads. Even just a few more would be nice. Al's voice is in great shape, he shouldn't just be in the background so much.

That crazily enthusiastic person posting a dozen one sentence threads about it said it was a 2.5 hour set with intermission. Looking forward to someone HERE telling us about it. Preferably as I eat a leisurely breakfast tomorrow. Slip the review under the door, thanks.

Couple of negative comments on the BW site about the meet and greets also. That's one thing consistent with the C50 then! LOL

I have to assume Brian and/or his "people" were the problem, since I can't see Al, David, or the other guys in that band having any problem taking a couple of minutes to sign things and posing for pictures if people are paying for it.  I can understand that Brian is not comfortable or too tired to do those things, but don't offer it to begin with.

I've know someone personally who is on the fringes of The Beach Boys and has met Brian Wilson many times. She explains, from her experiences, that Brian has two drastically different moods.

1) He is quiet and uncommunicative. You might get him to sign something for you, but don't expect him to look you in the eyes or acknowledge your presence.

2) He is outgoing and energetic. He seems happy and doesn't mind a bit to talk to you.

Sadly, it seems most of the time people experience the first one.

The complaint seems to be that nobody signed anything. The participants were handed a pre-signed photo printed on cheap paper. The M & G was advertised as an autograph event. That's false advertising and those people should get a refund. I also think I would feel ripped off getting so few Al leads. I wonder if this tour has any legs beyond the few dates they've booked, because I don't know why Al would be happy in such a small role.

There's not the full setlist yet, I'm sure he's got plenty to sing (Rhonda, California Saga, WIBN, etc) and judging by his interviews, he seems more than happy to be involved, is full of piss and vinegar, and the fall leg sounds like it'll have more new material.

It's ludicrous to think you're going to get meaningful personal interaction with Brian Wilson for $250 before a gig. Hell, on some days I can imagine he'd have no problem paying you $250 to leave him alone.

Spend it if you can blow the money, love soundchecks, and need a photo of yourself looking fat with your mouth hanging open next to people who want to get it over with because they are thinking about performing.

Just got home - great show, not at all abbreviated. David sang Little Bird and Summertime Blues, they did Ol' Man River into Cottonfields. Reall great show, even if BW was a bit out of it. Too tired for details, but the band didn't disappoint.

If those are the only songs that Al sang then they should give him another 10 leads or so...

IIRC, Al sings the chorus to Breakaway too. And I'd be surprised if he wasn't on WIBN with Jeff, which is how they did it on the C50 tour. He also has some featured bits on TWGMTR.

But all that being said, it was a Brian Wilson show, not an AJ one.

After the anniversary tour, Brian should be the lead on Sail on Sailor. Great setlist, either way.

It`s all about personal preference I guess (and obviously it depends on how accurate that setlist is).

For me, if these guys come to the U.K. I would much rather hear Al singing songs than Jeff, Scott and the others. If Brian doesn`t want to sing all of the songs then I can understand that but they should give a stack to Al. I would prefer to have him singing...well anything than to hear David singing Summertime Blues for example.

Maybe they will add stuff like Don`t Fight the Sea and Honkin` Down the Highway as Al hinted though.

Al did in fact sing lead on WIBN with Jeff and the chorus of Break Away, Tons of harmony too. He also sang half of Sloop John B.

Nice setlist!
David mentioned last year that he'd like to do "Summertime blues". Personally I never liked the Beach Boys' version and especially not the overblown (imo) version that Mike & Bruce do from time to time. But I'd like to know how this band does it. Eddie Cochran's original recording is a timeless classic.

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.

Yes, he did seem a bit disconnected. It was a great show nonetheless. I was really blown away with them doing Ol' Man River. Jeff and Al were bantering about the next song being a water/land medley or something that that. So, I was shocked when they started with OMR. Doing both that and Cottonfields together worked really well. I was also surprised to hear Break Away. I had to laugh at Al. When they came back from intermission, he told us that they were the Beach Boys without the name, the heart & soul of the Beach Boys. Very similar to his comments last week in the article. He then had buzzing problems with an amplifier, then said Mike Love must have been listening. Jeff and David seemed to get a good chuckle from the comments, but Brian sat there stoic. The audience had a good laugh too.

I thought Scott did a great job with Sail On Sailor, as well as Darian with Darlin'. Al was in good voice, but I think he forgot lyrics here and there. I found him glancing to Jeff a few times for help. Dave sang well, and his guitar was finally up in the mix. Again, Nelson was a hoot to watch. The guy plays percussion like he has 4 arms and hands. They had a few false starts, so you knew you were at the opening tour show, but man that band is terrific. Great Show!

Harmonied Be Thy name

Your Steak Well Done,
On Stage As It Is In Studio,
Give Us This Day, Our Shortenin' Bread
And Forgive Us Our Bootlegs,
As We Also Have Forgiven Our Wife And Managers,
And Lead Us Not Into Kokomo,
But Deliver Us From Mike Love.
Amen.  ---hypehat
