In Case You Wanted To Know


In case you wanted to know:
  • The Beach Boys' concert last night was fabulous.
  • It is their 50th Anniversary Tour.
  • It is the first time in a very long time that they have all been together.  Something like 30 years. (Minus the two members of the band who have passed away.)
  • It was a thrill and an honor to see Brian Wilson on stage performing again.  He has battled many demons.
  • They played for almost 3 hours.
  • They sang roughly 35 songs.  (But who's counting?  The lady sitting beside The Kid, that's who.)
  • These men are pushing 70.  How is it possible?
  • They sang them all.
  • I sang them all.  (They sound much better than I.)
  • Favorite moment:  Brian Wilson singing Surfer Girl.  (My personal favorite BB song.) 
  • We were quite surprised at the diversity of the audience.  Many twenty somethings mixed in with the senior set.
  • The concert did not end until 11:30 PM.
  • We arrived home at roughly 2:00 AM.
  • Wish I could do it again tonight.
  • We had "Fun, Fun, Fun" til the BB's exited the stage.
It you are a Beach Boy fan and they are appearing in a venue near you it is a must see concert.  Don't want to go alone?  Call me.
