I'm not uploading these, by the way, just finding them on YouTube. Looks like someone taped most, or all, of the deep cuts.

On Surf's Up, Jeff sings "turn around hard" instead of the correct lyric. Great effort all around but could barely hear the short parts Mike sings at the end.

2012: grrrr… they didn't do Surf's Up!

2015: grrrr… they did Surf's Up! ...without BW or AJ despite them being very much alive and having hoped to continue being Beach Boys

Still, at least they are back on the videoscreens. A touching tribute to their memory. Keep it clean with stock photos of Al Jardine!

While it seems Brian had a bit of a hard time getting some songs in to the C50 set list, I doubt he was terribly keen on them doing Surf's Up, given that he has only done it with Jeff Beck since the BWPS shows, right?

I'm going to shred it into confetti and feed the poor with it. It's what Mike would've wanted.

Seriously, tho: glad some of you guys had fun at the show! I'd have been excited at some of the selections too. But Surf's Up and Til I Die? I dunno. Feels weeeeird. Might as well toss in Love and Mercy at that point, as someone else mentioned.

Damned if you do (the deeper cuts) and
Damned if you don't...

No amount of effort would please some people...

As Roseanne Roseanna Danna used to say..." It's always something."

There is no effort to be made which would satisfy some people.

Like it or not, they are the Touring Beach Boys...

For years people complained that they did too many deep cuts.  

Likely before you were born.

Sorry, it's a bit hard to read these messages through all the tears caused by listening to "Pisces Brother." I hope you'll understand.

That said, I'm never gonna complain about any band, anywhere, playing "Farmer's Daughter." Always appropriate! Forget "Surf's Up," throw in "Finders Keepers" and "The Baker Man." Those would be fun! Marsland's band did a really energetic version of "The Baker Man" and it might be a neat one for M&B to throw in for giggles.

Makes total sense to me.

I actually haven't seen any but a few trolls regularly assert any longer that Mike's band plays "only the hits." For the last decade or so, probably lining up to some degree with Scott Totten's tenure in the band, Mike's band has worked in deeper cuts. While there is some subjectivity to what constitutes a "non hit" or "deep cut", and Mike's band does so many gigs per year and so many types of venues that sometimes he might still do a shorter, more hits-heavy setlist, a simple perusal of setlists will show that Mike's band has been much more pro-active in adding deeper cuts.

The criticism of doing stuff like "Surf's Up" is, as I mentioned earlier, a rather subtle, bittersweet criticism that has more to do with the context of when and how he has added such songs. As I said, his role in leaving the reunion in 2012 will continue to haunt him, in the eyes of some fans (and not just anti-Mike trolls).

I again also suggest that those pining for Mike to reunite with the other guys (and/or lamenting that he isn't still with them) is a tacit endorsement of what Mike adds to the whole.

How did I know that so many people who haven`t posted in this thread for months would reappear when Mike and Bruce started getting rave reviews...

Have yet still yet to read anything but exceptional reviews from anyone who actually attended.

I think the band sounded pretty great on the new additions and I liked Mike's performance on All I Wanna Do..not perfect but I very nice to hear a  sensitive performance from Mike that shows some vulnerability.

There's a term for that, but every time I mention it, I'm the one who gets attacked for bringing it up, instead of the ones who are actually hammering Mike.

Two brilliant gigs into a tour with some great, pleasant surprises so far and all that goes on is more and more bitching and moaning from the same posters. Smile Brian's so clearly pushing an agenda yet tries to shrug off any attempt at calling him out as coming from a "kokomaoist". It's not the difference in opinions that irks me but the sheer toxicity with which he and others do it. Just STFU and enjoy the music and don't judge a live concert based on a cellphone video (this reeeeeaaaalllly should not have to be said as often as it is -- it's common sense).

But then again it's Mike and nothing he does will ever be good enough for some people. I'm looking forward to the May 31st show, gonna be my 3rd and final BB's show of the tour and it promises to be special. Probably not gonna bother checking in here afterwards because it's become a joke seeing the pettiness from the same children over and over again.

One can't have it both ways.  

Actually, not true at all.  I am quite pleasantly surprised to see these songs added to M&B's set, truly floored at the addition of All I Wanna Do, both are moves in an excellent direction... but the fact is the "having it both ways" thing is really Mike having the BBs name back after C50 (yes, I know BRI allows it). The effort that would satisfy most people would be if the reunion had not ended the way it did, and if these wonderful songs were performed with Mike and Bruce back where they should be, which is onstage with their septuagenarian bandmates and family member(s), while all of these talented folks are still on this earth.

Mr. Positivity should have found a way to be positive enough to positively push through any non-positive vibes he was feeling, taken a brief pause to think it over, and then positively assert that he would not let the reunited BBs slip away as they did in such a positively ridiculously negative manner. So let's not pretend that there's no effort that would have satisfied people. THAT would have positively satisfied 99% of fans! C'mon Mr. Positivity! You can still do it!
