I think Brian should tour Pet Sounds again with Al and Dave.  He's already done it with Al and Dave found a great showcase on the 50th tour with the title track.  Also, it makes a more marketable tour concept than anything (provably only second to being called the Beach Boys which is out of the question). And having missed the original two Pet Sounds tours, having been too young to appreciate it then, it's something I would totally want to see and I'm probably not alone as the album's reputation only continues to grow.

I suggested last year that The Beach Boys attempt to either tour "Pet Sounds" or "SMiLE" perhaps in a brief run of smaller venues and the idea was basically shot down due to the fact that the band members are now in their seventies and not their sixties and asking the group to tour an entire album probably would be a big ask. 

The guys were already playing 48 song setlists anyway...just cut some of the deeper tracks that are on the list all ready, and fill em with the rest of the album tracks! It wouldn't be that unrealistic. John Fogerty is doing it this fall and he is 68.

Why should they? Brian and Al already did it. No need. Plus I don't think many people would care about it.

Don't be saying things like that - we need to encourage them to do this!!!

I didn't get to see that tour the first time 'round - I can't even begin to tell you what it would mean to me (and probably, about a couple thousand others at least) to see the creator of Pet Sounds perform the whole thing live with his band. That album means so much to me, means so much to a lot of people.  It defines who I am, as much as a musical statement ever could, it's more than an album to me....and I would jump at the chance to be a part of that happening.

11. Wind Chimes (Brian)
11. Can't Wait Too Long (Al)
13. Rocking Surfer
14, Stoked
15. Carl's Big Chance
16. Johnny Carson (David)
17. Male Ego (Brian)
18. Sunshine - KTSA (Brian)
19. Feel Flows (video footage from 1977)

 Cheesy  Damn straight!  And without "George fell into his french horn" and the Hal and Brian Vegetable routine, I'm not going either.  It's just another, total SMiLE denial show for "fans."

Good point! That frog has skrewed us once again!

How about a PS50 tour in 2016?

If you're really interested - not sure why you would be - I was 10 years old in 2000 - and while I've been heavy into 60s music since I could speak (and before then, too) I didn't really fully embrace Brian/The Beach Boys music until around 2010 or so - which means I missed the 2006 PS concert near my town, as well. In fact, I'd missed ALL Brian's concerts near my area. I had casually liked The BBs music, owned some albums and singles, but didn't start heavily collecting and listening until I understood the copy of Pet Sounds I'd had in my collection for a couple years...and that's why it's important to me.

I got really into the Beach Boys in 1998. I didn't think anything good would happen by that point, but I was wrong! So many great releases and concerts since that day. For your sake, I hope that there is more greatness to come. Won't last forever, its kind of sad.

Enough already with the PS tours. What we need now is a Wild Honey tour. Or Sunflower. Dave could sing the Dennis songs; as for the Bruce songs, maybe Darian could learn how to adjust his mic, and put on a pair of shorts.

Don't forget he needs to start a clap on 3/4 of the set list. When did the whole microphone adjustment joke start? I love it! I noticed it in a lot of the concert footage but it seems to be a long running joke within the past few months.

Great story! I'm often amazed at young generation people who like sth. ancient (esp. when talking about the 60s times) since childhood. And continue liking it despite the modern & severe information technology era nowadays and more so, despite having danger being ridiculed by other students, friends etc. So, you have great musical upbringing & taste, EgoHanger! That's cool!

It's been done. Ok not with the complete Beach Boys but it still would be too much of a repetition imo. Same with Smile

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.

What albums could possibly be performed live besides PS and smile that are commercial enough? I wouldn't mind hearing Al's Postcard from CA being performed live with Brian and David.


Off topic, any idea what's gonna be on the merch table?

Yes it has been done. Just as all but 2 songs had been done for up to 50 years during the C50 and many of those same songs have been released multiple times during that period. Still sells.

I'm not ruling out, health permitting, noises being made in the UK for a PS tour in 2016 by the C50 line-up.

5.   "I'm Waiting for the Day"  - Same as "Don't Talk" (??) (I'm pretty sure these were listed on setlists on Eric Anniversario's page)
6.   "Let's Go Away for Awhile"  - never to my knoledge
7.   "Sloop John B"  - concert staple

1.   "God Only Knows" - concert staple

6.   "Caroline, No" - often from '71 to mid 70s, occasionally thereafter   


The 2 songs I was referring to were the ones off the new album, as in the C50 had songs played live for up to 50 years except IIT and TWGMTR. Maybe poor phrasing on my part.

Fresh off the press:

Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck to Play the Greek Theatre with Al Jardine and David Marks
June 17, 2013

Following the announcement that Jeff Beck is guesting on his upcoming Capitol Records studio album, Brian Wilson co-founder of the Beach Boys has announced that the guitar icon will be joining him at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 20th. Brian’s former band mates Al Jardine & David Marks fresh off last years successful Beach Boys’s 50th Anniversary tour will join Wilson and Beck for an evening of historical collaboration.

“Jeff is one of the most amazing guitarists I’ve ever worked with and his vibe is inspiring, in fact I think we should do an album together!” says Wilson.  “I feel like this is a cool continuation of what we did last year with the exciting addition of Jeff Beck. We’ve got some new tunes we want to try out on a live crowd as well as doing some great music from our catalogues.” 

Wilson, Jardine and Marks will be diving into the Beach Boys rich catalogue and Beck will join them on some of his favorite Beach Boys songs as well as performing a jewel from Brian’s upcoming album. Beck will also be performing a set of is own classics with his stellar band.


Wilson is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever... nine consecutive “gold” albums that featured such classics as "Surfer Girl," “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” "Fun, Fun, Fun," “Help Me Rhonda” and "California Girls"...just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, the Beach Boys.

Known as one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock, Jeff Beck was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”  He has earned wide critical praise and received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance six times and Best Pop Instrumental Performance once.  He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice; as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and as a solo artist (2009).

Jardine was originally the Beach Boys rhythm guitarist and middle-range harmony vocalist and is well known for his lead vocal on the # 1 hit “Help Me Rhonda.”   Continuing with his contributions to the Friends album, Jardine wrote or co-wrote a number of songs for the Beach Boys, varying in style from straight-ahead rockers like "Susie Cincinnati" to Wilsonesque mid-tempo harmony efforts like “Island Girl,” among others.  David Marks was part of the Beach Boys line-up, at age 13, when they signed with Capitol Records in 1962. Marks performed on the band's first four albums, playing rhythm guitar and toured with the group.  He most recently appeared last year on the Beach Boys album and 50th Anniversary tour.

Tickets available at The Greek Theatre box office, online at Ticketmaster.com, at all Ticketmaster outlets or charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000.

All dates, acts and ticket prices subject to change without notice. A service charge is added to each ticket price.

That should be an interesting concert.

I just really hope they add some more dates. A few shows in July, presumably before Brian's album comes out, is kind of weird. I know Brian had done short strings of shows like that in the past, though.

I'm hoping they are planning on booking more dates around the October timeframe and that the L.A. show isn't just a one-off. Perhaps by that time Brian's album will be ready to promote? Who knows.....

If they play a LY song I sure hope it's Airplane. (though any of them would be both awesome and unlikely)


Last time Al toured with Brian there was an interview in which Al was mentioning "Honkin' down the highway" and that they should do it. Never happened iirc. Maybe this time.
I guess that it will be kinda like C50. I'm afraid though that they (Brian, Al, David) expect this to be something like a continued C50 with all the success and fun. Obviously this won't be anything like the Beach Boys tour but tell that the boys...

I dont' know why, but I really want them to do Honkin' Down the Highway too.  I don't know why when I hear Al and Brian I think of that song.

Because Brian helped to write it and Al sings it?

I think Brian should tour Pet Sounds again with Al and Dave.  He's already done it with Al and Dave found a great showcase on the 50th tour with the title track.  Also, it makes a more marketable tour concept than anything (probably only second to being called the Beach Boys which is obviously out of the question). And having missed the original two Pet Sounds tours, having been too young to appreciate it then, it's something I would totally want to see and I'm probably not alone as the album's reputation only continues to grow.


Why should they? Brian and Al already did it. No need. Plus I don't think many people would care about it.

Don't be saying things like that - we need to encourage them to do this!!!

I didn't get to see that tour the first time 'round - I can't even begin to tell you what it would mean to me (and probably, about a couple thousand others at least) to see the creator of Pet Sounds perform the whole thing live with his band. That album means so much to me, means so much to a lot of people.  It defines who I am, as much as a musical statement ever could, it's more than an album to me....and I would jump at the chance to be a part of that happening.



Genuine question, and not being snarky - where were you in 2000, or if you're a Brit, 2002 & 2006 ?

If you're really interested - not sure why you would be - I was 10 years old in 2000 - and while I've been heavy into 60s music since I could speak (and before then, too) I didn't really fully embrace Brian/The Beach Boys music until around 2010 or so - which means I missed the 2006 PS concert near my town, as well. In fact, I'd missed ALL Brian's concerts near my area. I had casually liked The BBs music, owned some albums and singles, but didn't start heavily collecting and listening until I understood the copy of Pet Sounds I'd had in my collection for a couple years...and that's why it's important to me.

Well that's your fault for not being born sooner then, isn't it?
