Actually pretty cool to be fair. Imagine your local bar/ restaurant and you get this...

Bruce sounds fantastic! Really cool to see them in a different environment. Thanks for sharing!

IKR!! I almost lost my jaw when he started the falsetto on fun fun fun, like how the hell is he managing that in his age?
And these clips only makes me more furious that they don’t give him more spotlight at the regular shows.

Although every person has a different thing going on, I would guess that one factor is that if someone has some remnants of an old falsetto still kicking around, where their voice can still technically hit some high notes in some cases, it's easier to just kind of go high and shoot for an "oooooooooo" over a few notes. I'd wager Bruce would have a harder time, say, singing the full "Don't Worry Baby" in falsetto for instance.

Has Jeff been supporting the Todd Rundgren/Micky Dolenz/Christopher Cross/etc. White Album tour shows? Think I spot him in this pic here. https://twitter.com/itsmrcross/status/1182632450599591937

Looks like him for sure. Check my post under the Jeff Foskett thread however. I think the reason for his absence is explained.

Yeah, that does look a hell of a lot like Jeff, but with us all being so analytical about everything BBs related, you'd think someone would've noticed by now.......

What is going on?!  That falsetto is so high!  Has Bruce been drinking from the same fountain of youth as Al Jardine?

Not with any regularity! I'll give credit where it's due; he nails it here. But that is NOT always the case!

31 minutes in to the clip Bruce is there with those high falsettos again. This is super cool! He really should get some more solos as his voice is the one that holds up the best apart from Jardine who’s obviously not there.

Bruce does a great job at those high oooos , always has . But his lead voice is not that strong . You can catch him on a good night sometimes but I’ve heard him croak his way through some leads too over the past several years .

He does sing that one note really well

Agreed.  I saw them two summers ago and his singing was rough even then.  But that falsetto on Fun, Fun, Fun is pretty great.  As is the mic-adjusting.

Does anyone know why the touring seems to be getting dying down? There are only 2 shows this month.

BBFC shows four shows for the remainder of November. There could be more shows beyond those that are corporate/private gigs.

But yes, it seems over the last few years, on and off, Mike has slowed his tour schedule in the November-January time frame. I could envision a lot of reasons. However one feels about Mike, and even acknowledging his backing band does a lot of heavy lifting, it's undeniable that he maintains a pretty good stamina at nearly 80 years old touring all year. But it seems possible if not likely that he's slowing a little a bit. So perhaps he's looking more at 100-125 shows per year instead of 150-175.

Also, maybe at nearly 80 years old he finally feels like maybe he'd want to spend the holidays (and not just flying home on December 24th) at home.

I also tend to wonder if Mike would have some increased band member retention issues if he continues to push the band out on the road so often, all year, with only small breaks. I'm sure there are always willing musicians to be on the road 365 days per year, but if he wants to keep some of the important stalwart members of his band, they might eventually tire if they never get a holiday season with their family, etc.

Seems like a win-win for everybody. They still make boat loads of money touring *most* of the year, but take a few more breaks and maybe being off the road in the Winter more means more holiday time at home, and less weather-impacted travel.

I'm gonna take a guess, maybe he wants to spend the holidays with his family. I think they are pretty important to him. No worries, he's got lots of shows booked for next year.
