Caught the tail end. Matt (heís back) and Al sang nearly all leads from ďAll Summer LongĒ. Brian remained seated while the others took a bow. The band sounded really good.

It was a GH show, but they had a very nice block of some of my favorites in the middle, and one or two surprises ("Let Him Run Wild," with Matt on lead, for one). Brian's vocals are still spotty, but the rest of the band sounded great. Glad I got to catch this one!

Whoa, anyone saved this?  Shocked


EDIT:

It's being played on a post on Brian's facebook account from 5 hours ago. You probably just have to find the post and the video plays. Maybe someone can save it
Does this work? https://www.facebook.com/officialbrianwilson/videos/463354930895324/?comment_id=677043229422775&notif_id=1557047445105874&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic

EDIT 2:

Will try to add the setlist as I skip through the video:

California Girls
Dance, dance, dance
I get around
Shut down
Little deuce coupe
Little Honda
Surfer girl
Salt Lake City
Don't worry baby
Darlin'
Feel flows
Wild honey
Sail on sailor
Do it again
Let him run wild
Wouldn't it be nice
Sloop John B.
God only knows
Good vibrations
All summer long
Help me, Rhonda
Barbara Ann
Surfin' USA
Fun, fun, fun

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

I think itís time for the band to consider taking God Only Knows down a key or two if Brian is going to keep singing it.  Heís so clearly struggling to hit those notes.

I was able to download it. Inbox me if you want me to send it to you.

Did anyone else notice the extreme lack of close-ups of Brian? Even on songs where he was singing lead, they would have a close up of literally every band member but him. I watched the whole concert twice and only saw a couple close-ups (still pretty far away) of Brian, but totally tight shots of Al, Matt (nice to see him back, although I also did like Rob), and everyone else. Kinda strange. Was this at the insistence of the producers because of Brian's, how should I put this, sometimes somber appearance? Did someone deem that he was having an "off" night or something?

I love Brian, but oh man, his vocals were all over the place. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the show. I thoroughly did, and I'll probably watch it again a million times. The band is ON FIRE here!! Matt absolutely shines on Let Him Run Wild. Al, of all places, totally rocked on Shut Down, Darian sounded great on Darlin, I love Nicky Wonder's Fender Bass on Dance Dance Dance.

This show overwhelmed me with bitter-sweetness, something I've felt every time I've seen Brian in person, but nothing has ever compared to the feeling I got from watching this video. The band is amazing. The music is amazing. Happy crowd. That was all great, but to hear Brian's voice cracking on every line of God Only Knows just hurts. Surely, like someone has already mentioned, many of these songs keys (and maybe tempos) should be adjusted for Bri. I know Brian has never really been comfortable on stage, like someone like Mike Love, but I haven't seen him *this uncomfortable* since 1981 or immediate-post Landy years. In shots where he can be seen, He looks genuinely tense and unhappy. I know there's not much he can do if he already committed to doing a show and is having an ""off" night. He doesn't want to retire, so this is his job. I just wish accommodations could be made, musical or otherwise, to ensure that Brian is having a nice time. I know he as a nice chair he loves backstage, why not bring it out to the piano ??  LOL LOL I know that sounds goofy, but Dave Grohl had a fricken guitar throne!!! If it made Bri comfortable, then great! Anything like that to make him happier. He certainly didn't look happy last night.

I Don't mean to be too much of a downer. I loved the show. I'm thankful that Brian is still performing.

Al seems to be the band leader now. He sounds great and his vocals are really up front on most songs.

Brian looked very tired and seems to be struggling for air which is easy to understand considering his health, age and difficulty of songs to sing. Not sure where he goes from here but hope he has better nights   Sad

That was painful to listen to. The band was great and Al sounded terrific. I was never a big Blondie fan and this did not help - he sounded drunk. Brian sounded terrible. I got used to the shouty Brian, but now he has a shouty, syncopated, out of breath sound. I could forgive it, if he was having fun, but he looks absolutely miserable.

I really wish someone else would sing GOK. The vocal range is too great for Brian.
I know it's one of if not the most "beloved" of his songs, but he didn't sing it on the recording or the live shows up thru the 90s.
I couldn't bear to listen to it last night. I put my tablet on "mute" for that song.

Yes.....noticed. Possibly a condition of recording a live gig. Dylan had something similar at Desert Trip a few years ago. The thing is doing so just accentuated the fact there is a problem IMO.

For what it's worth, the people running the telecast didn't have much of a sense of who was singing lead at any given time.

He did have some good moments too. The bridge on WIBN for one . Do It again too . I donít think itís possible for him to play a show without Alan at this point in time.  I think Brian feels comfortable having Al run things though .

I don't think anyone would blame Brian for packing it in on the live shows.  He doesn't owe us anything.  I love him but it hurts to see him struggling to sing like that.  Even when he sounds okay, he sounds like he's straining.  I know people have worried about Brian doing concerts for years now but I've seen him and the band about five or six times since the 2012 Beach Boys tour and the deterioration of his voice and his physical presence is pretty staggering.

I also noticed that relationship between Al and Brian and agree that Brian is depending on Al. During one song Al said something along the lines of "this next part is yours, Brian" then Brian sang.

i liked when blondie thanked brian and al for "bringing him to this country 50 yrs ago"- I didn't really realise that but i guess thats accurate, they probably helped him come here like  or were instrumental in it.  Brian did miss a lot of lines and looked even less animated than usual.  A brian highlight for me was Salt Lake City, a suprise.  Worst moment of the night Huh anyone?   Darians lead on "Darlin'"- wasnt into it dawg.

Regarding Brian, I hope he doesn't sing because of an obligation that he has to sing his songs. His presence enough, overseeing the performance of his songs by his extremely talented touring band is more than enough for the average fan. For instance, Roger Waters doesn't really sing on many of his songs either, apart from playing some bass and doing some backup vocals.

I just hope that he realises that no fan would ever feel disappointed with his decision to sing or not sing, that's all.
