This was not a concert for casual Beach Boys fans, or Jeff Beck fans for that matter. And there were a few of each faction in the lobby near the end of the two-hour-plus set complaining about being cheated out of more material — particularly from folks who came to see Wilson.

Another fan sporting a Jeff Beck tour shirt was also audibly frustrated by the setlist as he stormed toward the exit before the encore.

They were counterbalanced, however, by many who sat riveted for the duration, occasionally with jaws agape or wiping tears from their eyes. There were some truly magical moments — make that many magical moments to be found — beginning with the opening number.

Instead of launching into the chugging rocker “Do It Again,” which came third in the set, Wilson’s group opened playing no instruments at all. And their flawless rendition of “A Young Man Is Gone” provided electrifying evidence of what was to come. – [Soundspike]

The above review comes from Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck‘s show in Wallingford, CT. The pair were in NYC last week as part of their tour, having played The Beacon Theatre (where they surprised the audience by doing Pet Sounds in full) and then played Montclair, NJ’s Wellmont Theatre on Wednesday (10/16) that also featured Blondie Chaplin on a few songs, not to mention fellow Beach Boys Al Jardine and Dave Marks. Pictures and setlist from that show are in this post.

Brian then stuck around NYC afterward to sing at the Darlene Love tribute at Cipriani’s. More photos from Wellmont below…
