Dang that stinks - was hoping Baltimore would be more affordable - I'm not close but saw the show in Ohio has seats as low as $20...

I had 2nd row seats at Montgomery College for $10 each in 2015. No way am I paying triple digits four years later for a show I've seen three times since.

Why do so many people on this board pretend that Brian live is good? This guy shouldn't be out on tour-the video's I've seen are really of a guy who seems almost forced to be participating in a show...

He has an incredible band playing and singing the music he wrote, and I've never been anything less than blown away after seeing him in concert. Sure, Brian doesn't sound the same as he did back in '65 and he isn't always engaged 100%, but just being in his presence while his music comes alive around him is an excellent experience that has always been worth the money

I agree, Brian was in great form and I felt I got my money's worth in 2015 when I saw him on the NPP tour.

I saw Brian late last year, dragging out Pet Sounds "one more time" and decided I would never pay to see him, again. I'm hoping Al brings his solo tour within driving distance--he was still in great voice.

Absolutely. I saw Brian (with Al and Blondie) in 2015 and it was amazing. Absolutely wonderful show.

Why do so many people on this board pretend that Brian live is good? This guy shouldn't be out on tour-the video's I've seen are really of a guy who seems almost forced to be participating in a show...

So you're basing your opinion of these shows on tinny sounding videos made by a microphone/camera as small as a grain of rice, which is then uploaded in a lossy format to youtube, and probably listened to on speakers the size of two grains of rice on your phone?

In person these shows are phenomenal...his backing band helps immensely even when Brian isn't on point for a few songs. Is Brian the 23 year old kid we hear on the records? Heck no, and he hasn't been since he was 23. His voice has changed every year of his existence, it's been ravaged by years of smoking and drug use, and he is now 76 yet still out there putting on a show. We're beyond lucky we can still see him perform, and I think most fans know what they're getting into when they buy tickets.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

Honestly, has anyone heard Brian's band sound less than spectacular? I know they're terribly self-critical and some fans grab comments from them with that modesty and say they had a bad night. Brian has physical challenges these days, but performs anyway. My last experience about 4 months ago, he sang less, but better. Someone I respect here on the Board was at the same show and was disappointed that Brian didn't smile and engage the audience. I'm sorry I forget about, and don't notice those things. I realize some fans really want that.  Brian may or may not smile at you (but the band will engage), and there will be wonderful music at the show. I guess I don't understand the problem. If you want to see Brian and band, buy a ticket. If you don't, don't buy a ticket. I think that's pretty simple.

Yes, Deb, OR, stop with the complaining and criticism of Brian and if you're into tribute bands, go see myKe luHv's fake BB's and tell me how great it was to not see Brian Wilson and his incredible band. Oh, I forgot, luHv thinks he's a legend too.  Razz

What does it mean that some of the dates are listed "with Nashville Symphony" or other orchestras? Will they have a whole string section on retainer in addition to Brian's full band?

The ones with orchestras are Pet Sounds shows, primarily concerts rescheduled as a result of Brian's surgery last year.

Regarding the shows notated as including an orchestra, it seems pretty self-explanatory. For those particular gigs, a local orchestra will be a part of the show. They're not on retainer as if they're tagging along on the whole tour. It's just a local orchestra added to the show.

I would imagine the BW tour operation still has all the charts from the 2000 PS symphonic shows, and in isolated cases where a local venue/promoter wants to integrate a full orchestra into the show, they can accommodate that.

The only thing I'm not sure about is if the orchestra will only play during the PS set, or during the entire show. I would guess mostly just the PS set, and then maybe a few other bits (I honestly can't remember where the orchestra came in on those 2000 PS shows beyond PS itself and the opening overture bit; the 2000 show I saw was one of the rare ones without an orchestra, and I actually thought PS sounded better without the orchestra honestly).

As a fan of the band I just donít see how anyone could pass up an opportunity to see Brian play. The music is amazing even when performed on a bad night, but Iíve never seen a bad show. Every time Iíve seen Brianís band, they have been phenomenal thru some bad nights on Brianís part, and some good nights too.

Everyone always goes on about the bad nights like this wasnít a guy who spent 3 years in bed due to mental illness. Seeing him when heís ďonĒ just makes that all the better. I saw him pull out a song they had performed just once in rehearsal. Shaky as hell, but really fun. Especially Brian yelling into his mic ďTURN MY PIANO UPĒ and then pounding at his keys to make sure he was loud and in at the front of the mix. Good times.
