I think it'll be interesting to see if the "new" songs from Summer Days...stick around for the rest of Mike and Bruce's dates in the UK and when returning to the states. They're playing North and South of Baltimore in Lancaster, PA and Vienna, VA....a decent setlist shake-up just might ignite a bug in me to go!

I have tickets for the show in Vienna.  I'm hoping for some deep cuts, but it seems like The Beach Boys give the UK much better setlists than the states. 

Heck, even on the C50 Tour, when they played 48 songs when I saw them in Maryland, the UK got 61 at the Royal Albert Hall.

Yeah...the C50 set at Merriweather was perfect. That was just a perfect day all around. No Beach Boys concert experience will ever top that for me.

I had a horrible experience at Wolf Trap with the staff and parking at last summer's Ringo concert so I'm still a little bitter about returning. But, The Beach Boys are 3pm on a Sunday afternoon...which also makes me think this will be a greatest hits kind of show. If we get any of the "new" songs, I think they're more likely to be heard in Lancaster since it's an indoor theatre vs. Wolf trap.

I 'get' Kokomo being important to Mike.  It was a huge hit and their most recent.  I think shows need to be changed up from time to time though.  The same thing every year is...well...it's the same thing every year.

I would make Fun-cubed the 2nd last song in the main set...and Kokomo the last song.  Then...yahoo...yeahhh...more/more/more...Beach Boys...yabadabadoooo.

Encore.

Good Vibrations
I Get Around.

[gone.]

ps...I also think Brian needs to give Fun-cubed a rest as the ultimate song.  [and nobody should do Barbara Ann for at least 4 more years.]

Damn. Deep cuts. They gave you "Duke of Earl", "Barbara Ann" and "Still Cruisin'"? Musta been a great time to see them. Too bad they couldn't at least have thrown in Beach Boys classics like "Surf City" and "Little GTO"!


Nah. Just kidding. Seeing any combination of Beach Boys doing "'Til I Die", "All This Is That", "Sail On Sailor" and others is pretty sweet. And I kinda like "Still Cruisin'" too. So I wouldn't have minded it!  Grin

I saw them there last summer and it was about ten songs shorter...the only unusual songs were "Please Let Me Wonder" and "Still Cruisin"...otherwise, standard set.

When they did "'Til I Die" in London, 2004, I nearly fell over. When they did it in Lancaster about six months later, I pretty much did.

I think with the advent of Goth and Emo Mike has twigged to the commercial potential of the downer song. If the BBs started today he'd be screaming about how tough it is to be a white, middle class suburban kid growing up in America and how 'no one gets him'.

An d Dennis would have been into parkour. Mike would use his friend's guest pass to a parkour club in 2008 and would've written Do it Again.

In all honesty, I was really just a casual BB fan before I saw that Merriweather show.  I had my Sounds of Summer / Warmth of the Sun anthology and a copy of Pet Sounds when I bought a lawn seat at the last second.  I expected a good show, but I was not expecting to be completely blown away and transformed into a BB/BW diehard.

Everyone was in top form. It was nothing short of a spiritual experience and except for Paul McCartney and maybe Billy Joel, it's near the top of concert tours I've seen.

what do the folks who have seen the Ike/ Cowsill bass - drums section think of this in comparison to Kirsch/Cowsill?    Me thinks that chemistry doesn't just come together over night.   I guess I'll find out next month.    Saw them in March withJeff instead of Christian.  next month I see yet another configuration with Randell out and Ike in.    I'm wondering how Scott T.   Handles coordinating all of these personnel changes?

They have changed the setlist quite a lot over the last few shows which possible indicates some of the deep cuts that will be played in the U.K. Some of the songs performed recently include:

You Still Believe in Me
Here Today
Disney Girls
You`re So Good To Me
Kiss Me Baby
It`s OK
Pisces Brothers
Don`t Back Down
Good to My Baby
Cottonfields (a cert in the UK of course)
Betsy
Spring
Wendy
Goin to the Beach
Wild Honey etc.

Sure but I guess my point was that those are a lot of deep cuts for them to have rotated over the space of a week or so. Doubtless several of them will end up in the UK sets...

Obviously I would expect things like All This is That and Forever to turn up as well as hopefully some surprises.

I'd love to hear "Here Today"...the clip from January of that was really nice. They need to embrace the more artsy stuff that still features Mike on lead...that'll be the best way to please the general fans and the few big fans that get out to see them. "That's Not Me" has been disgustingly ignored over the years.

Given their using a brass section at the London gigs, I'm hoping they're going to include the Floral Dance. The bass vocals are within Mike's range, easy.

Excellent show in Manchester tonight, no idea how many songs but 8pm til 11pm with a 20 min intro. Amazing to hear them do stuff like Til I Die and Kiss Me Baby, and the mini Smile set of Heroes And Villains followed by Surf's Up was certainly pleasant...
