"California Saga"

"Friends" w/ all the kids (California Saga) on stage---
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoaHe-MD4-4&feature=youtu.be

"All This Is That" - the only song where both the parents and kids shared the stage together and sung.

"Marcella"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiMEFx5dZGw&feature=youtu.be



One of my favorite parts of this tour is listening to the entire place erupt during "Help Me, Rhonda."  Even when your seat it up front you can hear this mass group singing behind you and it's pretty awesome.  Last night my seat was further back and I wanted to capture the magic that spreads throughout the crowd when this song is played.  I didn't focus on the band but more on the crowd...it was pretty amazing to watch (and hear) a full capacity Hollywood Bowl standing, dancing and singing along with Al and the guys.  It was a great moment:


"Help Me Rhonda"

I am contemplating going to see if I can get a ticket from someone who is selling.  Went to Chula Vista and Indio last week, and Irvine tomorrow.  Never bought a ticket to this show because I'm not a huge fan of the venue, but hmmmm....well, we'll see.

I'm basically stuck in an endless loop of "So when should I leave? Will that be enough time to get there? Is that too early? What about traffic? I should do the shuttle. Should I do the shuttle? I'll do the shuttle."

I'm guessing we'll get hit with "Friends" tonight! This more than makes up for Stamos content.

spent an hour yesterday chatting with h-bowl and ticketmasters to try to get a bus ticket from Pasadena--sold out or at least not for sale

taking no chances: will leave from East side of LA to Hollywood and highland and will take the shuttle at 6.

I soooo wish I could be there for the big show at the H-Bowl, but, y'know being a new father living on the other side of the continent kind of puts the kibosh on that!

The historic nature of this show is just through the roof, and if the band pulls out all the stops and performs a rip-roaring set, I happen to think an official release should be in order.

Anyway, enjoy folks! (...and lotsa updates/pics/vids/audio)

Yo yo, the craigster here. I just got back from the show and walked in the door!... I'm lucky because I am staying just down the street so I avoided traffic by walking home. Anyways just a few quick notes. The show was overall great. I wore my "Keep It Clean With Al Jardine" shirt. The obvious highlight was when california saga joined the band on the stage. they sang "friends" by themselves, which sounded amazing. The Jardines were really getting into it. Then they sang "All this is that" with the band, which was my highlight, Justyn Wilson and Matt Jardine sang Carl's parts. It was truly superb.

The Good: they played "california saga", added "the ballad of old betsy" and kept deep cut classics such as "marcella" and "this whole world". Also, I couldn't hear ANY autotune or whatever on Brian's vocals. Dave sounded great on his solos. Al, Mike, Bruce were top notch. Esp Disney girls.

The Bad: For whatever reason, the crowd took a while to get into it, and was kinda "meh" about any deep tracks and the california saga family reunions. I'm sure people appreciated it, but they weren't really going off and clapping super loudly for Brian's solos or "Heroes or Villians" or getting up and dancing until the end. Al kept saying "don't sit back down yet!". Brian had a decent night, but there wasnt a whole lot of banter between him and the rest of the band compared to what i've heard from previous shows.

Overall, amazing wonderful experience. I'll try to post some videos if they turn out ok.

Thanks for your report Craig.

Interesting that CA SAGA didn't do their own set but joined the Beach Boys.    Did each of the kids get an introduction?

I wish they had done This Whole World in Berkeley.

The crowd at Berkeley was very upbeat and rocking with the BOYS, especially during the second half..





Title: Re: Show 24: Hollywood Bowl - Hollywood, CA 6/2/12
Post by: Craig Feldspar on June 02, 2012, 11:59:42 PM
yeah, they introduced each kid. The audience freaked out for the Wilson girls, of course. I think that California Saga is going to do a full set tomorrow night. (with "till I die", supposedly... grr I wish they had played that) Another thing different tonight is that they played the tributes one after the other. Also there was kind of a "mini Pet Sounds" set in the second half in this order: "Sloop John B", "Wouldn't It be Nice" and then "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times". Sorry I don't have a full setlist.

The crowd was fine, I just expected them to be more into it.  Besides the really hardcore fans, the majority of the people were basically asleep or talking through "add some music" and "california saga: california". Their loss though, cuz I had a GREAT time.

This is exactly how I felt when I saw one of Brian's Smile shows there...I was in the middle section and was totally bugged by all the people talking.  This was a big factor in my decision to pass on this show (but to say yes to 3 others!)

Craig,

As long as you enjoyed the show.  Thanks for the kids intro info.   Was Billy H playing an instrument?  

mini Pet Sounds" set in the second half in this order: "Sloop John B", "Wouldn't It be Nice" and then "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times".- It was done this way in Berkeley too.   Also the tributes were back to back with Forever followed by God Only Knows.

You see any celebrities in the crowd??

It was an amazing night! California Saga was great. I agree with all the above statements too - Brian didn't really say anything at all to the crowd. Mike kept saying "call Amazon and order the album" which a lot of the people under the age of 50 found hilarious.

The new songs sounded great. People were really into "isn't it nice". The kids sounded great on "Friends".

Most of the crowd was into it, with the exception of the shmucks in the Hawaiian shirts behind me who talked through every song (unless they knew the chorus, when they screamed it off key) or the dude next to me who was yawning and checking Facebook the whole time.

Post by: Craig Feldspar on June 03, 2012, 12:19:02 AM
Actually funny almost celebrity story. This one older guy in the box next to us was getting really drunk and shouting "PLAYYYY KOKOMOO!!!!!" from the beginning of act one. His friends started talking to us and told us that he was Deepak Chopra and it was his 62nd birthday. (i'm 26 so I dont really know who that is) I was about to film him being wasted and sell it to TMZ, except just now when I got back I looked in wikipedia and found out that he wasn't Deepak at all and the real Deepak's birthday was in October. Guess I should have told the liar and his friends to be quiet.

LOL about Mike telling us to call Amazon. Can you even order over the phone?

I didn't see Billy H playing during california saga, as the BB band backed them up. I'm sure he was there, I was just distracted.

also, this is the BEST backing band i've seen with the band. I've seen Brian and the Mike and Bruce show but this one really nailed everything. The rhythm section was fantastic! all the grooves were real tight.

Also there was a weird music video that played during "thats why god made the radio" of kids in leather jackets and girls in bikinis that somehow ran into the modern day Beach Boys at a party. It was really low budget and I don't know if it was shown earlier in the tour but it was strange. Is this the official music video?

Awesome, awesome show.  I thought Brian was really on.  He pretty much nailed all his leads was generally really animated.  He was rocking the f.uck out during "Marcella".  He even brought out an awesome growl for "Sail on Sailor" too.

I was really meh about the whole California Saga thing on paper, but their vocal blend was awesome and having "Friends" in the set was just another great drop in the already generous deep-cuts bucket.  Their two songs were highlights for sure.

Really glad I'm seeing tomorrow night as well.

Did not see Billy or Rob with California Saga.  They sounded good, I wish they did a proper opening set instead of just two songs.  I got a little choked up seeing Justyn singing Carl's parts on "All This Is That"

Who was the guy that came out and played accordion for one song, standing between Scott and Darian??

Great, great show, as most have already said.  Agreed that the crowd was a bit lackluster, though that seemed to pick up near the latter half of the show when they did "California Girls".  I can't complain about the set list.  It covered just about everything you could ask for.  I might have switched up the order on some of the songs a bit, as sometimes it seemed when they got some momentum going, it'd dissipate (kicking ass on the car songs, then going straight to intermission.  Playing some of the more uptempo stuff at the end, but then going into less interesting covers, etc.), but it was really well done.

The vocals were great, though I thought Brian was a little rough at first, though I saw him signal during "This Whole World" that he couldn't hear himself, but he came on strong in the second half.  I thought the mix left a bit to be desired, with the levels (particularly on the vocals) being pretty inconsistent at times.

Overall, though, I had a great time.  It was a great place to be and I'm glad I can say I was able to see my favorite band.  I'm really happy for them and how they're going about this.  It's just all very tasteful and well done.  They're kicking ass.

"Friends" w/ all the kids (California Saga) on stage---this one is currently uploading but I'll still put the link here.  I'm going to bed and will leave the computer running.  The link should be active with the video an hour from now.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48Bpqf76N6g&feature=youtu.be

"All This Is That" - the only song where both the parents and kids shared the stage together and sung.  I think I heard Justyn Wilson fill in for Carl's parts--very lovely.  This one is on the queue but will only start uploading after "Friends" (above) is finished.  So it won't be up for about 2 hours or so.  I'll be very much asleep at that time so please, somebody feel free to post the link of it when it's up.  Just check my channel from the above videos and it should be there---the most recent, latest video.


Sorry for the very-far quality.  Okay seats....I switched from stage to video screen for better viewing.  Hope it'll suffice..

An incredibly great concert!  Easily one of the best I've ever attended.  (Then again, second row seats just a few feet from the stage, in the midst of hard core fans, certainly enhanced the experience.)  Marilyn told me California Saga will be opening tomorrow night's show in Irvine with a six song set.

Here's the Hollywood Bowl setlist along with a few iPhone photos.

I think Justyn's (?) Carl part was a little shaky. Darian does a killer singing on that. But I guess with a little practice it will go down better.
Very cool idea !

And Brian also seems really into it and happy.



BTW remember when Matt sang that song in the 90s?

It was an incredible show.  The opening group of songs was amazing.  I think David Marks sang lead on Hawaii?

The only downer for me was Brian Wilson's lead vocals, which were horrible.  Every time he sang a lead in the first part of the song I cringed.  The second half was a little better, but not much.

I'm fairly sure that on Isn't It Time that Brian's lead vocal starting the song was pre-recorded.  There is no way he sounded as poorly as he did on the other songs and sounded polished for Isn't It time.

The Hollywood Bowl was packed to the rafters, as a figure of speech.  The corwd was into the show, but really got heated starting with Wouldn't It be Nice, when it seemed like everyone stood up.

The stars of the show were Mike Love and Al Jardine.  Mike Love can still do it and do it well, and Al's voice is tremendous.  You cannot say enough about the backing band in producing music and vocals that made this the best Beach Boys show I have seen since 1976.

I'm fairly sure that on Isn't It Time that Brian's lead vocal starting the song was pre-recorded.  There is no way he sounded as poorly as he did on the other songs and sounded polished for Isn't It time.



I doubt it, for whatever reason Brian appears to like singing the new stuff over the old stuff..

It was like that for the Gershwin tour, he was on fire for those songs then went back to auto pilot for the greatest hits (which were still wonderful btw)

Brian should be able to sing songs recorded in the past year with more proficiency than songs recorded 4 decades ago.

It has nothing to do with preferring the new over the old, Brian Wilson isn't up to singing lead vocals in a concert.  When they cover his vocal with other voices it sounds palatable, but when it's pure Brian it's more than rough.  There is no way Brian was singing the lead to Isn't It time live last night.  If someone has a video, I hope they post it.

Urbanite,

Brian WAS singing Isn't It Time (with Jeff doubling) and NO other help (cheating) last night.  I had very close seats at the bowl and I also heard Brian sing the song 3 times the day before in Berkeley (twice at soundcheck and once at the show - I was in the 5th row).  I agree that Brian has his fair share of dodgy vocals and that Isn't It Time sounded very very good (almost suspicious even).  But, there was no funny business going on there, just a very rehearsed Brian delivering a great performance which does happen from time to time.

I loved both shows.  Going to Irvine tonight too.  The backing band is phenomenal and I have loved MANY moments from each of the principal BBs, but the standout has been Al for me.  Damn he sounds good.

I will try to formulate more complete and better reviews of each show later but I need breakfast by the ocean.  Life is hard...

I saw a whole bunch of celebs at the show last night.  Priscilla Presley (who was sitting with Jerry Schilling), Paul Stanley (Kiss) and wife, Billy Idol, Jackson Browne.  Pretty cool and they were all loving the show.  Jerry (who was two garden boxes behind me) looked quite emotional at several points with his hands over his face.  Priscilla still looks hot.  I mean really hot.  Both of Carl's sons were there too (only one was on stage singing though...)

Also, on the celeb front I went to the rainbow room on Sunset after the show for a celebratory libation, and ran into Sebastian Bach, Taylor Hawkins, and my friend was very fascinated that Ron Jeremy (adult movie star) was there.  Of course I had no idea who he was...

The accordion player for Wouldn't it Be Nice was none other than BB regular  and Fosketty friend Gary Griffin.  Nice to have an accordion on that song.

(I noticed BW was getting into 'All This is That' in Berkeley as well ... seems like he perks up for some of the obscure songs. Maybe we're inventing all of these problems, and in reality, he's just bored !)

Man this whole reunion thing goes from great to greater. The Cal Saga band addition is beyond question. Man that All This Is That clip is mind blowing. Just check at 3.30 and watch Justyn as he lifts his head and eyes - scary resemblance.

So good to hear Justyn take his father's part on ATIT ... maybe let Matt J do the Jai Guru's instead of Foskett.

Rich P.,

I was sitting fairly close, although not as close as you.  I'll have to respectfully disagree with you, that the vocal by Brian on Please Let Me Wonder, Heroes and Villains and I Just Wasn't made for These Times, could not be miraculously improved in the same show to sound so good, like it was the record, for Isn't It Time.  My take, the group and Capitol want to sell this record and don't want a bad impression caused by Brian to screw things up.  So they add a studio vocal for a short portion of one song during a live performance.

I have to been Brian solo shows before, once at the Wiltern Theatre once at the Hollywood Bowl, and the Roxy, a number of years ago.  His vocals were passable at times amd horrible at others.  I stopped going to the shows   because it was difficult to listen to.  I have never been to a Mike and Bruce show.  Last night, with the exception I noted, was amazing.

Note to Tony, you can see Jeff pass the Jai Gurus over to Matt at the beginning of that part of the song. That's definitely Matt's voice singing them at the end.

It was very, very nice to see Justyn take Carl's part -- wonderful salute to his Dad. He doesn't sound exactly like Carl, but there are definitely moments where it's close.

I'm so glad everyone is enjoying the videos--it's my pleasure to share them! :)

I'm uploading just a few more from last night.  Nothing as earth-shattering as the first three, of course.  First up is a great rocking version of...

"Marcella"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiMEFx5dZGw&feature=youtu.be



One of my favorite parts of this tour is listening to the entire place erupt during "Help Me, Rhonda."  Even when your seat it up front you can hear this mass group singing behind you and it's pretty awesome.  Last night my seat was further back and I wanted to capture the magic that spreads throughout the crowd when this song is played.  I didn't focus on the band but more on the crowd...it was pretty amazing to watch (and hear) a full capacity Hollywood Bowl standing, dancing and singing along with Al and the guys.  It was a great moment:

professor was there at the bowl, but I am busy heading to Irvine now. Short notes:

they filmed the heck out of last night's show, and I wander if this was to get PBS and DVD footage that they had failed to get in St. Augustine.  Recall that the PBS special is delayed a month. Last night was a good one to film. Children singing those 2 songs was a high point.  

Mike is weak on Kokomo.  Dave still not nailing solo on "Do you want to dance" or a sound glitch?  I do not love that song.

TWGMTR still wanders a bit.  Isn't it time was spectacular.

all in all 9.8 out of 10.  I can live without Cotton fields--hope that is not harsh.

welcome home, BB! David is my fav!

off to the 5 freeway.

Went to Cricket and Hollywood bowl. Sat about halfway back at HB and 2nd row center at Cricket. Truly idfferent experiences. Up close, you can't hear which songs the crowd really gets into. Furthur back and you can hear the place explode when ML says, "Lets crank the hotrods up just one more time". Everyone loved those songs, 409, Shutdown, etc. No lack of enthusiasm there.

I licked the song selection better at HB and hearing BW sing Sail On Sailor rather than Ahmba waqs worth the price of admission.

 BTW the Park and ride from Torrance sucked. Got there at 545 left the lot at 720 arrived at 805. Missed the first few mintues of the show. Fair warning for anyone ever thinking of using the Park and Ride in the future.

The last four or five times I've gone to the Bowl, I've used the park & ride from Lakewood and considered it a great convenience, but last night was a pretty different experience.  I don't know if it was the fact that it was a totally sold out show or that audience trending older led to a much higher percentage of people using park & ride, but it was just a madhouse.  It seemed like more people than the system could handle. 

Usually there's only 2 or 3 buses leaving from Lakewood, but there must have been like 20 last night.

Wooow!!!........Is that model of the bowl some new BB50 merchandise?



Oh, heres something. A family member went to the show (had a great time) and asked about the filming. The tech guy said it was for a live feed to Japan. May have been a kiss-off to a live DVD perhaps?

“Does that bother you when I say ‘The Great Mike Love!’ or is that cool?” Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson asks his cousin, frontman Mike Love. Laughter ensues, Love assures him it’s OK and seconds later the band’s five surviving members launch into the beautiful “Add Some Music to Your Day.”


UGH!  I was talking to the guy next to me during that part and I missed that...what a great moment!

The show gets good reviews. That's fantastic promotion. Hope they'll be as good on Leno the day after tomorrow

Prepare to be disapointed re Leno. As was touched on after the Fallon show, Leno will have the usual format, one song (Isn't It Time' I suspect) and possible quicky interview.

Suggested remedy? Rewatch Fallon to calm down! :lol

Yeah I'm pretty sure she's like 16

Yeah i was kinda like wtf, is this his granddaughter or what.

Mike's current wife is only in her 50s I think, a 16 year old daughter makes perfect sense.

Yeah dude, i totally know everything about Mike Love's personal life, this is totally normal and makes total sense.

just got back from spending all weekend in LA.  I willpost some pictures tomorrow. Briefly. both shows were unbelievable.  For me, the Bowl was better as i did the VIP there. My wife and I were in the 2d row, literally less than 10 feet from the stage.The only bother I had was when the medis photogtraphers would crawl  by.  During the meet and greet, I mentioned to Al how I loved his vocal on FTTBA.  He said "thanks", and then, "what was it"? I said"From There to Back Again". He said, "oh, thanks a lot".  That led to a conversation with Fosket. He said to me, "that's such a great song, isn't it?' He was very friendly and talked for a couple of minutes. JUst outside the backstage area, my wife met Carnie, which she was thrilled about.   I took a picture with Matt Jardine and Kevin Love.  I also met Tony Asher, who was very gracious  when I thanked him for his lyrics on PS (""No, thank you.").  

At the Irvine show, we sat just a few rows in front of Jonah Wilson and Annie and what appeared to be their extended family.  Justyn came out and sat for the BB's show after the Cal Saga set.  I did catch their reaction during the Carl tribute. They smiled and watched the screen like the rest of us. At the Bowl, Melinda and their kids were stting just behind us. I thought it was interesting that she and their kids (the oldest are teens now)were up and dancing just like everybody else. Brian's kids were also wearing the sold out Hollywood Bowl t-shirts made special  for the night.  I thought that was pretty cool too.

All in all a great weekend.

Sidenote: What is with Jeff doing that walk across the stage thing during Marcella? He did that in Berkeley too. Is it to prove that Brian is singing alone or is he just.... dancing?

he also did it at the pittsburgh show ..not expecting that so i thought it was quite funny

Bwahahaha!  Perfect!

Hi, I noticed that in this thread there was some minor dissagreement over the quality of Brians singing.

I personally don't care one way or the other. Brians done a lifetime of superb singing, enough to satisfy me.

BUT, I'm wondering if anyone here could explain what is going on between 2:05 - 2:10 in this close-up of Brian and PLMW, at the Raleigh show.

Foskett doesn't really sound like Brian, tonally, so I hope you don't suggest that it's Jeff shadowing Brian. I'd have a hard time believing that.

Anyway, it's worth examining.

Yeah, there was a disagreement about the Cabin Essence lyrics and it got a little out of hand.
