I just bought cheap tickets (about half price) to go to their show tonight at the Luhrs Center in PA. I'm honestly only bothering because my girlfriend really wants to go, but based on recent shows there's not really anything too new I haven't seen. Aside from a new bass player and Christian singing God Only Knows, which i'll admit in the videos I've seen he sounds very solid on. But other than that i'm prepared for the same old meat and potatoes show, much more excited to see Al at Rams Head next week.

I wonder if they'll expand the setlist as the new / returning bandmembers get more comfortable.    When I saw them at the Lyric two years ago, it was a 43 (I think) song set. 

That's correct. That show at the Lyric was probably the best I've ever seen Mike and Bruce give...still salty about "All I Wanna Do" getting cut.  LOL

I honestly wish you'd never shared that All I Wanna Do was actually on the setlist only to get cut.   That's beyond disappointing and does slightly temper how much I enjoyed that show.

On Al's live album, he literally crossed songs out on the back cover that he cut out!



I always wondered if excising "Kokomo" so visibly was done purposely. Bummer about "You Still Believe In Me" though; the Wilson sisters sounded good on that on when they toured with Al.

I've always wondered.   If this a picture of a setlist to a show where YSBIM and Kokomo were actually cut out, or were they both left off for length purposes?   If it was a time thing, I'd have gladly sacrificed Fun Fun Fun or Barbara Ann for YSBIM.

Lol @ leaving in California Energy Blues as the show closer.

"California Energy Blues" was a studio track added as a "bonus track" to the CD.

If you look closely, it appears the back cover listing *is* from an actual concert-used setlist, but they've superimposed the bonus track name in the same font.

As for whether the scratched-out songs were scratched out for the show or for the CD, I'm not sure (and keep in mind Al did a run of like a week or two of shows in Las Vegas in late 1999, so the CD probably isn't from one single show), but I'd guess probably for the CD.

I saw two M&B shows this past week. They were both, for the most part, excellent. I've stayed away from this board mostly because I absolutely can't stand the Mike vs. Brian bantering. I don't get how you can walk away from ANY Beach Boys related concert, if you truly love this music, and not have a good feeling in your heart.

Both bands are excellent, both feature original members of The Beach Boys, both make their audience happy. I'm gonna continue to see both for as long as possible.

(But even having said that - the Mark McGrath stuff needs to go, pronto).

In the past couple years, I've attended Brian shows, Mike's Beach Boys shows, and now an Al Storyteller show, and loved every one. 

But, I agree 100% about the Do It Again at Mike's shows.   Never has there been a concert in the history of music that was improved by a contribution by Mark McGrath.

Just checked them out on tbeir site. Ok,...but.the keyboard guy sings Brians parts.......so, how come the bass vocalist is suddenly on the high parts in the next tune?  They seem  reasonable....but, really, "tribute" = "theft" of intellectual property, image and artistry. Increasingly, I find this approach stifling new works and new ideas.

Tribute bands have been around for eons. As long as they're properly advertised, there's nothing wrong with them. Some are awful, a few are great, a lot of them are okay.

Mike Love's tour is essentially a licensed tribute band.

It isn't low-budget tribute bands playing festivals that are stifling "new works and ideas." Talk to the myriad of huge bands/artists (including various iterations of "The Beach Boys" over the years) who toured for decades without creating much in the way of "new works."

I'm frankly surprised that Beach Boys tribute bands can get a decent amount of bookings considering there is an actual band using the "Beach Boys" name playing all year, every year, including some smaller market venues.

 Interlochen is a fantastic venue to see a show.  I wonder if they'll be doing the meet and greet packages for this show?

Wow...they're at the Mountain Winery in CA the next night! Say what you will about these guys (and there is plenty to say...) but they certainly work hard.

They have a new photo on their tour dates page that now includes Keith as well as Christian Love. It also looks like Mike and Bruce's faces have been poorly digitally enhanced to look younger and brighter. It's pretty creepy.

I didn't see anything weird or creepy about the band photo.
