1. You won't see the touching tributes to the late Carl and Dennis Wilson in which the band backs up video footage of each deceased member singing "God Only Knows" and "Forever" respectively.
2. You won't see a performance of "Add Some Music to Your Day" in which all five core members of the group sing around Brian's piano.
3. You won't see David Marks play the title track from "Pet Sounds" solo.
4. You won't see Brian Wilson sing "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" and "Please Let Me Wonder."
5. You won't hear some of the classic ballads like "Surfer Girl" or "In My Room."
These are the most glaring omissions in my opinion but those aren't the only performances missing from this video. That's not to say this video still isn't enjoyable. There's enough here to love including great performances of "Heroes and Villains," "Sloop John B," "Sail On, Sailor" and "Wouldn't It Be Nice" among other hits plus two songs from the somewhat obscure 1972 Carl and the Passions album which are surprising but welcome inclusions. The band is shown in good form and the video itself is well-shot.
There are no bonus features and the DVD lacks a chapter menu so if you want to hear a specific song, you have to press "Play All" and use the skip button on your remote.Read more ›

Not a single disappointment. In fact most songs are better than the originals.Published 19 days ago by Robert R. Braun
One of the best Beach Boys Concerts ever. Great Concert !
I would highly recommend this concert to anyone !
I didn't realize that only half of the songs are here. I did very much miss the two tribute songs, Dennis Wilson singing Forever and Carl Wilson singing God Only Knows.Published 3 months ago by Rick S.

|Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour Live in Concert||
The Beach Boys were indeed doing between 45 and 50 songs in concert during their 2012 tour.
However, The Beach Boys don't issue "warts-and-all" type of live documents. They release things that are carefully edited to show them at their most professional. This is what we are getting... Read More
