The Mike and Bruce Tour 2014 thread was locked by Billy, so here is the Mike and Bruce Tour 2015 thread.  Drumroll

Discuss tour dates, setlists and other developments. Where will M&B play in January/February? Are we likely to hear any new songs?

Found some early dates here:



Are you willing to see Mike and Bruce perform at Sunrise Theatre for 315.53 dollars for example?

  Mike Love is the greatest authoritarian in the history of rock & roll. Is that a compliment? Up to you.

Sorry???   Mike Love and Bruce Johnston's Beach Boys tickets???  Is that how it's officially being promoted or is it just some site listing the shows as such?

 AND...the one show which suggests that it's a part of the 50th Anniversary Tour is priced at almost 2 1/2 times the next highest priced shows.  It's also the 2nd closest to being a sell out...with only 2 tickets left as I started to type.

That is a pretty significant difference...it can't just be an oversight can it?  What's up with THAT?

Newbury - $40
Mad Garden Festival - $55
Marbella - $22
York - $35-55
The Great Auditorium - $45-60
Freeman Stage - $40-70
American Music Theater - $70
Ohio State Fair - $30

There are some more expensive venues in there but I don`t think anyone could deny that many of the ticket prices (especially at the better attended venues) are very reasonable and certainly much cheaper than C50.

The show is sold out - how many people have bought their tickets believing they will see Brian, Al and Dave? Is this M&B's new modus operandi?

Objectively, I have to ask at what point does the grace/forgiveness period on all of this end? The last official 50th Anniversary "C50" show tickets were sold in early Fall 2012, and I'm with you on this one: I'm disappointed to see a show scheduled in 2015 being advertised like this no matter who shoulders the blame for this listing. Again, at what point does this become something beyond a "mistake" or anything of the sort, and start getting scrutinized as it possibly should be? I'll say again, I share the disappointment because there is no rational explanation to have a 2015 show billed as a 50th Anniversary event, no matter who is to blame for the listing reading that way. If it were a 2013 show, I'd be a little more forgiving and chalk it up to someone's legitimate confusion, but 2015?

Using my (admittedly biased toward benefit of doubt) logic: Mike owning the license for the "Beach Boys" name, may also own the license for the C50 logo, therefore he can do whatever he wants with it ..... And generally, I recall most/many/lots of C50 shows were billed using said logo and then listing David,  Mike, Al, Brian, Brooth off to the side in a separate section of the advert, or above or below the logo.... Mike knows any Beach Boys fan likely to give two shites already knows it will just be him and clap-meister, therefore what should he care? .... Yeah, I think it's silly he wouldn't update it to "52 Anniversary Tour" ..... but if it matters so much: ......... Brian has shows coming up and an album coming out, why not focus on that?

This is the link to the venue`s site:

http://sunrisetheatre.com/shows/the-beach-boys/index.html

Tickets are $65-75.

And certainly no room for confusion over which band people are going to be seeing based on this site.

I'm going to start referring to events like this latest 50th Anniversary billing as a "Niekro moment", in honor of the former major league pitching brothers Phil and Joe Niekro. Every time something like this happens, I'll post for my own amusement a picture of one of the Niekro brothers as a reply.

For those who are baseball fans (I know a few of you definitely are), I'm sure you remember or have at least heard of Phil and Joe. Phil is in the Hall Of Fame, while Joe has one of the more infamous moments in baseball-blooper history that gets replayed constantly to his credit.

For those unfamiliar with baseball, here is the rundown. The Niekro brothers were knuckleballers, which meant they'd throw junk from the mound, average speed around 70 mph (while the average is around 90 in the MLB today), but their pitches would dance more than Fred Astaire as they reached the batter. So these guys pitched beyond the age limit of most pitchers because their arms didn't wear out as much as normal pitchers.

But beyond that, they were known to employ several methods of "doctoring" the ball, in fact if doctoring the ball were a profession, the Niekros would be like neurosurgeons their field. Rumors of them doing everything from hiding Vaseline in the bill of their cap to throw a spitter, hiding a swatch of sandpaper inside their glove to scuff the ball, sharpening a fingernail so they could cut into the stitching on the ball, stashing nail files and other sharp or rough tools in their pockets, etc. It ran the gamut. But if they pitched for you, it was funny and you were glad to have them. If your team couldn't hit for sh*t against one of the brothers, you'd be mad. Typical sports fan stuff.

So one game, Joe Niekro was pitching, throwing his usual knucklers, eephus pitches, and all-out junk to the batters, and something that day must have made his pitches look like the ball was dancing the Tarantella in front of the batters, because the game was stopped and the umps started coming towards Niekro on the mound.

Joe Niekro must have forgotten he was pitching in a televised game, in a stadium with at least 30,000 fans watching, and with the full umpiring crew and other players around the mound. Because in front of everyone, ol' Joe tries to reach into his back pocket and throw away a nail file which he had been hiding during the game. Then he puts up his hands in a "what did I do?" pose, and one of the people on the mound spotted the file hitting the dirt...then the umpire sees it, and immediately ejects Joe, followed by a 10-game suspension by the league.

It's the fact that Joe was so bad at trying to hide the fact that he had just thrown a nail file out of his back pocket in front of everyone, then gives the "I didn't do it" hand/arm gesture that makes it so funny. If this Gif translates to the board, here it is, the ultimate "Niekro moment" in honor of the knuckleballing, ball-doctoring Niekro brothers:

Yeah, but we're talking about The Beach Boys: a rock band ......

I once went and saw WAR, I don't remember when, and was very sad and disappointed to discover it was only Lonnie Jordan and a bunch of other guys ..... Not even an Brooth equivalent anywhere on stage.... I was a bit pissed, but ya know, I could have done 5 seconds of Google research beforehand, and it's not like WAR's been anywhere near much media discussion ........ in a few decades at least ..... unlike our Beach Boys ...... But I also understood that Lonnie owns the name and has every right to keep on keeping on however he needs to do it.... Lee Oskar and the rhythm section have always been my favorite WAR members, so it's not like I'm a Lonnie Jordan apologist ..... Life just does what it does sometimes.
