    Brian Wilson Performs Smile live in London this weekend

    Well Beach Boys enthusiasts, lets all hope a recording of this was done. Excerpts off the Ass. Press wire:

    "...thirty seven years late, Smile received its live premiere in London tis weekend - and most critics agreed it was worth the wait.

    Mr. Wilson, 61, and performing again after years as a near recluse received a five minute standing ovation at the end of the show at London Royal festival Music Hall.

    A black clad Mr. Wilson led an 18 oiece band in performances of several Beach Boys hits, followed by the complete Smile - concluding with its best known track, Good Vibration".

    Gaddam, wish I'd bean there.
    Do I have to spell it out?

    Yeah, I've seen some people posting the setlist as kinda sorta like below. Apparently all the London shows are being filmed so probably a DVD later. Also worth noting is that he used the earlier Tony Asher (and VDP?) lyrics for Good Vibrations. So will this now be the "official" track order for Smile? Not likely

    I've been told that boots are already floating around online. The sequence for the SMILE portion of the show runs pretty close to most of the versions I have. I haven't gone to a show I couldn't get in for free...in a long time. But if this comes to NY I'll sell my cat if I have to.

    I don't like others.

    I have tickets for 6 March when he appears at Newcastle City Hall here in North East England.

    I've never been a major fan of Wilson/Beach Boys but my view is the guy is a legend and I just had to go - particularly as the gig is only 10 miles from my house. 50 GBP per ticket in a 1500 seater hall and I'm four rows back and centre . It's my wife's birthday that day too so I hope this will provide a memorable day for her (and me). In preparation I've been buying a couple of things like the BB's Pet Sounds and Wilson Live at the Roxy Theatre.

    Will post a review afterwards though not for a week or so as the following day I'm off on a diving holiday to the Red Sea (Sharm El Sheikh). The London concerts have had very good reviews and one of the Sunday papers did mention that certain dates on the tour were being recorded for DVD release.
    Cheers

    Les
