Beach Boys Concert--May 13, 2007

Trent Arena, Kettering, OH
May 13, 2007

Contributor AfterNothing99 writes: "The Beach Boys were a tad late, so the opening act, a dreadful accapella group called Eleventh Hour, milked their set. The audience was about 65% full, and I would estimate that over half were a good 45 or older. Mike Love sat for the majority of the show, and was a bit somber from songs #4-11, although he perked up. He spilled a cup of water during “Then I Kissed Her.” He plugged the new “Warmth of the Sun” greatest hits with a brief story of how he and Brian wrote the tune. I tried to initiate an ovation for Brian but it didn't take. He prefaced the performance of “Surfer Girl” with a funny comment “This song is for all of the lovely ladies here…that shows you this isn’t the Village People or something!” Bruce Johnston, however, was up and active throughout the entire show and actually was a minor highlight. The three songs played from Pet Sounds sounded great, and Mike added that “Disney Girls” was “a beautiful song that Bruce sings very well.”...The audience favorite was “409.” Another funny incident happened after “I Can Hear Music” when Mike said (after a run of four cover songs) “Here’s a Beach Boys song for a change!”
