Beach Boys Concert--July 4, 1980

Washington DC
July 4, 1980

One of the most famous concerts in rock history. Over 500,000 people gathered on the Washington Monument grounds to listen to the Beach Boys on the fourth of July. Portions of this concert were used for an HBO special, and most of it was aired on FM radio as well. I received three different setlists for this concert, and had to go with the most reliable source, who is a notable rock historian and was backstage at the concert. I'm pretty confident that this is the right list, but thanks to the others who contributed! :)
