Thanks guys didn't know about a lot of these, especially the Elvis one.
This isn't one that he went to but more recently Brian mentioned he had the chance to see the Doors years ago but didn't end up going and later regretted it.

All of the BBs have probably collectively gone to hundreds of shows over the years, especially in cases where members (Brian, Al) spent extended periods of time not on the road.

Even when they *are* on tour, they still go to shows. I think there was a pic of Mike and Foskett (Mike's new "attached at the hip" guy) last year in the audience at a Monkees show.

I read that Brian was in the audience for their 1997 reunion concert filmed for "The Dance" DVD.

Don't think this one counts as much but Carl used to sit in rehearsals for Billy Joel's band when they toured together

As I recall, I remember reading somewhere that, right after Carl passed, billy joel dedicated Only The Good Die Young to Carl at one of his concerts. I believe he said that, even though he was a struggling no name when he opened for the Boys in the 70's, Carl treated him great,  like he was a tour veteran.

According to Tony Iommi in his book Iron Man/My Journey Through Heaven And Hell With Black Sabbath...on page 103....

The Beach Boys came to see us one night and I didn't know what they looked like. I was coming out of the dressing room and somebody walked up to me and said: 'Can I come in and see the rest of the guys?' 'No, no, there's nobody allowed in the dressing room.' It was a little embarrassing afterwards, when I found out he was a Beach Boy.

Just looked up and found this on mojo :

There’s the time the group threw the Beach Boys’ Al Jardine out of their dressing room in LA (“We all hated The Beach Boys,” says Butler).

This is probably the incident.

I guess you have to question how much their other stories are embellished if not letting someone into the dressing room somehow morphed into throwing someone out of the dressing room, and not knowing what they looked like turned into "hating" them.

Assuming this is Richie Cannata, it's worth noting of course that he's in that film because of his years spent touring in the Beach Boys' backing band (1992-ish to 1998-ish if I'm recalling correctly).

I haven't much heard Billy Joel talk about Carl or the BBs, beyond mentioning he had opened for them.

I do recall Mike (I believe it was Mike) complaining that Billy Joel turned down their invitation to appear on the 25th Anniversary TV special, as if he was too big of a star and didn't want to honor where he had started out, etc.

Bruce, members of The Flame (and possibly Carl) attended a Gene Vincent concert at the Brass Ring, Ventura Boulevard, Sherman Oaks, in LA (20th May 1970)

Picture is here :
