I will be attending the May 1st show in London with my father. He has never heard any BW material live. It's gonna be a blast. Maybe we run into some SmileySmiler or other there. Smiley

If you turn up on May first, you're in for quite a wait.  Smiley

However, if you mean the 21st, I'd be delighted to make your acquaintance.
Typo corrected!

I'll keep that in mind!

Hey now, that hits close to home. While I am known (and mocked) for my punctuality by friends, I once surprised and REALLY annoyed them by getting us to a Prince concert about 25 hours early...

I've been to the Strathmore before (which is in North Bethesda Maryland, not DC but digress  LOL)

Small but GREAT acoustics. Perfect venue for Brian.

Oh yeah!  Saw Mike and Bruce there a few years ago in a show that included several cuts from the Christmas album that I never thought I would ever hear live.

Got my ticket for the September show.  Definitely hoping for Blondie to be there as he missed the Brian/Beck show at the Warner in DC.

I have seats for me and my girfriend for the London show on the 21st. Waaaaay back in row I on the second balcony, but luckily two of the last 10 seats left available.

The non-VIP tickets go on sale at 10AM. You and I along with many others will be competing!

Got tix for the 4/15 show in Osaka--very excited!  I'll be curious to see what else gets played besides Pet Sounds of course.

Did you get tickets for the Strathmore?  I thought they weren't on sale until March 4th.

Is it probably quite likely that the meet and greet (at least in the UK) will just be like the 50th? Where you literally just stand behind them and have a photo taken? Will it even include Al or Blondie?

I am so tempted to get one of the VIP packages, but can't decide which. If they were much cheaper I'd go for the meet and greet without hesitation!

See you there. Smiley  (The Mrs. got us tickets to that show in case they didn't announce a show for our neck of the woods...but word on the street is they WILL be soon. We hope it's Ravinia!)

Anyone here a member of State Theatre (Easton, PA) club that lets you get tickets before the general public?

If I knew a photo was involved and Al and Blondie were included I'd go for the Meet and Greet package (UK).  I don't so i don't want to risk it.  I'm very fortunate to have met Brian 4 times (and would love to do so again) but it's a lot of money.  I'm also going to two shows and taking my wife and 7 year old to her first concert.

Yeah, we know Al and Blondie are at the shows. I think mabewa was replying to the question about photos at the meet-and-greets.

Regarding the meet and greet package, I've bought one for April 3 in Melbourne, but noticing there was no mention of a photo with the worldwide package as opposed the the U.S packages, I emailed the local promoter. They responded today by saying they'd been in touch with Brian's management about it and management has said it will depend on Brian on the given evening. So the photo opportunity may be hit and miss.

Interesting that Brian has a say in the non-US packages, but they say a picture IS included in the US packages.

With no picture, what do you do at a meet & greet?

BW's Facebook page recently said something like, "Don't worry, fans in Chicago, NY, and LA -- we'll be announcing dates soon"...

I'm glad I scooped up tix for this show in addition to Tanglewood.   He can still sell tickets...

Spot on Andrew!  I would love a picture with the three Beach Boys!

Seems strange to me, but that's the explanation I got by his management through the promoter . I guess I'll wait and see

Meet people and greet them? I'd imagine (given my experience of similar events but without paying for them) you'd get a chance to talk to Brian's band, and maybe Al and Blondie, and then Brian will come in, you'll get a chance to shake his hand and maybe get an autograph, maybe exchange a few words.

I'm not sure if this has been posted already, in which case I apologise, but another date has been added to the London Palladium. It's half sold out already by the looks of it, so if you want to get a ticket, or an extra one, then check it out quickly!

This is not how the NPP tour VIP souncheck and meet & greets were conducted. It was much more formal, Brian and Al (and Blondie, if he was playing the show) would be at a table. You would be ushered into the room, they would sign the Love & Mercy sheet music plus one additional small item. You would then stand behind them for a quick snap with your camera/phone. Very little time for chitchat. The backing band was not involved in the meet & greet portion, just the soundcheck.

I bought the VIP meet & greet going on the assumption that this is how the Pet Sounds tour would most likely be conducted. If I recall, the Beck tour was similar. I question if they will allow one small item to be signed in addition to the GOK sheet music and poster. If not, I'm hopeful I could forgo having one of those items signed and instead get my Rolling Stone magazine cover signed. We shall see, I'm sure there will be plenty of anecdotes posted from both the international and US shows.
