Okay, I saw Brian here in 2005, and I know I found a good parking garage near the theatre to park at. I can't remember where that was.  LOL Anybody know the best place to park?

Interesting that that Billboard article about how they booked the tour mentioned that there were a handfull of venues that the band specifically asked to be booked, and the Greek Theatre was one of them.

Mikie's pre concert ritual:

Tickets? Check
High definition camera with fresh batteries? Check

To the Greek...

Yep, the second "Smile" tour in 2005. As I recall, the turnout was nice. It has a general admission lawn seating area, so it's always hard to tell what constitutes a "sell out." But I recall the reserved seats being filled. I think the show in 2004 at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco seemed a bit more "fancy", and that one seemed to be a hot ticket with people looking to buy tickets at the front of the venue, etc.

The Greek was packed in September of '05.  Brian and the band did the Smile material. That was back when the Tasty Brothers and Taylor Mills and The Stockholm Strings were there and people were even sitting up in the trees watching.  Brian played "Walking Down The Path of Life" and "Love and Mercy" at the end. Just fantastic! Lotta pot smoke in the air that night....

I think we're gonna get something from WILD HONEY. It's been neglected so far. They've had a few days rest. Mike's in charge of the set to some degree and I know he's into the album. Personally, I would prefer "Aren't You Glad" !

SouthBay,

I once spoke to Carl in the 90's about the Boys coming out for an encore and opening up with Country Air.  He loved the idea!!  I still hold out hope that the spirit of Carl will bring Country Air out during this tour.   

  My seat will give me dead on center view of the action! 

I'll be looking for the Smiley fans!  Come and say hello!

Requests for The Greek in order of preference:

Surf's Up (It's OK to dream, eh?)
Darlin'
California Saga
I Can Hear Music

I say drop that new one they tried out in Santa Barbara (it sucks) and replace with one of the aforementioned requests.

Thanks for listening!

I'll change my vote from "Aren't You Glad" to "Country Air" with this new information.

I sent all of the Beach Boys fan letters in 1993 at age 14.  Carl was the only one to respond and sent me an autographed photo.  I hope to feel his presence at the show as well.

Serious.  I can't see how anybody liked that song live. Gotta pick something else to promote the album.  The crowd clapped at the end because it was over! 

C'mon, think of a rousing Darlin' and/or California Saga!  Or even Bugged At My Ol' Man.....

I've got a feeling we'll see Darlin' at some point, it's too obvious a hit to completely exclude from the tour.

Isn't It Time, is probably here to stay. I'd imagine they'll add another one from the new album next week. Probably the one that Al sings...I forget the name now Huh

I have faith we'll get California Saga before the boys leave the state...probably save it for the Hollywood Bowl tho. Darlin' is in my top 5 bb songs, I'm dying to hear that one added!

But they definitely aren't playing Friends, because the kiddie band is doing that one.
