Brian Wilson Concert--December 13, 2002

Brian Wilson
State Theatre, Sydney, Australia
December 13, 2002

David Leach writes: "Taylor was still a little tender on her ankle, but all still had fun (at her). On Thursday nights show, towards the end, everyone was getting carried away with standing ovations. For Fridays show the first thing Brian mentioned was not to stand up, at all. Friday night was an older audience than his 2 previous AUS shows. Women in their mid-forties were dancing their way down the front, and were swiftly whipped by some so-called security guards. There was even a drunk lady in the front row, directly in front of Brian, trying to out do his actions. Next to me, there was some guy in his sixties telling me the difference between a Xylophone and a Vibraphone... who cares.

Brian was a little ahead of everyone. He would have already introduced the next song before the guys were ready. Scott Bennett then approached Brian to stall for a few minutes so he could set up, so then he did his routine cigarette lighter check. Later in the show Jeff needed some time. By this time, Brian had used all his stalling devices, so without warning to the band, he says 'How well can you sing Row Row Row Your Boat?'. This song was performed 3 times, twice during the Pet Sounds set. Jeff then popped the question 'Was this on the original recording, Brian?' Brian answered without hesitation 'No'."
