An amazing concert. The musical arrangements were so beautiful and each song flowed one after the other. The musicians were exceptional as were backup singers. I loved every minute.

Music was 6 of 5 stars. Vocal was single star. Smiled with music open like it was mid “60s. Smile came off with first vocal. Brian, God love you. Probably best to let some one else sing.

Friends invited us to this event. I was really hoping that the Blossom Festival Orchestra was going to play Brian's nuance songs with Brian contributing from the keyboards. I was sadly to disappointed to hear Brian trying to sing (when he could remember the lyrics). Although most of the harmonies at this event were decent, virtually all of solo singing was awful. I was also disappointed that a lot of unknown music was selected as opposed to Brian's strong book of tunes

Brian Wilson's band had an excellent performance at the Blossom Music Center last night. HIs vocals were limited, though necessary to provide the Beach Boy"s harmony for the wonderful "Pet Sounds Album". The a'ccoustics at Blossom are wonderful and band brought that stellar sound system to provide a great venue. The key player was singer Matt Gardene. His falsetto voice was the main component for the most memorable Brain Wilson/Beach Boys songs. The concert was non-stop with a short intermission. A number of the songs were well-known from the "Pet Sounds Album", and the Cleveland Orchestra was exceptional. The eclectic audience really enjoyed the reflective 60's sounds. Sad to see Brian having help leaving and entering the stage, but his phrasing and harmonic sounds with other stronger voices is what the distinct sound of the Beach Boys is all about. It is apparent without the young Gardene the distinct Brian Wilson/Beach Boys harmony would be void of what I recall from the 60s. I also enjoyed the Blondie Chaplin's solo on "Wild Honey"! I am very happy I did not miss this Cleveland Orchestra/Brian Wilson-Pet Sounds 50 years concert.

Brian had to cancel 12 concerts due to ill health. His Blossom concert was his second since those cancellations. The show must go on, so they say. He had contracts to honor, and I'm sure his bandmates are depending on these concerts for their livelihoods. But he was clearly struggling, forgetting words, barely getting them out. He was clearly not ready to be on stage. But he is a giant legend of 60s rock. His band did their best to support him. Once "Pet Sounds" was over, they did their old favorites from their beach days and the crowd had a good time. But Brian was hurting, and it was so evident. He has been there for us for so many years--"In My Room," "Good Vibrations," "Wouldn't It Be Nice?" At Blossom, we paid tribute to him.

Sad to see,Brian Wilson needs to stop touring .The rest of the band did their best to cover for him.He barely sings,yawning through many songs.Do not waste your money on a Brian Wilson tour.The legend needs to give it up.

Pathetic to see a legend like Brian Wilson propped behind a piano .He lost his great voice ,mumbled,stumbled through songs,the few he sang.This concert should not continue it is an embarrassment to Brian Wilson.The legend needs to bow out gracefully.Do not waste your money.
