Interesting that he plays quite a bit in the 86-90 years which are prime Landy-era years and you are led to believe that his contact with the band is minimal in this period. Though what his relationships were like with them at that time is another matter - Al Jardine criticising his shoes etc....

6/29 - Canadian Olympic Park, Calgary AB, Canada

I saw this show.  Mike was absent.  Carl said he couldn't make it, and much to the chagrin of the other Beach Boys, Brian chimed in with, "He's very sick, in fact he might die!"

It was 1990 - according to my Beach Boys Fan Club newsletter from that year (yes, I was/am that nerdy) he was doing some literacy project in the States.

The ? are because I know Brian played one show, but can't confirm the rest.

The * is a reminder to me that he played a solo mini-set within the BB shows, then joined them for the encore.

A really interesting list.  Seems BW was definitely more inclined to be at LA area and Las Vegas shows.  One question, AGD, approximately what percentage of shows, during the years in question, was Brain a part of?  And, if anyone knows, what was Brian's, Landy's, or whomever's criteria for Brian appearing with the BBs?

Excellent point. These totals don't include overseas shows, just USA/Canada:

1984 - 104 [6%]
1985 -   93 [4%]
1986 - 101 [3%]
1987 - 130 [15%]
1988 - 133 [6%]
1989 -   94 [9%]
1990 -   97 [8% or 14%]
1991 -   93 [0%]
1992 -   66 [0%]
1993 -   78 [0%]
1994 -   67 [0%]
1995 -   89 [4%]
1996 -   68 [3%]

As for which shows, well, the 4th July, 25th anniversary, Fan Fair, Live Aid & such like gigs were gimmes... some he subbed for Alan... the odd Texas show in 1996 was because the whole band were cutting "Warmth" in Texas with Willie... the Vegas/Tahoe gigs were, I would imagine, because there was a residency therefore the Landy retinue could set up HQ in the hotel... otherwise, I'm guessing Landy decided, up to late 1991 at least.

At the Nashville 1995 show,, did he perform the entire concert with them, or just on the songs that he sang? He sang Don't Worry Baby, and In My Room, I believe. It would be interesting to know how many shows from the above list were complete concerts with Brian, or only certain songs, etc.

From the footage I've seen of the 1996 Nashville show (allowing for creative editing), he was on stage for most of the show (which was pretty short, just 22 songs).

Andrew

I was too young to attend the Grand Falls Newfoundland show back in 1990 (wasn't into them at the time anyways).  My brother went and a girl that he went with sent us pictures of Brian Wilson from that show. Sadly, I lost them.   He is trying to get in contact with her again to scan the pictures and send them.  If I do get them, I will surely post them and/or send them to you.  For years I argued with my brother:  "listen, your confused, there was no way Brian Wilson was in Newfoundland at that time. " He was like " I swear, they all arrived in a helicopter (with Uncle Jessie) and about half way through the set they announced "ladies and gentlemen Brian Wilson."  He remembered he sang on Surfer Girl .  Strange that Brian came ALL the way out to Newfoundland in 90. Weird.

Regards
Mark

The last time Brian Wilson has played a show in Halifax, NS was August 4, 1991 at the Metro Centre, and it was with The (so-called) Beach Boys. He needs to come back here. Sad

In their article on Dennis' death in 1984 they said Brian did some Feb 1984 Lake Tahoe shows at Harrah's . They mention he didn't make the late show.

Thanks for the reply. I don't recall hearing of the solo mini-set before. Any details anywhere?

And for those who like Brian quotes, also new to me, this from the band press conference discussing Dennis's death and the bands future.


'For me the mourning is over' he said 'As far as I am concerned, nothing is going to hold back the ball of wax' It's still a go'.

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=HKQyAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Fe8FAAAAIBAJ&pg=2769,3010420&dq=brian+wilson&hl=en

Love it! Grin

edit...Brians quotes may be worthy of a new thread so I have started one.
