Just out of curiosity: anyone going to one of the Royal Albert Hall concerts on May 30th and 31st?


I'm going to see (and hear) the May 31st gig this Sunday.




Yes, I should be going to both.

"We were looking forward to kicking off our “2015 Summer Days Tour” with a set list that best represents our catalog. There were a few songs we've never performed live like “All I Wanna Do”, and others we haven't performed for awhile. For me personally, it was emotionally rewarding to dive so deeply into our catalog."

Well let history repeat itself - I need to correct something that Ang keeps saying over and over.

Mike Love did NOT refuse to do Surf's Up on the C50 tour.  No one asked to perform that song.

I, however, asked the band to play it when we had some time in Oslo.

Thanks for clarifying again Scott.

It has been stated on the board many times before that Brian`s band have also commented that it is difficult for Brian to sing which is why it is not featured in his solo shows. Some members of the board chose to ignore that info because it did not fit in with their motivations though.

Seconded! I'd have struggled to pick a better setlist. I think people on here sometimes forget what audiences want to hear. The more 'obscure' stuff got polite applause from most people in Manchester, whereas most people leapt to their feet and went crazy for Kokomo. The setlist catered for both sides of the audience excellently, so thank you Scott, I was really impressed with the show.

I love this thread, because it proves conclusively that...

It's not just the band who are alarmingly dysfunctional...

Some fans posters just can't abide that people can enjoy a Mike & Bruce show, and...

F*ckwits & sh*tweasels continue to abound, in abundance.  Smiley

I'd much rather see the C50 lineup over the the two current touring factions, however impressive they might be. Complete no-brainer... but for various reasons, ain't gonna happen again. So I'll enjoy what we've got while I can, starting with the RAH on Sunday and the O2 in September. The time that no original members will still be with us, much less touring, draws ever closer.

Thank you SO much Scott. That's exactly what I asked for. I think it's good for some people on this board to know that bands can play songs just because they're great pieces of music, and not because it's a political statement!

It would be interesting to know how Mike and Bruce feel about playing such a trademark Brian Wilson piece without him though. It's not a bad move by any means, but it is definitely the most Brian-centered piece I think maybe the touring band has ever tackled without him.

The set list from Manchester looks absolutely fantastic and I seriously wish I'd been there. On All I Wanna do I get the comments about Mike's vocals but he just about gets away with it and deserves huge credit for having given it a go. Fortunately the band seems to have done a fantastic job with performing it and the rest of the vocals are outstanding. I can't help but think it would would really suit Bruce's voice these days though, so maybe that's an option for the future.

Well done to all involved for performing a show that covers such a broad range of the catalogue and doing it so well. One of the criticisms I have of the touring band (which can be extended back to the days when Brian, Carl and Dennis still toured) is that the full depth of the Beach Boys music isn't often explored. This is exactly the sort of set set list that I think gives a better impression of what the Beach Boys are, beyond the well known hits.

+1 across the board, agree with all. Very well said. 

Honestly, it was hearing some of the deep cuts at one of the 2012 C50 Beacon shows that got me diving deeper into the back catalog, exposing me to the astonishing range of BBs music and making me much more of a fan.

Agreed. I saw another comment elsewhere that caught my eye, "I saw The Beach Boys last night, wasn't expecting much, left thinking they were amazing, for old guys they can still play!!!"

I`m sure it will be the same for many people. They will come expecting the hits but go away with a better appreciation of the group.

Hi Scott, thanks for posting. Do me a favor please, ask Mike to incorporate those same songs into the U.S. shows. As you can read on this board, we appreciate those deep cuts, as well. Thanks! Smiley

The comment I heard was made before a lot of other other people. Perhaps it was made in jest, though it didn't sound like it. I repeated it in the belief that it was the truth. If it isn't the truth then I regret that fact.

I did find it surprising that this was included in the set list but as it is probably my favourite Brian Wilson song of all I am glad that it gets the attention it deserves.

So let's review, Mike didn't prevent Surf's Up from being played during C50 (nor did anyone) and Mike finds it "emotionally rewarding to dive so deeply into our catalog".

What next? Is no (quote fingers) history (quote fingers) safe from revision?

Let me get this straight too. I'm not revising history. I didn't make anything up. I quoted something (accurately as it happens but of course that doesn't prove it to be true).

I didn't accuse Mike's Beard of revision when he incorrectly - not slightly incorrectly but absolutely incorrectly - stated that Dennis lost his vote to pay off debts years before his death. I assumed it to be a mistake. My quote wasn't a mistake - at least, not by me. Perhaps it was a mistake to quote it without being able to prove it.

1. You screwed up big time by derailing a thread with your off-base comments.

2. You insisted on the matter and relented only when argued by an insider (instead of warning the rest of the world that you could be talking nonsense, you kept insisting).

3. There is nothing wrong with Surf's Up making it into a 2015 setlist.

4. Don't crap on other members like Mike's Beard. Own your words, apologize and move on, and do not embrace others in an attempt to make it less shameful.

For Ang to post false information once about the group when they just happen to be getting rave reviews from fans in the U.K. could be considered unfortunate. Doing it twice however...

I think the motivations of several posters in this thread are clear and I have to commend them. Due to their diligence and hard work we have now reached the point where Mike and Bruce`s shows are given a fairer and more positive reception on the Blueboard than they are here (no exaggeration).

Personally I think I would prefer to just focus on enjoying the music...

How have you proven it's false information? Coulda just been a joke she heard from a disgruntled Brianista. Besides, even if there was recorded evidence of what she heard, it wouldn't matter would it? There would be no way you'd accept it. Search your feelings, Nicko1234. You will know it to be true.
