However, as has been noted by other reviewers, it's not even close to a full concert. The average setlist for this tour included just under 50 songs, while this show has just over 20.
This could have been a great document of a brilliant reunion (which is not likely to happen again), but instead it's a missed opportunity.
Brian appeared to spend the entire concert seated at the grand piano. When he sang, he was reading from a prominent teleprompter. The best part was a very touching and understated "Heroes and Villains, with Brian singing throughout, followed by snippets of "Sloop John B" and "Wouldn't It Be Nice." This was really the only section where he showed up. I didn't know that Al Jardine sang lead on "Help Me Rhonda," but he provided the only other bright spot.
The saddest part of all was on "Fun, Fun Fun," the final track. Brian stood up near center stage with a bass slung over his shoulder. He sort of attempted to play, but I don't know if it was plugged in or if he was even miked up. The producers should have allowed him more dignity :(
