Beach Boys Concert--August 23, 1997

Garden State Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ
August 24, 1997

The contributor of this setlist says that this may have been Carl's very last show, as numerous concerts were canceled right after this one. He reminisces: "The coolest memory I have about this concert is that my friends and I made a BIG sign that said "CARL" and we held it up for him and yelled his name (through most of the show ;) At the end of Sail on Sailor when we held up the banner, he said `thank you' like usual, and then he pointed to us and said, `Thank You, It's Beautiful' We were in Heaven! (pun intended :)"
