I had the wonderful experience of seeing Beatles Love last night. It was absolutely breathtaking. The sets, costumes, choreography, lights, sound, and of course THE MUSIC were all amazing. They even had an entire Beatles store with all of their music and all of the Beatles paraphernalia you could ask for.

The whole thing got me thinking, could there be a cirque du soleil show, like LOVE, but with the Beach Boys??? Perhaps called (Mike) Love!  LOL LOL LOL

I'm sure Mike would be cool with that.


it's a nice idea, but I imagine it would be hard to get past all the generic fun-in-the-sun imagery and have folks really take the music seriously.

and I'm sure Mike would be cool with that.

A Cirque show set to Smile would be awesome.

IIRC Brian actually asked George Martin's son if he would work some Beach Boys stuff the same way he did do with the Beatles' on "Love", but he declined.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

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 recall Giles Martin actually volunteering that he had discussed that with Brian. I don't recall Martin saying he rejected it. I would imagine it was just talk and nothing more. I also recall the implication being Brian was interested in the remix/mashup aspect of it musically, as opposed to anything to do with Cirque du Soleil.
