Title: Show 31: Susquahanna Bank Center - 6/16/12 - Camden, NJ (Philadelphia area)
Post by: PongHit on June 12, 2012, 07:53:35 PM

Venue is a mile from my house (in Philadelphia), I'll be in the FRONT ROW! And hopefully taking photos, recording audio/video. Let's get this party started.

I'll be there. I have the VIP package and will be sitting somewhere between rows 3 and 5.

VIP?  So you get to see sound-check, and do the photo thing? 

If you'd like to find/meet me, I'll be the only guy in the front row not wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

Just hoping we aren't treated like cattle once we're in there. I am not quite as excited about doing this as I was when I first purchased the ticket. I am looking forward to the show and meeting you and anyone else attending the concert.

You mean the VIP stuff, or the concert itself?  Those meet & greet things hold ZERO appeal to me. 

I saw BW/SMILE from the front row, and that was cool.

The VIP stuff! After what I have been reading here, I am not too thrilled to be led around like cattle. Had I known this ahead of time I would not have bothered purchasing the package. I will most definitely enjoy the seat and concert, though. 3 days to go. :)

I'll be there. Never been before - but how well will I be able to see them (first row in Section 204)?
And...if it's not a sellout, is the security lax enough that a group of three could sneak up closer?  ::)

I've got some nose bleed seats but would love to meet up with anyone...my only BB/BW shirts are on display so I don't wear it...so I'll prolly be wearing an Abbey Road shirt but instead of the Beatles, it has some Star Wars characters as Lego's walking across...
I'm honestly not too pumped about the merch unless it's changed since the album came out...the BBstore website hasn't changed much...I was thinking of buying a tour booklet...I have the BWPS tour booklet, doesn't it hold a flame up to that one? Any other merch changes?
I thought I read where there's some b-leggers selling some fake (but much better) BB shirts out in the parking lot...has this been happening more often? Or just that one show? Is there a time or place we could meet up early? There's nothing like talking to another obsessive fan who holds the same passion for Brian Wilson as I do...I know I just can't stop talking to him or her. I'd prefer if the place we met up was near the concert hall, don't wannna be late.

I didn't see anything about this for Saturday night, are you sure it will be running?
Seems safer than parking in Camden - are tickets needed in advance for the ferry?

I'm going to scope-out the details by tomorrow afternoon since I live near by. It doesn't mention Saturday specifically, but:

"The Ferry season runs Saturday and Sunday only in May and September with daily service between Memorial Day and Labor Day. There's even express service for Susquehanna Bank Center events, with ferry service available 30 minutes after events end."

I'm too lazy at the moment to check the count, but since they've added Darlin' and Getcha Back in the last couple of nights...that puts them at over 50 songs performed on this tour.  Anybody know the number off the top of their head?  Impressive, regardless.

Good Vibrations
California Girls
All Summer Long
Help Me Rhonda
Rock and Roll Music

Kokomo
Barbara Ann
Fun Fun Fun

I might have missed a few; please correct me if necessary. I did not take notes as I was too busy whooping, yelling "I LOVE YOU (insert member here)!!!11oneone", and singing along.

This tour needs to be seen. Anyone who calls him or herself a Beach Boys fan that does not see this tour is missing out. Seriously. This is a great thing. The band is ON FIRE. They are firing on all cylinders. Brian sounded good, David sang Getcha Back (he had a bit of trouble with the lyrics), Marcella kicked SO MUCH ASS (my "YESSSSSS!!!" could probably be heard for miles), All This Is That was transcendent, Al, Al, and more Al (he sounds GREAT!), Bruce was so animated, Michael's stage banter was legitimately hilarious.

I teared up a bit during Forever and God Only Knows. Michael's introduction was tasteful and respectful.

If you haven't bought tickets yet GET OFF OF YOUR ASS RIGHT NOW and f***ing BUY THEM. Now. I am not kidding. SEE THIS TOUR. Seriously. You, reading this post who hasn't bought a ticket. BUY ONE. NOW.

Again, bolded, italicized, underlined, striked-through, glowed, shadowed, marquee'd, and BLOWN UP IN LARGE PRINT -

SEE THIS TOUR.

EDIT - Added a few more songs that originally eluded me, I believe I have the entire song list, but not the correct order. Will write a more balanced report tomorrow.

Just got back. I have mixed feelings about this show - not because of the boys' performance. It really does matter where you sit - I was in section 204 and was surrounded by a few assholes (one was really drunk), the sound system wasnt loud enough during the first set, and i couldnt see faces (besides the jumbo tron).
Second set rocked.

I walked in the front section of 204, I was in row L of 204 and some douche yelled "Play the old sh!t!" before THat's what God Made the Radio was sung....what a tool.   anyways, I walked in front of your row saying: "EgoHanger1966, EgoHanger1966, EgoHunter1966"   but no one responded. I had a hard time seeing Brian and while Brian's the highlight, I was sad not to see him as much. My girlfriend love Brian's Adidas pants when he got on bass....I said, "honey, he's been wearing those type of pants since the mid 70s....it's what he's comfy in."

And I ran into some folks in line after who had a visitor pass, they told me they had a friend in the band and that's how they got em....I asked who the friend was, and they said Darian S....I was so envious of them.

Great time was had except by douche's who yell for old music and wear hawaii lei's and tropical shirts and yell for Kokomo...btw, those damn beach balls being hit around reminded me of that video where Jeff, Carl, MIke....anyone in the band performing got hit by the beach boys

Post by: EgoHanger1966 on June 16, 2012, 10:26:56 PM
I'm gonna tell this story while it's still fresh.

So, the sound system is already weak enough where I'm sitting, the chatter of the crowd could clearly be heard over the music. I was feelin' kinda peeved because I felt so far away, hardly an interactive experience like Bethlehem. Bruce starts Disney Girls and this drunk guy in back of me is having a conversation, rudely loud. The woman next to me asks him to stop talking and he starts a confrontation. Her daughter turns around and utters four simple words: "Shut the f*** up". This pisses the guy off so much, he starts hurling insults at this poor young woman who just wants to watch the show. Note, I am a very reserved person, so for me to say anything means I'm really pissed. He's going off about how he's offended that she used the f word, blah blah blah. I can't freaking hear Disney Girls over all this commotion and it's driving me batshit - I PAYED for these tickets too. So, I turn around to the guy with a biting tone and say, "HEY. Excuse me sir, would you please stop talking?". He was so drunk, all he could think to say was "maybe YOU should stop talking", which was utterly ridiculous because that's the only thing I said. Eventually, he spilled his beer and left. Jerk.

But yeah, the people around you can really affect your concert experience. When there are so many people in front of you and it's light out, it was just really hard to get into "the zone", so many distractions. I'm sure if i'd been up close like some of you, I would have enjoyed the show fully. As the first set got further and further, my experience got better. The second set was amazing, they fixed the sound and it was dark, all of the problems from the first set didn't matter.

P.S - they were still doing the buy 9 and get 1 autographed. I couldn't pass it up. Emptied my wallet!

(http://i.imgur.com/1lE28.jpg)

I now have a bunch of extra copies (I just listed some on Amazon), I'll sell a sealed copy to any board member with paypal for $9, free shipping.
Or, we can go thru Amazon, but you'd pay moah...

wow, you bought 10 copies at the gig  :lol incredible

Sad thing is, I''d do the same

Dude, when I got home from the gig, I put the extra copies up on Amazon - in about half a day, I sold them all!

Incredible

A few things about last night...Nicky was not there. I don't know if he is off the tour entirely at this point or what.  And Mike was really pushing the album hard. When he first talked about buying the ten and getting an autographed copy, he messed up and said that you could get the ten for $10.00.  I think it was Bruce who pointed out the mistake and made a comment like, "What a great deal." Mike quickly corrected himself lol.  Overall I think everyone sounded great last night. Brian started singing IJWMFTT early and the band had to adjust to catch up but they did.

This was the first time my wife has seen Brian live and she came away very impressed. He was definitely more animated for the second set.

And I just want to echo what others have said about the drunk people. There seemed to be quite a few last night. I was lucky that none of them were sitting very close to me.

It was Jeff that corrected him about the CDs. Yeah, Brian was quite animated. I think he comes more alive in the second half, because he has more leads and keeps him more engaged.

It sounded a lot like Mike's vocal on the record, at least from where I was sitting. I actually thought it was Mike singing and I was wondering why the jumbotron kept showing Dave!

Nope, it was Dave. At soundcheck, they went through the song 3 times. It sounded like His phrasing was off a bit. I think Bruce and Jeff thought so too, but when performed in the show, Dave did the same thing. He changed the lyric a little too.

Dave has a little of Mike's nasal thing going too, at least on Getcha Back. It was hard to tell if he was like that when he sang Hawaii in Atlantic City last month. Mike did the lead on Hawaii last night.

Jeez they couldn't let Dave have 2 leads? Give him Getcha Back but Mike takes Hawaii back? Seems like Mike has Al and Dave on strict lead vocal quotas!

Well, both are Mike Love leads. Why would David -God bless him- sing them while Mike is there?

Looks like security arrested anyone who had a camera during Getcha Back.

Surely Brians doing some of his original vocal in Getcha Back, it's not all high notes! As for the falsetto, despite the fact it was recorded in 85, i cant seem to find a clear answer of who exactly sings in the recording!

Dave did the "I'll leave her and you leave him" part that Brian sang at the end on the original.

The live versions of Getcha Back from the 80s with Brian that I know didn't even feature him on falsetto but Foskett. I guess it was the same here

It looked like Brian was playing some piano, but anytime I looked over at him while watching David sing, I never saw Brian sing a note during Getcha Back.

As David's blue guitar (second pic, above) was being tuned before showtime and the Roadie tuning it dropped it front first, 3 to 4 feet onto the stage floor. The thud was so loud that I thought for sure it got damaged, but not so. Dave played it throughout the show.

Im dying for a video of "Getcha Back"! But I'm so disappointed David sang lead! First Christian Love and now David Marks. Why doesn't Mike sing lead on this? It's one of my favorite songs. So disappointed......... :( but it still will be amazing to hear!!!

The other nighttttttttttttttttt
