Jesus, the 53rd Anniversary Pet Sounds tour! Shocked

Maybe SMiLE might be a bit too ambitious to perform if Brian's still recovering somewhat from his back operation, but surely everyone who would want to see a Pet Sounds show or two would have had that opportunity by this point?

I know I sound like a dusty CD, but...didn't Brian say after the 2006 Pet Sounds mini-tour that after that tour was over he was retiring Pet Sounds? Smiley

People, those two 2019 dates are makeup dates for some of the cancelled 2018 PS shows.

Baltimore Hippodrome June 12th

This is BS. He brought the 50th Anniversary of Pet Sounds Final Performances to this venue in August of 2016, and now what? The FINAL FINAL performance in 2019?

I'll pass.

I'll pass.

Separate from Brian's on-stage enthusiasm for the material, I don't see anything wrong with booking PS shows. Meaning, they're clearly getting offers from promoters/venues to book PS shows. They probably get more offers and/or more lucrative offers/guarantees for PS shows.

The issue is that Brian seems to have long since lost enthusiasm for the PS set. This has been happening since 2016. I previously thought time off in between tours might reinvigorate his enthusiasm for the material, but apparently not.

So yeah, in terms of Brian's on-stage performance (where he still seems to have some vigor/enthusiasm for the non-PS songs), I do wonder why they are continuing to book the PS gigs. I think they've already spread around the lead vocals as much as they can.

However, while several June dates are materializing, we don't yet know the extent to which they'll be touring in 2019. It may still be a "light" year touring-wise.

I'd say some will be makeup dates and some will be dates to make going out on tour worth it, even if it's a one-month gig or so. Might as well only practice one set, too, hence more "Pet Sounds."

If they happen to book a show near me, will definitely be going again!

Out of curiousity, how long does it take for a band of Brian's caliber to rehearse a song from scratch up until it's ready to be performed? Take for example "Mess of Help" which they haven't done live (and I can dream, can't I?). If Brian came up with the idea to play it, how long before it could be in the setlist?

"Mess of Help" would be a great showcase for Blondie!

To play it well with accuracy? A half hour?

To re-create the record and ensure that can be repeated night after night? (For these guys) probably just a few days.

I think the repetitive setlists are to keep Brian on track although, that seems to bore him. This band could play thirty different songs every night without a problem.

Al is such a competent vocalist, and Blondie is great as well (not to mention the rest of the band)
Would it help to just retire Brian from leads? Have him on piano and throwing in some background vocals when he feel up to it.

While I think the initial 1999 Brian tour proved that this core of musicians (meaning the ones who are still with him now) can play and sing just about anything a Brian/BB-themed show could possibly throw at them, if anybody had any doubts, latter-day projects outside of that initial 1999 setlist scope definitively prove it.

They pulled off full album tours for PS and Smile in the early-mid 2000s.

On C50 in 2012 they proved they can be the definitive live band when performing "Mike-centric" songs not normally in Brian's setlists, like "Kokomo", "It's OK", "Still Cruisin", and so on.

For the 2014 PBS Soundstage taping, they had "Hold on Dear Brother" thrown at them and they did a jaw-dropping version completely with an impeccable Probyn guitar solo.

They pulled off all of those XMas songs last month, ranging from throwback arrangements on stuff like "Frosty the Snowman" to 70s vibe stuff like "Winter Symphony."

I think any released or unreleased track in the Brian/BB orb could not only be done by this band, but could be done in definitive live fashion.

The live band has literally gotten *better* with Matt Jardine and Al Jardine in the fold. It's of course a bummer that this has all occured as Brian's live performances have eroded in quality to varying degrees (depending on the day he's having, and also which song/setlist selection we're talking abotu).

I think seeing this band (or perhaps a slightly scaled-back version) back Al in concert would be ideal, but it'll likely never happen as Al can't do large enough shows to pay for the band.

I do still wish someone would throw enough money at Al to work up maybe a week's worth of deep cut shows with most of Brian's backing band, and shoot it for a Blu-ray (and live album).

But, to the original question, I have zero doubt that Brian's band could over the course of a few hours put together an impeccable "Mess of Help."

While we're sometimes seeing lately an increase of (sometimes justifiable) mixed/poor reviews of Brian's stage performance, I think if he continued to go out on tour and book shows as "Brian Wilson" but completely stepped away from any leads, that would lead to some problems with audiences/reviewers/critics and promoters.

I think they'd either have to book "Al/Blondie" shows separately (which isn't economically viable with that large band), or vastly change the billing of the shows to emphasize that it's something more like a "Glen Miller Orchestra" type of show, with with Glen Miller sitting in.

I think this is why a full Beach Boys reunion lineup would be ideal for Brian (theoretically; I realize the interpersonal and political reasons this isn't happening and maybe shouldn't). He could cut back on leads even more, but still participate, and he'd have four other guys (or five if they added Blondie) to pick up the slack, and no problems with show billing.

I saw Brian in November and I would be surprised if he took half the leads. I could be wrong, but it felt like Al took the majority of leads between Brian, Al and Blondie. Blondie's (lack of) use during the standard set is still baffling. I truly hope Brian and crew take some time off before June and don't book any shows in the interim. I hope that cures some of the ills I saw in November, but I would be surprised at this point. Too far gone.

Interesting! It has vanished completely from Brian's tour page as well as his Facebook page. I never saw it on the Hippodrome website to begin with. I wonder if they jumped the gun with promotion and something fell through.

Actually, the Baltimore show looks like it might be back on as I saw it listed on the Hippodrome site -- says tix go on sale in a couple of days.
Brian's site doesn't list that one but does list a new date in NJ for June 11th.

Re:  The "Final Performances" - I can understand the disappointment that the marketing turned out to be false.  I attended a Farewell Tour concert by the Rolling Stones several years ago before many subsequent tours.  However, in my case I'm actually hoping to see a Pet Sounds performance this year.  In addition to lifelong fans, there are probably other people like myself who for whatever reason might have recently rediscovered the Beach Boys.

Added 6/11 and 6/16 dates to the top post schedule, and also indicated that the May "Beachlife" show is likely not a PS date but a "regular" setlist show.
