The Beach Boys In Concert, Now and Then

We bought tickets to see The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour concert at Mohegan Sun Casino Arena, May 12th, 2012. The event is already sold out.

The last time we saw The Beach Boys live in concert was July 2, 1971 in Central Park. They headlined a star studded evening that was filmed for ABC television. The show included the Boz Scaggs Band, Kate Taylor, Carly Simon, the Ike and Tina Turner Revue and The Beach Boys. The show was called Good Vibrations from Central Park. All those great groups for $2, can you believe that?

Digging around on the Web I am able to find video clips of Boz Scaggs,  Carly Simon and The Beach Boys segments. It appears that the ABC show is available as a 51 minute DVR (probably bootleg). I’d love to see it again as we last watched it on ABC television in August of 1972. I think an EBay purchase may be in order here after Lent 😉
