Alright, I said I wasn't going to this show, but I found some decent tickets, and it looks like I'll be at this one as well. Grin

I wonder at what point on the tour another one of the remaining few rehearsed songs will appear. My money's on "Salt Lake City".

We're at intermission. They added dance dance dance and Kiss Me Baby to the first set, and dropped Wendy.

I love Wendy, but it wasn't very strong last night. I'd love to see Kiss Me Baby. Playing Dance Dance Dance makes more sense to me than playing Do You Wanna Dance.

I hope they keep Kiss Me Baby to the end of the US leg of their tour.

How is the attendance for tonight's show, sold out like last night?

According to someone who would know.

Seriously, there was a Beach Boys Love You condom?!  Amazing.

LOve that they added KMB.  Wish they had kept Wendy. I would vote off Why Do Fools  Fall in LOve.  Just prefer BB originals in the set over covers I guess....

Show just ended, I'll have the second set list up in a bit. I'd estimate there were 8,500-9,000 in attendance tonight. Looked pretty full.

Alright, the show didn't sell out, and there were some sections in the balcony that were empty or pretty close to empty, but the arena still seemed pretty full. The set list for the second half was pretty much the same as last night, except that they moved Good Vibrations up from the encore into the second set.

Second set:
Add some music
California dreamin
Sloop John B.
WIBN
IJWMDTT
Forever
Sail on sailor
Heroes and Villains
In my room

God only knows
TWGMTR

That's a weird place to put good vibrations..

It's better closing out the show

It's really great that they're mixing the set lists up and moving songs around...keeps things interesting.  I'm surprised they haven't hit autopilot yet.  Just add "California Saga" and we're all golden!

I suspect we'll see things tweaked throughout the run of shows. I bet it keeps Brian engaged, and a new song or so every three-four shows is just about enough to keep the band focused but not frazzled.

Glad to see KMB added. The funny thing was...when I saw the original tour setlist, Add Some Music and Kiss Me Baby were what I thought were two of the three most glaring omissions (and in the case of those two, natural choices for deeper cuts), with Darlin' being the other. At some point, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw that one as well. Sunny Californ-i-a, Good Timin' and Breakaway would be my other guesses in terms of potentials.

Now...it sure would be cool if they pulled a rabbit out of their collective hats...and went even deeper. But, I'm not complaining at all.  That's a helluva setlist as it stands. In effect, another "box set" tour. Who'd of ever thunk it?  Smiley

Suspect we won't hear Darlin' -- none of the original guys can sing it, and they've tried to avoid having the backing band sing leads. More's the pity, because Darian does an astonishing version of the tune.

And I can't figure out why. Both Darian and Cowsill can sing it great! Let one of 'em sing it! It's been a staple in The Beach Boys/Brian/Al band for years, even after Carl passed away. One of the best songs (hits) that they ever did, and they're ignoring it. For now....

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what shes like, and I can feel how right shed be for me. Its weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what shes picking up from me. I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

Even though that song is so iconically attached to Carl, I personally didn't think that would be a deal-breaker. I also think it's one of the songs that Brian's been more comfortable with handling. IMO, it's one of the stronger cuts on Roxy. Smiley

Yeah, the problem is no actual live version sung by Brian has sounded like that.

The Roxy version is a pitch-corrected, empty theater retake taped following the actual shows.

Brian cannot sing the song anymore. Not in tune, at least. It was out of his setlist for years before Darian started doing it.

I agree that those two sound great. But they're trying to avoid backing band leads (I think DWB is the only one), to emphasize the "historic reunion" aspect. And have you seen how crabby people on this board get with the backing band members sing?

Well, duh, that's what the "auto-tune" is for.....lol. <sarcasm> Smiley

And, just as a side-note, I was aware of the touch-ups to Roxy ("Caroline No," etc.). I remember pointing it out to a certain "BE" years ago...back in the day of the PSML. In truth, that debut, experimental studio version of the tune with the 'Mints is wretched, pitch-wise. So...your point is well-taken!

I love "The Little Girl I Once Knew" and "Wendy" but knew they weren't really right for this reunion tour...not exciting enough for a live show with an audience this big.  Glad to see Dance Dance Dance return, and also Kiss Me Baby added.

I've never understood why Bruce has done the lead on "Wendy" since the mid-90s...I bet Mike could easily sing circles around him on this.
