Wow, is this the first show where we possibly have no one from the board attending?

Another great show in Albuquerque on a perfect summer night!  The band was tight and harmonies were amazing!  I saw them at Jazz Fest and thought they were great, but was bummed that the set list cut out all the album gems and was basically the Mike & Bruce hits and surfin and car songs.  Not so now.  It was so great to hear PLEASE LET ME WONDER, KISS ME BABY, ALL THIS IS THAT, etc.  I was praying for a month that THIS WHOLE WORLD would return, but that didn't happen.  Also missing was COTTONFIELDS (a standout at Jazz Fest), OUR PRAYER, GOOD TIMIN, MARCELLA, etc.  At Jazz Fest, I thought Al and David stole the show, but this show was perfectly balanced with everyone shining. Bruce was great on DISNEY GIRLS. Al rocked THEN I KISSED HER. Darian was perfect on DARLIN and DON'T WORRY BABY with Jeff was spot on. Scott was excellent on BETSY, not something I was expecting or looking forward to.  Brian was hesitant on set one, but was engaged and sparkling in set 2. He was gesturing and seemed to be having a good time.  His vocals were great on HEROES, and SAIL ON SAILOR was the best I have ever heard him do!  The highlight of the show. I GUESS I JUST WASN'T MADE FOR THESE TIMES was excellent, too.  THAT'S WHY GOD MADE THE RADIO stood out, as did FOOLS, .  Even songs I can't stand like BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL, GETCHA BACK, AND STILL CRUISIN were fun.  There was a tech glitch on GOD ONLY KNOWS. No Carl vocal or video appeared, so Bruce quickly jumped in and then Brian took over the lead. All in all an amazing night of music.  We are bless to be able to be here to see this go down so beautifully...

Oh Brian
Thou Art In Hawthorne,
Harmonied Be Thy name
Your Kingdom Come,
Your Steak Well Done,
On Stage As It Is In Studio,
Give Us This Day, Our Shortenin' Bread
And Forgive Us Our Bootlegs,
As We Also Have Forgiven Our Wife And Managers,
And Lead Us Not Into Kokomo,
But Deliver Us From Mike Love.
Amen.  ---hypehat

No Cottonfields anymore?? What a shame, that was a highlight. You figure they bring that back in Europe though. Like I said before Mike's got Al on a strict quota of lead vocals it seems, you get Come Go With Me you lose Cottonfields. I'm not impressed with the version of Still Crusin they are doing based on youtube, but it could sound better being there. Glad to see Darlin' and Wendy are back!

I can't remember, but I think at the PNC Bank Arts Center show they played Cotton Fields and Come Go With Me.

Yeah, at this point, I'd say we won't see "Our Prayer" until maybe the Europe shows. I must've done something right in a past life to be at one of the, what, two or three shows they played it.

They are still swapping songs almost every night. Al sang both Cottonfields and Come Go With Me in Milwaukee July 1st. Even though some of us miss some tunes we might like over others, this set list is like none other by any band ever. By the time the tour is really through, how many DIFFERENT songs will they have played live? I don't think anyone has ever done this during a tour spanning only a few months.

Or Dylan. As recently as three-four years ago he was playing up to 110-120 different songs each year. The BBs would have to double the number of tunes they've performed in concert to reach that.

Well, at least 2 of us were there. Been a while since I posted (although I read this board daily), but I just had to echo what a great show this was. The solo Brian tours had kind of gotten me spoiled (and lazy) and I guess that I kind of figured more of the same last night...but I could not have been more wrong. As good as those earlier solo tours were, the concert Friday night blew them away. The guys sounded awesome and the band was tight and rocking. Azmo had a pretty good synopsis of what transpired, but let me add my own personal experiences. First off, got great tickets...in row 2 right in the middle. Does anyone know if they had a "meet and greet" at this show? When we bought our tickets they were sold out, although we could not find anyone who had actually been at the meet and greet, despite being up close. Anyway, bought the obligatory t-shirt to go along with my Hollywood Bowl 2012 T-shirt along with one of the yellow ones for my wife. Got a signed Postcards From California CD from Al, another BeachBoys 50 cap and some other stuff we did not have the chance to get in LA. The best was an 8x10 signed photo from the band that I was hoping for. The crowd was great and there was a lot of love in the place. And what a great program, eh? Got another to have framed alongside some other stuff.

Coolest thing was I guess, at intermission, we started seeing people go up to the stage. That was are cue, so we spent the rest of the show right up against the stage. Made direct eye contact with everybody (Al told us "Thank you" when I yelled at him) and all of the other fanboy stuff (I won't bore you). Except for mentioning God....I mean, Brian. We had been yelling support for him throughout the night...starting when he was waiting in the wings at stage right ...just like everyone else has described at the shows. Well, Brian moves in mysterious way ( totally ignoring us). That is, until he strapped on the bass in the end. He gave us the biggest smile (and when I yelled and pointed to him) did so again. Laugh if you want, but I love him for that. It made for a perfect night. His music might have saved my life at a certain point a few years ago. This was certainly a high point for me personally, and a "greatest hit"....as I know that he does not do those things often.

Anyway, this was my first Beach Boys show with Brian in the band. Always hated Mike Love for his battles with Brian. I have done a 180 since the show. Yeah, Mike is somewhat smarmy in the videos, but onstage it all clicks. Guaranteed, he is one of the best 2 frontmen in the business (Jagger being the other). He had everyone charmed (especially the girls who were half his age). We all got to shake that hand or bump fists with him, but he held on to this thirty-something blond's hand a little longer thatn anyone else, and remarked, "I'll bet you were trying to take one of those diamonds from me!" (meaning one of the many rings on his fingers). Good stuff.

One more thing to add to the show. A girl jumped up on stage at the end. As a security person rushed out to get her, Mike stuck his arm out and montioned "no". He and Al then proceeded to give her autographs. She was still with them when a security guard made us leave from the front of the stage (with people imploring the stage crew for set lists and Brian's water bottle).

An amazing night. ...much better than the noseblood seats in Cali (though the family stuff was incredible!).

As Beach Boys fans, what has transpired this year (along with the album) should be considered nothing less than a miracle. Seeing Brian complete "God Only Knows" when the video failed seemed appropriate somehow.

Maybe God didn't invent the radio, but he sure made the Beach Boys a spiritual (Americana) experience (at least for me).

Dennis and Carl are sure to be tuning in.

What do these new $50 signed 8x10's look like?  I guess the $100 signed programs weren't selling enough?

The 8x10 is very high quality and clearly not a print. The only thing that might be better would be a signed album. I never saw the signed program, but would have loved one of those as well. The signed CD is (IMHO) too small, however.

I'll try and post some pics later.

OK. Dylan and the Dead. I'm not a fan of either, so no I was not aware anyone had ever had this large of a set list in this short a period of time. It is anything but the norm. My point is people keep complaining about a song that's dropped or substituted here or there and seem to have no clue that over the course of the BB's 50 years they have never done a show that matched this. We have never been treated to a nearly 50 song set.

What I meant was, the autographs are clearly not a print of originals. They were written directly on the photo we bought. I was really impressed with it. Except for Marks, I have all their autos on various albums (mainly Brians) but --believe it or not, I think this one is my favorite. A MUST buy if you see the show.....and a lot better deal than the CDs....

Very nice review Beach Bum....looks like you got the first stage rushers of the tour! 

Man, I was tentative early, as that kind of thing did not get reported about in other shows. But at intermission, we decided it was time. The area around the stage pretty much filled up after that and nobody hassled us. Glad that I did, although we missed most of the video because we were focused on the players. My wife was right next to a speaker, and she is still talking way too loud! The Bowl was really nice but we were in the very back and I just didn't come away with the same feeling. This time, I really got it. These guys really mean it, even after 50 years. It may never happen again, but that might be a good thing. The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and 2 years ago we all would have accepted such a grand finale.

My main revelation? Brian is WAY MORE cognizant and together than I ever would have thought. He just does things the BRIAN way. He is happy....I am convinced of that. He just doesn't display it in the ways most of us would. Al still gets the short end of the stick tho....not sure what is up with that. Mike made me a fan...and I would have bet money before against that. He really loves this band.

So do I.

Will get pictures up soon....I promise.
