As mentioned in the Carl Wilson late 70s thread, can I suggest this topic be continued there so as not to bog down Brian’s tour thread?

Just saying.  Smiley

I didn't envision that there was much left to say about Carl and his issues. The topic came up relating to how Brian is dealing with back issues versus how Carl may have long ago. Seems like a normal slight thread deviation to me, nothing more. If anything, Carl's situation back in 1978 details how Brian dealing with his back issues by *not* going off the deep end is, obviously, fortuitous if nothing else.

I'm sure once Brian's dates start back up over the next few days, there will be more discussion of that.

Back on to Brian's tour, I was thinking that, if he were to continue touring next year, these partial Friends/Surf's Up mini-sets indicate a format that he could use on a few other albums. Specifically, and referencing something Al also mentioned in a recent interview, they could perhaps do a hunk of "Sunflower" next year. I've never thought doing the full album was likely; I don't envision anyone in Brian's band singing "Tears in the Morning." But I could picture a set of 6-7 "Sunflower" songs, perhaps:

Add Some Music To Your Day
This Whole World
Forever
All I Wanna Do
At My Window
Our Sweet Love
Cool Cool Water

This would also provide a mix of leads from the group, Brian, Al, Darian, and Matt.

Fair enough HJ, but we do know how threads have gone seriously off topic sometimes


Nice shot Bossaroo, especially Brian’s kit.

Actually there was a video (Endless Harmony?) where the song Cool Cool Water comes up and Brian from memory gets pretty excited then starts singing it. Would be a great addition.

Would love this!

I thought that all the guys singing Add Some Music around the piano was one of the major highlights of C50... hence the screenname I chose when I started posting here that year.  Smiley

Awesome potential setlist, but I'd throw in Blondie doing "It's About Time" as well.

I would not protest that eventuality in the slightest. They seem to stick to giving Blondie three leads for whatever reason, and he's probably always going to do "Sail on Sailor", so they could indeed mess around with the other two. "Long Promised Road" has sounded quite good. Maybe they could swap "Feel Flows" for "It's About Time" or something along those lines. Or, crazy I know, let Blondie take four leads.

Of course, I have a slew of other songs I'd like to see them do. I still think "Goin' On" would be perfect for the band to do, and *nobody* in any of the touring bands has touched that song live since 1980.

Per Brian's Facebook:

Brian's got some amazing (surprise) special guests performing with him at the Greek Theatre in L.A. tonight! There are tickets still available!

I wonder who they could be talking about???

Maybe the reason Blondie is onstage so little is simply because he's 68 years old, and it'd maybe cause him some pain to be standing up onstage for two hours. Maybe his appearances throughout the show are all he can physically handle at this age?

With that being said, if those reasons aren't the case, I'd love to see Blondie on stage the whole time. He obviously knows the hits from playing with The BBs during his original tenure, and he's definetely a competent musician who could learn material like "Lookin At Tomorrow" or "I Can Hear Music"... His presence on guitar might also give some of the early rockers the drive they need.

Al is standing on stage the whole time, and he's considerably older than Blondie.

Count me in as another one who would like to see Blondie take more leads. There are a number of songs from Carl and the Passions and Holland that would make a lot of sense.

Brian's LA show at The Greek Theater was phenomenal. A really, really moving tribute to Carl by the whole band (Blondie in particular).

A few notes:

- Just prior to singing Long Promised Road, Blondie did what I'd best describe as a chant, where he shouted something to the effect of "Carl, where are you now", and with those poignant words echoing with reverb into the open air, it was truly something to witness. I can't quiet explain how moving that was. Everyone was missing Carl hard at this show. The song's performance (and Feel Flows) were also breathtaking. Blondie adds SO much to the show.

- During the tag/outro of Long Promised Road, Blondie added "in the nude" after the vocal "I'd Love to See You", thus tying in Brian's Wild Honey classic.

- Darian and Matt were vocally amazing. The whole band really lifted up Brian in such a profound way. There was something emotional in the air that I haven't really felt at most other BW shows. Blondie also paid an emotional tribute to Nicky.

- Al was awesome, as usual, and goofed up a bit on Looking At Tomorrow, and played the song with a goofy, slightly embarrassed grin on his face.

- Brian thanked many people, including Kevin Leslie, who Brian said was in the audience. I was not expecting that. I don't know the details of their relationship, but as always, Brian is an especially kind and forgiving soul.

- Brian played piano (with no other instrumentation) during In My Room, and I hope that shuts up anyone who says that Brian doesn't play any actual piano at shows. I have a feeling this arrangement was cooked up for that very reason.

- The Friends songs were OUTTASIGHT. Never in a MILLION years thought I'd see Diamond Head and Passing By played live. Little Bird was fantastic. Friends (the song) BLEW ME AWAY.

- So glad to see this NOT be a Pet Sounds show. Brian and the whole band were much more engaged with the Friends material. Darian looked like he was REALLY having fun with those songs.

- Billy's Idol appearance was a rad, very unexpected treat.


See Brian on this tour if you have the chance. Do it.

Fantastic review! So glad you got the chance to see Brian on his home turf. Sounds like an *amazing* night.

I'm going this time. I have my tickets. I sat out the last few PS tours since 2016, but this one I felt was going to be special. And I hope they keep Diamond Head and Passing By in the setlist by the time they hit the East Coast.

Second the notion posted by CD to see this tour...it isn't going to last forever.

Blondie did that in Indio a couple weeks ago, as well.  "Brother Carl, where are you?  Brother Carl, where are you?"  Glad to hear that the audience responded well to that (compared to at Indio where it seemed to me that much of the audience didn't really get it).  Sounds like a great show

Yep. It's a very, very special tour. It's really worth seeing, and it's not going to last forever.

Also, can't believe I forgot to mention how RAD The Zombies were. Wow. If the Brian set wasn't great enough, this was an wonderful appetizer for the evening. Also props to Darian and Probyn for killing it during The Zombies' set.

Darian is really the unsung hero for so much of this wonderful music being brought to life. What a dude.

As someone who’s always up for hearing some Love You songs in the set, I think Blondie would really hit hard on “Let Us Go On This Way”.
