Since the other thread got so large I thought I'd make a new one for tonight's show. Very excited to see how things go! I'll provide as many updates as I can.

Speaking of this show...I had the ticket page opened up, selected two front row tickets in Orch A for $97 and the phone rang. Come back 5 minutes later and someone had purchased the tickets and put them back up for sale at $370 each. Unreal...

They just sound checked Pom Pom Play Girl! Mike said it wasn't ready for "Prime Time" yet.

Now they just did Farmer's Daughter with Jeff on vocals!

That's interesting. IIRC it was Jeff's suggestion to use "Farmer's daughters"' melody on Brian's recording of "I got rhythm" on BWRG. Maybe it was his idea now as well to do that song

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.

I'm anxious to see what he gets too, maybe Hawaii or Do You Wanna Dance.

The venue sold so poorly they were offering orchestra seat upgrades for $10, really maybe half full at best.

According to someone who would know.

Mike sounded great.
My favorite songs were Pisces Brothers and Ballad of Ole Besty (Scott on lead).
Cowsill rules on drums but his vocal on Rhonda seems misplaced.
Too much Stamos pimping.
Wendy is apparently tough to play live.
Good concert not worth the 70 clams though.

I really enjoyed myself, I thought it was a great show! And I never thought Bruce was such a laugh riot, that guy is hilarious! It was awesome getting to meet Mike, Bruce, and Dave. Class acts, all of them. And the weather today was perfect.

This is true. It's all covered in the new book.

I have to say though the soundcheck did seem worth it based on the songs they played,  I wonder though if these are the songs they play every time or of they actually do change it up.

It was a lot of fun, pretty well organized. First thing we did was hang out in Club Kokomo, until they were done with their real soundcheck. Once the band was ready, we all went over to the stage and listened to their mini-setlist. Afterwards, we all went back to Club Kokomo, with Mike, Bruce, and Dave. They spent about ten minutes socializing and talking with folks before the photo session began. Once that started, everyone lined up and had their photo taken with the guys.

When it was my turn for my photo, I had no idea what to say, because I was kind of in awe. I thanked them and told them they were my heroes. Then came the Q&A session, and I made sure I was front and center for that. About five questions were asked, mainly by little kids who were there, which was nice. Then Mike and Dave headed off, while Bruce stuck around for another minute to chat with folks, before heading off himself.

So, the meet and greet was pretty brief, but the guys seemed to be in good spirits and certainly seemed grateful that we were all there. A very cool experience.
