I've seen BW 10 or 12 times, & this was the best yet!  Brian was more lucid, happy, & engaged than I'd ever seen him, & he actually PLAYED that piano in front of him — a lot!  Shocked  For the first time I saw BW with *genuine* smiles — it was truly amazing.  His singing voice was great, relied far less on the tele-prompter, & he was very talkative, & cracked everyone up — especially when he said he didn't wanna play "Sailor," calling the lyrics "sh*tty," & "bull****."  No "Marcella" last night, but "Heroes" brought everyone to their feet for a standing ovation.  Scott asked the audience to get-up & boogie for "Do You Wanna Dance?," then Brian commanded us to "be seated" for "Sloop."  It was a crazy show.  Anyway, here's the setlist:


SET 1:

Do It Again
Dance, Dance, Dance
Girl Don't Tell Me (BW dedicated it to John Lennon)
Then I Kissed Her
Surfer Girl
[Row, Row, Row Your Boat]
In My Room
Salt Lake City
Custom Machine
Soul Searchin'
Desert Drive
Please Let Me Wonder
Don't Worry Baby
I Get Around
Sail On, Sailor
Heroes & Villains [Cantina]
Roll Around Heaven
California Girls

SET 2:

Little Girl I Once Knew
Your Imagination
All Summer Long
Add Some Music To Your Day
Shut Down
Little Deuce Coupe
Do You Wanna Dance?
Sloop John B
Wouldn't It Be Nice?
God Only Knows
Midnight's Another Day
Goin' Home
Southern California
Good Vibrations

ENCORE 1:

Monster Mash
Johnny B. Good
Help Me Rhonda
Barbara Ann
Surfin' USA
Fun, Fun, Fun

ENCORE 2:

Love & Mercy

I had very low expectations & was prepared for the worst because I was told Brian doesn't like these so-called 'greatest hits' type shows, & is only engaged in new material, like TLOS.  But WOW, I was shocked!

I'd be willing to pay extra for a BW show if he'd leave Barbara Ann out. Always a downer to hear that piece of cr*p after all that brilliant music.

If he doesn't like this song they should finally consider not playing it anymore. Play the fairy tale instead. Grin

Piece of crap? It's just a blues song. Do you hate the blues?

I don't know a lot about music theory, but Barbara Ann always sounded like a doo-wop song to me...and yes, it's horrible!

It was pretty packed but not sold out. People were buying tickets right up until showtime, which is a good sign. Last year at the Keswick it DID sell out and there were college kids outside begging folks for tickets.

If people were buying tickets right until show time I'd say it did reach very near sold out. Which is good considering Brian played there little over a year ago.

Wonder why Brian is enjoying this tour so much.

Well, unlike the hits tour last year, he has the full band. That makes a real difference in instrumentation and vocals -- it's fuller. Also, you have to wonder if touring might be a refuge at times for him. He's on the road, and all he really has to do or think about is the night's performance. And let's face it -- if he wants to do something off-the-cuff, like Monster Mash, the band bends over backward to do what he wants.

Sounds like it was an awesome show to see, you're lucky you caught him on a good night! 

I'm not too familiar with his setlist lately, so I have to ask - does he typically perform the Cantina version of Heroes?  I would think that since BWPS, he would do that version.

It is a doo-wop song. And it's great. Unfortunately the current BB-versions (and in fact the Beach Boys from at least the late 70s on) don't do the song justice. The studio version is nice, but check out the original by The Regents. That's very good. Jan&Dean's studio version is nice, too

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

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.

The Beach Boys live doing BA back in the 70's and 80's was just great. They would all line up and do a Rockettes type of routine, which the audience loved. It showed they were really having a great time up there. That made me happy.

Unfortunately or not, "Barbara Ann" was the BB's first Top 10 and highest charting single of the 60's in many countries. I think we should thank Barbara Ann for that. It was their biggest hit in Europe until "Kokomo"!

I'm still thinking about how different Brian's behavior was at that show...  even the guys in the band seemed stunned!  Is it possible his medications have been adjusted or something??

I didn't know about that...  I guess they did that for financial reasons?  Who wasn't on the tour last year?  And why did they decide to do the full band this year?

I'm not sure what you're asking here...  I believe the version they did live is like the one on BWPS.
