June 2, 1987

Marriott Marquis Ballroom


I picked up the [amazing] Stebbins/Rusten In Concert book after finding this unused ticket and noticed my edition doesn't list this show. Was this show cancelled? Perhaps an unadvertised private gig? I'm familiar with boardwalk style knock-off memorabilia where the show is fictitious or a KTSA-era picture is featured for a show from the 60's, but this ticket doesn't stick out as something you'd find at the OCNJ Surf Mall.

Anyone have thoughts or recollections of this event?

Best to message Ian, I guess. He found a couple of "new" shows after his book was published, so there's a possibility that this one was also unknown to him at the time.

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.

Mystery solved: Just checked the Bellagio reference again (which probably should've been my second resort after the coffee table book). Looks like a private corporate event at the Atlanta Georgia Marriott Marquis Ballroom. Until I thought to also look there I couldn't tell if it was Atlanta, NYC, or DC.

I really like the themed background on this ticket. Much more fitting the band than the average Ticketron fare.

Definitely a private gig, then. If it had been a public show, I would have been there.

Yes I saw that Atlanta show....We list it at http://bellagio10452.com/gigs87.html  which of course I have helped to compile for many, many years now.   That site is constantly being updated by me-whenever I find a new show or someone passes on some new info-so it is very up to date with latest research.  My own site is only up to 1967 (if you click on 1967 I have just started in on it) but Bellagio is up to date (though bellagio does not have reviews or photos, etc).  So if you look at Bellagio you will see, for example, all the 1987 shows that I know of.  As the years go by we are pretty complete...I think we list almost every show played after 1964.  The 1962-64 period is still a work in progress, as we occasionally learn something new when another paper is digitized or an old poster or flyer comes up for sale...I've found about five or six new shows from the 1962-63 period in the last year alone-that even Jim Murphy missed in his great book
