TRIBUTE CONCERT TO BRIAN WILSON, BUT HE WAS THERE...
Maybe I am not a dedicated Brian Wilson fan and therefore did not know what to expect, but I am knowledgeable of what Wilson has meant to American music and of an age that I first listened to Beach Boys in the 60's. But this concert was one of the worse I have been to. And at $100 a pop, maybe THE worse. Brian sang perhaps 5 songs and struggled to do so. The lighting crew kept the lights on everyone else and placed Brian in the shadows. It was a scam. I came to hear Brian, not watch an ill man/legend sit at the piano disengaged from all around him. And not playing or singing

Music was 6 of 5 stars. Vocal was single star. Smiled with music open like it was mid “60s. Smile came off with first vocal. Brian, God love you. Probably best to let some one else sing.

PLEASE STOP TOURING
Friends invited us to this event. I was really hoping that the Blossom Festival Orchestra was going to play Brian's nuance songs with Brian contributing from the keyboards. I was sadly to disappointed to hear Brian trying to sing (when he could remember the lyrics). Although most of the harmonies at this event were decent, virtually all of solo singing was awful. I was also disappointed that a lot of unknown music was selected as opposed to Brian's strong book of tunes

PET SOUNDS BRIAN WILSON
Sad to see,Brian Wilson needs to stop touring .The rest of the band did their best to cover for him.He barely sings,yawning through many songs.Do not waste your money on a Brian Wilson tour.The legend needs to give it up.

BRIAN WILSON PET SOUNDS AT ROSE MUSIC CENTER.HUBER HEIGHTS OHIO
Pathetic to see a legend like Brian Wilson propped behind a piano .He lost his great voice ,mumbled,stumbled through songs,the few he sang.This concert should not continue it is an embarrassment to Brian Wilson.The legend needs to bow out gracefully.Do not waste your money.
Jeff from Las Vegas, Nevada
Saw the Brian Wilson tour at the Joint in Las Vegas. Brian Wilson is a universally acknowledged musical genius, but he should not be touring. His vocals were massively off key and delivered almost in a monotone. His bandmates did their best to cover and had fantastic soaring harmonies. Brian however, was literally just a prop they put out front. Half the time he looked completely spaced out and unaware of what was going on around him. It was sad to see and significantly detracted from the enjoyment of the concert. This type of performance can only hurt his legacy – his band needs to start carrying on without him.

BRIAN WILSON AT THE FOX OAKLAND
We had to leave. Painful to watch. Wilson was there in body only, propped up behind a fake piano. It was sad. Al Jardine's son was good covering the high notes. But for most of the concert, you wanted to look away.
