I was at a 1972 show in College Park, MD and Bruce asked the crowd if anybody was at the Moody Blues concert in Baltimore the night before.  I had been at that Moody Blues show.  They played the Surf's Up lp as the lead up to the Moody's appearance, so there must have been some interaction.

Brian saw the Four Freshman a second time, later in life, at Newport Beach. He talks about both concerts in his book.

All those BBs shows where BW watched and didnít take the stage with them....

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

Carl was with Dennis at the Queen concert. I believe it was in Mike's book. Dennis was drunk and the members of Queen didn't want to meet him. I think it was 75 or 77.

Good one, SB! I'm sure I was at a few of those. Reportedly, he was backstage at one of the Carnegie concerts I attended. From what I understand, they were coaxing him to walk on for a couple of songs but failed to do so. If only, huh?

From what I've heard, the Beach Boys were invited to see one of Elvis Presley's 1969 comeback shows in Vegas and attended. So, Dennis and Carl saw him as well. Brian probably wasn't there.

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.

Brian was at the August 1969 Elvis show with his wife Marilyn. The guy that took them to the show was road manager jack Lloyd, who I interviewed for my book

Ah yes I remember, I think it was a new Four Freshmen band, none of the original members.

Good idea for a thread. I would bet between them they've seen 100's of shows, especially Dennis and prob carl. It's just too bad there isn't direct proof thats easy to find.
In Mike's book he talks about going to see Richard Pryor at the Troubadour at least a few times in the late 60s. Not sure if that counts since hes comedy not music.

Mike attended a Barry Manilow performance in the early '80s. He went there with Marvin Gaye (p100).

Oops! I now see it's a Wilsons-only topic. I do apologize.

Cool! I didn't know Brian was there (without the Beach Boys?). It's been said that Elvis introduced the Beach Boys but as of yet no recording surfaced. The August engagement were the very first Presley concerts since 1961 and they are probably among the finest Rock'n'Roll shows of all time. Some of the shows were recorded by RCA on multitrack for what became the live half of the double album "From Memphis to Vegas/From Vegas to Memphis" which was later separately released as "In person".
Through the years a couple of full shows were released both on the main label Sony/BMG and the Elvis collectors label "Follow that dream" and of course bootlegs with audience recordings.
All of them were dynamite. Here's but one example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ChCSPY2gpo

Is the exact show known that Brian attended? And was he introduced to the audience by Elvis? Here's a listing of all the '69 shows

When I met Al in 2005, he mentioned he had just seen The Eagles in concert.

Al also in the last year or two posted a bunch of pics of a Moody Blues show he had attended.

Peter Frampton mentioned in a chat, when I prompted him if he had any weird Brian Wilsons stories, that Brian took Carnie and Wendy to a Frampton show circa '76 or '77 when they were kids. However, the twist in the story was that when Brian went back stage to meet Frampton, Frampton told Brian what a big fan he was, etc., and that he hoped he would enjoy the show, and Brian told him bluntly "Oh, I'm not here to see the show. I just brought my daughters to see you."

As a fan of both bands I love these tidbits  Grin

Got this from someone of another forum. Thanks to him!

I would be surprised if Brian hadnít just, or was about to, see Chuck Berry going by this shot.

I don't think Elvis knew they were there.  Allegedly when they tried to meet Elvis afterwards they were rebuffed by his people and no meeting took place

How about Dennis attending Carl's solo show in the early 80's! As the story goes DW had too much to drink and was a bit  rowdy!
