Thanks for the news Joost.
I'd have loved to see the tour but I'm going to pass on the live album etc.
Somehow the Beach Boys always maka a mess of live albums. (Except for Party! - but how live was that?)
'Party' was recorded in the studio, the "party" sounds were overdubbed afterwards.
I don't agree with you though that all their live albums are a mess. 'Concert' was indeed bad: partially live, partially recorded in the studio with artificial crowd noises, and a lot of cover songs that were inferior to their own material. But 'Live in London' and 'In Concert' are really excellent. They sound great, they didn't mess with the recordings afterwards and the final albums are cool mixes of hits and fan favorites. Nothing wrong with those two albums. And 'Live at Knebworth' is not that bad either, is it?
