Anybody going to the Colorado Springs tour opener tonight?

It looks like they're doing the two April shows and then they're off again until early May. So my guess would be these first two shows aren't going to have like a mind-blowingly different setlist.

But definitely curious to see where things are after six months off.

Id say Blondie might get a new song on these tours but hes not even confirmed for these GH shows. Hopefully Al keeps Susie Cincinnati in the set and Wild Honey mini set.

I doubt Susie or Wild Honey tunes will stick around, as much as I want them to. I'd expect meat and potatoes (by Brian's standards) tonight.

I'm not sure the setlist is 100% accurate, but one has been posted at setlist.fm and indicates Blondie was there.

It also lists "Cool Cool Water", though in the past people have listed that song when it's actually "California Saga: California."

Interesting. Either way, they dropped in Feel Flows, Let Him Run Wild, and Susie Cincinnati...which are all great deep cuts for the show in my book. Sure, they've been done recently but they don't have a storied legacy with the live show by any stretch and I've never heard them live before! I'd be more than happy if they stuck around for the Kennedy Center concert!

I'd be more than happy if they stuck around for the Kennedy Center concert!

If I had to guess, once the PS set is dropped in, you'd be more likely to see "Feel Flows" and "Susie Cincinnati" survive, as those were performed during last year's PS shows. I think "Let Him Run Wild" is one of those "alternates" that isn't regularly in the setlist. I figure at least a few of the songs in last night's setlist would have to be dropped to accommodate nine more PS songs.

As far as the setlist last night in general, it looks fine and it's about what I would expect. This and the next show are essentially one-offs prior to the tour ramping up in a few weeks, and one-off type shows usually don't have epically weird setlists.

That's what I suspected. Not sure why that mistake gets made so often at setlist.fm. One would think that anybody that is nerdy and detail-oriented enough to post something on setlist.fm would also be detail-oriented enough to either be familiar with the artist's catalog or look up any song they're not familiar with. This is a good reminder of the occasional downside of setlist.fm.

Brian's people posted on Facebook that Vicar St, Dublin has been added for August 21 and 22. Tickets on sale April 26th at 10.am. http://thethinair.net/2018/04/brian-wilson-set-for-dublin-return/

BTW Brian is also playing on August 18th at Doncaster - not shown yet on page 1 of this thread.

When I was getting deeper and deeper into it, the first time I heard California Saga I assumed it was Cool, Cool Water (I'd heard of the latter but never heard it, and still haven't heard it but that's not the point Grin).

I think I listed the Doncaster show a few days back. It's under the "Greatest Hits" section of gigs. I also added the Dublin gigs earlier this morning. They apparently will also be GH shows.

Are we to assume the percussionist change is permanent?

I'm kind of surprised they felt the need to replace Nelson Bragg. Not that he's not a great drummer/percussionist, and not that having that extra percussion isn't cool. But I would think they might have just had Matt Jardine resume his old percussionist role as he did in the old days with the BBs. But maybe they need Matt more up front (and he does play some key guitar parts in the band now), and certainly Matt hasn't usually don't elaborate percussion the way D'Amico or Bragg have done in the past.

It's funny that personnel changes in Brian's band seem kind of more jarring because he's had less (proportionate) turnover in his band compared to a lot of touring bands including in some cases the actual BBs.

The big question: Did John Stamos audition to be Bragg's replacement?  LOL

I'm gonna just go ahead and assume this is step one of merging Brian and Mike's band back together for another reunion tour, as I would doubt Mike would want to play with Bragg again after he besmirched the name of Stamos.....  LOL

I'll really miss Nelson not just for his undoubted skills but also for his enthusiasm and for his public relations talents. Nelson was always ready to meet with the fans.

I sincerely hope it ISN'T about another reunion. I would find that awful rather than funny! After the last time, funny peculiar rather than amusing.

Yeah, to be even more explicitly clear, my reunion reference was most definitely a joke.

Don't get me wrong, while I appreciate Nelson's work, I would absolutely sacrifice his participation if it meant a true, harmonious, and fruitful BB reunion along the lines of 2012. But I don't think any of that is something that's even on the table at this point.

Brian evidently did a private fundraiser show on April 19 in Denver. I've added it to the top post.

It's possible that Nelson quit, as opposed to being let go, right? He's a drummer and songwriter himself, so maybe he wanted to pursue other projects.

Interestingly, setlist.fm indicates that the show ended with Fun Fun Fun rather than Love and Mercy. In My Room and California Saga were also dropped from the set for this private show.

It's interesting that they didn't shorten it too much. Private/corporate/fundraiser gigs are often if not usually shorter.

Added a 12/8 show in Wallingford, CT to the top post schedule. This is of course an XMas show.

I've added the Edinburgh gig to the top post schedule. The website for the concert series shows this one as a PS show.
