I enjoyed this show immensely, and I don't know how much I can actually attribute it to the Beach Boys. We got right up to the railing, no problem and preceded to pass out about 70 leis to all the people around us and enjoyed hitting the beach balls with our neighbors. Everyone around us was simply overjoyed to be there, it was contagious we had the biggest smiles on our faces

No Uncle Jesse and the stage banter was very painful but it was still a fun show. I sat in the grass and watched while chatting with some guy who joined me to wait for the Bon Iver pit. I'd definitely see them at another fest if I was looking for something to just chill to for an hour.
I guess we should be glad to see who we did. Odds of seeing Uncle Jesse have just increased....
"The Beach Boys were excited to be together again when they reunited for this year’s Grammy Awards for a 50th anniversary celebration, but that hasn’t stopped controlling member Mike Love from giving Brian Wilson the axe, along with Al Jardine and David Marks. After sharing a stage again for an anniversary tour, Love announced he would be continuing the shows without his bandmates, and would instead play with Bruce Johnson and a backup band, which is rumored to include longtime Beach Boys friend John Stamos.
“The post-50th anniversary configuration will not include Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks. The 50th Reunion Tour was designed to be a set tour with a beginning and an end to mark a special 50-year milestone for the band,” read a statement issued by Love.
The Boys have had their share of spats, drama, and addiction since forming half a century ago, but fans are shocked at the blatant disregard for sheer history and loyalty as founding members are forced out of what
“I’m disappointed and can’t understand why he (Love) doesn’t want to tour with Al, David and me. We are out here having so much fun. After all, we are the real Beach Boys,” Wilson said.
Sadly, the tour with Wilson, Jardine and Marks is still ongoing, meaning that if the hard feelings can’t be overcome, London will be in for a strange set. "

An article I read a few months ago said there was a conflict of interest in what material the group would perform. Wilson wanted to do some of the more experimental things while Love wanted to stick to the happier, sing-a-long type of songs he has been doing with the Beach Boys he has been playing with over the years. I think not having Jardine's voice will be just as big of a loss for the quality of the shows from here on out with Love's interpretation of the group
