Looks like the touring group is performing on PBS’s Fourth of July concert again this year. Stamos is hosting the show and will guest with the Beach Boys. Mark McGrath will also guest with the BBs. Sounds like some good fun to me.

"The Blues Brothers" have one original member, "The Four Tops" have one original member, and "The Beach Boys" have one original member!

Ill have to check that out.  Though Id rather see Stamos onstage with The Beach Boys than Mark McGrath.

This was pretty dreadful when Mike's band was on this a few years ago (2014?). A lot of miming to pre-recorded tracks. I'm sure it's the choice of the show's producers to do it that way, but it makes all the artists look silly.

Even sillier was the controversy last year of even using pre-recorded video of fireworks footage from previous years on the telecast.

I don't see the point in punishing Brian's musical output solely because Mike wants to wow the President Elect with how long he can weeze "wheeeeeeen" into a microphone.- rab2591

How embarrassing for the Beach Boys. I guess it is better than playing weddings and Bar mitzvahs though.

I remember a "Capitol Fourth" in 1980.I happened to be stationed in Japan at the time.HBO put out an hour film on it and I think it was simulcast on some radio stations' I have heard that somewhere the whole concert is[was] available.It would be interesting to see-hear ,the difference between the two. The crowd was LARGE in '80...any body know of or have the 1980 show? If so,What do you think of it?I remember the HBO show and a friend taped some of it off WNEW New York FM.It seemed like a good time!!!

The HBO hour long version was released on DVD in the late 90s in Japan. Pieces of it at least are on YouTube these days I believe.

The full soundboard recording is on Concert Vault and Wolfgang's Vault. They used to be sold as downloads, but it looks like now it's membership streaming.

The new PBS July 4th stuff they do is totally different. It's only a few songs, and probably mimed to some degree.

Ouch, that was rough. 95% pre-recorded, I would say. “Do It Again” was the new single recording and “Surfin’ USA” was the same recording Mike released last year on that PBS set (with maybe a live ending). I guess I’m not familiar enough with the technical considerations for putting on a show, but wasn’t the slip-up with Stamos not getting the microphone to work during his transition to the next act basically an admission they didn’t run live audio?

The Beach Boys performance was just an alright lip-sync, then the Four Tops , who have hired a lead singer, who sounds nothing like Levi Stubbs, Levi was one of the all-time great singers, I think they could have gotten someone who can belt em out!

A wonderful LipSync presentation.  The Beached Boys are now officially Milli Vanilli.  Good gawd!!!  Even the 4 Tops w/o their unique and outstanding lead vocalist...the late GREAT Levi Stubs...sang live.

There ya have it.  Actual international proof that bad ol' Mike can't deliver the 'goods' well enough to be allowed to perform live when it matters...at least not on worldwide television.  Kellie Pickler is missing her notes but at least she's LIVE.  Kind  of a crappy show all in all really.  No wonder the turnout was so unimpressive.  Most of the 'grounds' were only partially filled.  The Lincoln Memorial [I believe] was almost unattended.  I guess that's all they can get to come and perform in DC these days.  So?  LOADS of folks stayed home.

Perhaps the final nail in the coffin for the Beach Boys legacy. Mike Love should have the BB name taken away in an emergency BRI meeting.

If they survived Summer Of Love on Baywatch I'm pretty sure this forgettable bit of fluff won't be the final nail in anything. They did an oldie, the crowd danced around, some guy shouted 'do it' and tried to get the crowd geed up. Boom, it popped, burst and like a mediocre firework, nobody will remember it in the morning.

Supposedly it was Levi's dying wish to keep the Tops going without him.  I still have zero interest in hearing them sing without him.

that 'do it again' pbs performance was a 'disaster', and fake as hell.
what is with this 'sugar ray' guy? what a pain in the ass to watch him
with a real performer like Mr Love. 
kick him off and never bring that clown back to the Beach Boys.

Perhaps the final nail in the coffin for the Beach Boys legacy. Mike Love should have the BB name taken away in an emergency BRI meeting.

Worst of all - instead of presenting a song to promote the awesome new collection "Sunshine Tomorrow", Mike pulls out a shitty solo remake of a song not related to the new release. Their must be some language in the license requiring him to properly promote new releases.

And Mike looks like a grizzled old man. Time to retire!
