HASH(0xa206496c) out of 5 stars Good, but doesn't capture the magic of the tour. 24 Nov. 2012
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Having seen the Beach Boys live on their 50th Anniversary tour, I was excited when I saw there was a DVD documenting it. However, one of the things that made the tour so special was that the group played two full sets each night, sometimes playing over 50 songs in one show. This DVD only has 21 of the songs played on the tour and that doesn't even add up to half of the tour's setlist. If you didn't see the tour live and you buy this DVD, you miss out on some of the highlights.

1. You won't see the touching tributes to the late Carl and Dennis Wilson in which the band backs up video footage of each deceased member singing "God Only Knows" and "Forever" respectively.
2. You won't see a performance of "Add Some Music to Your Day" in which all five core members of the group sing around Brian's piano.
3. You won't see David Marks play the title track from "Pet Sounds" solo.
4. You won't see Brian Wilson sing "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" and "Please Let Me Wonder."
5. You won't hear some of the classic ballads like "Surfer Girl" or "In My Room."

These are the most glaring omissions in my opinion but those aren't the only performances missing from this video. That's not to say this video still isn't enjoyable. There's enough here to love including great performances of "Heroes and Villains," "Sloop John B," "Sail On, Sailor" and "Wouldn't It Be Nice" among other hits plus two songs from the somewhat obscure 1972 Carl and the Passions album which are surprising but welcome inclusions. The band is shown in good form and the video itself is well-shot.

There are no bonus features and the DVD lacks a chapter menu so if you want to hear a specific song, you have to press "Play All" and use the skip button on your remote. This might bug some people.

Overall, this is a fine sampler but should not be seen as the definitive document. The band deserves better and the fans deserve better. Hopefully in the future, we will see another release from the tour that gives these songs the presentation they deserve and a full concert would be nice.

I have said it on Facebook, and I will say it here, The fans of The Beach Boys have been begging for a complete concert dvd. This is only 21 songs of the 50 song set during the tour. It seems that nobody in the band is reading our posts here on Amazon, or Facebook. As for the quality of the dvd/BD release,I will edit the review when the dvd is available.

HASH(0xa190330c) out of 5 stars THIS RELEASE IS A RIP OFF! 20 Oct. 2012
By Brian L. Tuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Beach Boys are awesome, their 50th Anniversary tour was amazing, but this release is a rip off! The Beach Boys performed around 50 songs at each of the concerts including many amazing rarities with beautiful harmonies. Unfortunately, this release is lacking all of the magic. The corporate powers that be have decided to only include 21 songs on this DVD so that they can sell more copies to the casual fans. This "Live In Concert" DVD contains only about 40% of what The Beach Boys performed at each of their shows. This DVD does not contain most of the hauntingly beautiful harmonies and wonderful music that made this tour so magical. This DVD release is an insult to anyone who truely appreciates the beauty and genius of The Beach Boys. This DVD does not do the band justice, nor does it give the fans what they deserve. Don't waste your money here so that the corporate big wigs can cash in on the legacy of The Beach Boys. The fans deserve a release of an ENTIRE show.

As a follow up in case you missed it, here are the songs that The Beach Boys performed that are NOT included on this DVD: Little Honda, Don't Back Down, Surfin Safari, Surfer Girl, The Little Girl I Once Knew, This Whole World, Wendy, Getcha Back, Then I Kissed Her, Please Let Me Wonder, You're So Good To Me, Kiss Me Baby, Come Go With Me, Why Do Fools Fall In Love, When I Grow Up To Be A Man, Dance Dance Dance, Darlin, Disney Girls, Good Timin', It's Ok, Cottonfields, Be True To Your School, Balad Of Ol Betsy, Still Cruisin, Don't Worry Baby, Pet Sounds, Add Some Music, Our Prayer, I Just Wasn't Made For These Times, Let Him Run Wild, California Dreamin, California Saga, In My Room, Surfer Girl, Forever, God Only Knows, All Summer Long, Do You Wanna Dance, Surfin USA, Barbara Ann, & Summers Gone.

The Beach Boys performed ALL of these songs, and All of these songs have been left off this DVD! Take a look at what you're being shafted out of getting and decide for yourself if this DVD is a winner!

HASH(0xa205b4a8) out of 5 stars Over too soon. 25 Nov. 2012
By George T. Goebel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The first thing I want to do is respond to an earlier reviewer's claims that The Beach Boys sing to a studio track on the song "Isn't it Time". You are dead wrong! It's done live and it's wonderful as is the rest of this oh too short concert film. Why would The Beach Boys lip-sync when they have Brian Wilson's magnificent back -up band behind them literally doubling all the vocals. Not only does this allow the boys to relax and concentrate on their own harmonies but it makes for a much richer live reading of their classic works. For hardcore Beach Boy fans like myself, this concert thankfully contains a juicy center beginning with "Heroes and Villians", "Sloop John B", "Wouldn't it be Nice", "All This is That" (Which made me cry.), "That's Why God Made the Radio", "Sail On Sailor", "Good Vibrations" and the timeless "California Girls". I, like many other fans reviewing here, hope that this isn't going to be the only visual and audio record of this historic musical event that I feel so lucky to have seen this past June in Columbia Maryland. Let's have another volume of the 50th live concert, only this time include what's already on this dvd plus the rest of their 50 song play list. I'll buy it and so will all of the other millions of Beach Boys fans, it's a no brainer and everybody wins. This was a well filmed live concert, the Blu-Ray image really put you there and the 5.1 surround, although I had to crank it up, sounded really good. They all looked relaxed and like they were having fun including our national treasure Brian Wilson who never sounded so good (No lip-syncing,THAT'S FOR SURE!) My four star rating is only because it's not the whole concert.So get this dvd and hope that one day soon, the powers that be release the definitive entire set for our enjoyment in the years to come.

HASH(0xa1903624) out of 5 stars much better than many reviews want you to believe! 24 Nov. 2012
By Michael A. Calabrese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Many fans have intentionally constructed harsh reviews to punish the BB organization for failing to produce a full-show or 50 song DVD film, so many of these negative reviews are a form of critical sabotage. Take then with a grain a salt, as the product is much better and more aesthetically fulfilling than the these will opponents will allow. Others have made more valid critiques of the photography and production artistry, and I myself was sensitized by their cautions when I first put the show on. However: because, despite any concerns, I was simply overwhelmed by the quality of the songs in themselves, the excellence of the performances, and the chance to see so many things that my shaking binoculars prevented me from seeing in concert.

I concede that there is a Platonic BB concert film in our imagination somewhere and perhaps even in the realm of earthly possibility, if the very best production and sound artists were in charge of every recording and filming detail. But in its absence, I will watch this over and over; I find it intimate, detailed, bright, optimistic, loving, and warm. I love the song selection, the directness of the performances, and the tons of lost (now found) Beach Boy Dave Marks playing monster licks. The reality of seeing the BB performing together (and not in grainy you-tube fan videos) trumps an over attention to the details about film editing and camera angle. Viewers will do well to disarm their plastic, Apollonian senses and give themselves over to the Dionysian intoxication of the BB music.

Added note: if you are a fan of David Marks you have to be very happy: I watch the DVD over and over just to study his riffs, some of which are historical (the parts he and/or Carl played) and some of which are invented anew. For many who embrace archetypal narratives of redemption, David Marks IS the reunion. Imagine that kindly boy from "across the street" who left the band at 15, now, in his 60's playing again with the BB, drawing fans to their feet with gasps of awe. Yes, I want a 60 song DVD, and I want to see David himself leading the BB orchestra in a majestic version of Pet Sounds, but I will wait for those and cherish this DVD (the price of 2 venti pumpkin spice lattes?) for now.
