All roads lead to Kokomo. Exhaustive research in time travel has conclusively proven that there is no alternate universe WITHOUT Kokomo. It would've happened regardless.

Good catch hypehat!

Looks to be another mini concert out in Central Park to be televised for the ABC morning new program "Good Morning America"...much in the same vein as when Mike/Bruce did the Today show a few years ago except obviously a bigger venue here in Central Park.  So they do a small (5-10?) song set in the relatively early morning, that afternoon they hop on a plane for a 90 minute plane ride to Maryland for a gig that same night.  These guys ain't foolin around!

It's part of Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series, so parts of the concert will be aired live, hence the early morning start time. I read a press release somewhere that said the concert starts at 8 a.m., but fans should start gathering at 7.

Correction: 7 a.m. and gathering at 6.

Just saw this as well. Good Morning America on the ABC network. The TV show begins at 7:00 a.m. with the concert performances usually happening later in the show. They'll be performing for TV but they'll probably perform a little more after the show is finished. Get those DVR's fired up!

Found this random link on Google. Stamos isn't getting much love on the comment thread:

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Which means if you live in the middle of Long Island (ahem...), you've gotta be up at 4 AM, so you can get to the train at 4:45...  Undecided

Didn't even know they played GMA too--thanks for the clips.

Man, after watching them on this current tour I really can't watch ANY old version of the Mike/Bruce band now. Lips Sealed
