Regarding Mike, we've known since late last year that everybody is on board for (or at least nobody is blocking) the "Feel Flows" set. I don't think we need a Mike tour title to tell us that.

As far as Mike touring, last year was a pretty strong indication that Mike *will* play gigs during this pandemic in areas where they'll have his show, and under any guidelines (or lack of guidelines in some cases) required.

Mike's touring band publicizing archival Beach Boys product has always been kind of conflicting and weird for a lot of fans. But he's been doing it for ages, so, so be it.

As for discussing the FF set, we're not children. We don't need to lock the thread discussing a high profile archival boxed set. This isn't a "guess the tracklisting!" thread. It's a thread to discuss it, both before and certainly *after* it comes out. To discuss the lobbying for its release, as well as the actual content once we know what's on it. In what world would there be no point in discussing the set once it comes out? That's what the in-depth discussions *start*. In the meantime, if someone can't handle *not* being given a release date or tracklisting *right now*, then you can always skip the thread.

Mike and co announcing the Feel Flows world tour is the closest thing we've gotten to an official announcement from the band yet. Very promising. I have plans to see the band multiple times this summer, really hoping I can.

Thats something I guess.

Press Release would be nice

This is Mike Love advertising a WORLD TOUR for the boxset. It is more than something - it is confirmation that everyone is 100% onboard with the release of this set in 2021. They can't really go back now, so we're getting the set. This is huge news for any doubters and naysayers. Yes a press release would be phenomenal, but this is confirmation that we will be getting a press release soon (it's already March and 2021 is already flying by...before you know it we'll all be dusting off our CD players and cranking up the hi-fi sets, listening to the music and reading the incredible booklet that will accompany this set).

Ever since Howie gave us the good news (and especially since his last update in November) I've been completely confident we'd be seeing this set. I hope that Mike Love announcing a world tour for the set would be just as good news to everyone else.

edit: as1972, thanks for sharing that! This is truly wonderful to hear.

Makes me wonder if Brian will start doing a show or two to promote this set.

Doesn't help getting the word out that the box set is coming to anyone but the hardcores

Not being negative but now would be a great time to get the promotion machine working

Exactly. This was the point of my previous post. I personally have full confidence this set is coming out and realize that everyone was already on board for set’s release (per Howie’s posts last year). But to those recently doubting this set’s existence and possibility of release, this tour announcement should give everyone 100% confirmation - especially since at least one person was previously doubting the confirmation from Howie in this thread.
_____

Shady, I guess I’m just tired of seeing people being so pessimistic about this release. And to be fair, I’m sure I’ve said some pessimistic things in this very thread so I’m not trying to point fingers. But at this stage, I think we should just be grateful that people in the band are officially acknowledging the set (or the name of the set in an official capacity). Just 6+ months ago we were being told this set’s release wasn’t looking good and it had been shelved. Now Mike Love is announcing a Feel Flows tour. I’m sure soon enough we’ll be getting official word and details about the set itself.

I'm looking forward to when it becomes a "see the tracklisting!" thread.

Followed closely by a "salivate over the tracklisting!" thread.

Then a "hear the tracklisting!" thread."

Then a few more hundred pages of discussion before this thread sinks under the screens horizon, gone but not forgotten, much like the Smile box thread.

As mentioned in the BB tour thread. Surely not a coincidence unless you have something you want to promote.

That Mike is touring a Feel Flows tour really adds nothing to what we knew.


IIRC when "Sunshine Tomorrow" came out, Mike&Bruce did their Wild Honey tour, but didn't really play anything from that album apart from "Darlin'" and "Wild Honey". Possibly "Aren't you glad" a couple of times but I may be wrong on that.
So, while I agree that them calling the tour "Feel Flows" is a good sign for the release of the set, I don't necessarily expect Mike&Bruce doing a lot of songs from it.

Absolutely--this is an epic thread that has wandered like a vine relentlessly in search of that lucky old sun, maneuvering around every impediment, hitting hard at the battles that confronted it, throwing off all the roadblocks stumbling it, flipping itself over and turning into unfolding, enveloping missiles of soul! You don't close down a thread like that...you just let it keep rolling, rolling, rolling on...and when all is finally revealed, when we know every nook and cranny of the material, and we've discussed all of its salient details, then we'll just let it take a long, deep breath of that country air...surrounded by the beauty of the everywhere that will be all around us.

And who knows--Mike & Bruce might just play "Don't Go Near the Water," "Disney Girls," "'Til I Die," "Big Sur," and "All I Wanna Do." And then we'll have world peace...

Well, Mike&Bruce did play "All I wanna do", "Forever" (though with Stamos), "Disney Girle (1957)", and I believe even "Surf's Up" in concert, so who knows. I was just trying to keep the expectations down based on the Wild Honey tour.

I don't believe I've seen a Mike and Bruce Surf's Up (Though the whole touring band did participate in the Fendertones rendition), but 'Til I Die was part of their setlist a while back.

Yes, I forgot about "'Til I die".
I'm not sure they played "Surf's Up". Maybe I mixed it up with the Fendertones' version. But in my mind I somehow seem to remember them doing that song with Jeff Foskett. Again, I could be wrong about that.

Great - I come for box set news and read all this malarky about Mike's touring band.

I thought there are other threads to discuss each of the touring groups.

What are people's thoughts on the timeframe for this?

This is based solely on wishful thinking, but if this is to be a summer release,  we should hopefully hear an official announcement in April. I'm expecting some nice unboxing promo films similar to what was released during the Smile set announcement. Like Smile, I hope we also get some webisodes, accompanied by a trickle of track teases

I'm still hopeful of a May release date, but really June seems a bit more likely.

Given that Mike's Feel Flows tour is in May maybe that points to a May release. I also seem to recall that a May date may have been mentioned a little way back, probably after the Azoff deal was done but before it was publicly announced.

I don't know exactly when or where this naming a tour stuff started. I seriously doubt when Bob Dylan/The Band tour in 1974 they were calling it the Before the Flood tour. It just got called that AFTER the live album bearing that name came out.
I saw Paul Revere and the Raiders at the Tacoma Dome back in 1997, and they were selling shirts calling it the Refuse to Go Away Tour. lol

The Beach Boys' summer '64 tour was titled the "Summer Safari" tour. Maybe they were the first to name a tour?  Smiley

Well, Motown did package tour with multiple groups and solo artists called the Motortown Revue starting in the beginning of the ‘60s. Only thing I can think of that compares.
