Love, Love, Love the Beach Boys music and Brian Wilson for writing it. Jeff Beck was AMAZING! The best of the best! Beautiful night, easy parking and exiting. Love the Greek!

Brian Wilson was terrible. He can't carry a tune anymore. His hand motions while sitting at a piano that he barely played were awkward and strange looking. Jeff Beck was much better technically, but the music seemed very repetitive. We were two...continued

Jeff Beck and his band was fantastic. Poor Brian Wilson really cannot sing anymore, and barely touched his piano. His set was like watching a really good cover band, with an unsteady lead singer. The high point was Beck's interpretation of "Surf's...continued

We were a little surprised the Beach Boys only performed for half the show. Didn't know who Jeff Beck was. He was okay, but certainly not the same genre as the Beach Boys.

A musical highlight in my concert going life.
Jeff Beck is church for any music lover... His guitar sings with a voice that sends shivers up your spine and moves you to tears. Lizzie Ball"s incredible violin intensifies the experience
To hear the...continued

It was very crowded and we couldn't find a parking place so we got in after the concert had begun. Brian W. was singing and has a bad voice. After a while the group sang several songs and were OK. Jeff Beck was pretty good and my granddaughter...continued

The beach boys stuff was good, but Brians new stuff was off key and strange. Jeff Beck was not good. He did not give his fans any of his hits from the 60s, or any hits at all. He can play guitar like none other, but the play list was bad!

We sat up in the South Terrace and could really only see the performers on the big screen or by using binoculars. Too far away to really get involved in the performances.

That being said, Brian Wilson is far past his prime. The audience really...continued

There is not a bad seat in the house at the Greek Theatre. Brian Wilson opened and did Pet Sounds from beginning to end and then after a brief intermission Jeff Beck came out and did a set of songs from all aspects of his career. Then Brian's...continued

Loved Brian and company and Jeff Beck.
When they all played together in the middle of Jeff Beck's performance that was amazing and fun!!
Actually, our seats were not bad in the Terrace section as I thought they would be. Overall, it was a great...continued

Brian Wilson & band were awesome. Particularly enjoyed the Beachboys medley at the end of their set, as well as when Jeff Beck joined the Beachboys at the end of the show. Jeff Beck was great; we just didn't expect his set to to be all...continued

Brian Wilson and his band played a few Beach Boys numbers, that was the best part. There were multiple standing ovations for this part of the concert. But, Jeff Beck was a big turn off. Super noisy, no earplugs were good enough to make this...continued

Really good show. While Brian Wilson struggled with his singing when he sang alone, the harmonies were very good and the band was great (and big). Jeff Beck was simply amazing, as always. He is one of the best, for sure. No one can play the way...continued

I can't believe they actually started on time right at 7:30! It was one of the most amazing nights of music in my life. Brian Wilson is a musical genius and Jeff Beck is in my top 3 of the greatest guitarists EVER, right behind Carlos Santana. ...continued

Brian Wilson and Al Jarrdine and the band were great. We left when Jeff Beck started - not our kind of music.

I went with my husband. Sound system set up was very good. We enjoyed Beach Boys for the first half. Although we like guitar music, we felt the 2nd half all Guitar instrumental music was not for us. We felt bored towards the end. Mixing more...continued

We had good seats with an unobstructed view of the stage, and the sound and visuals were excellent. It was one of the best concerts we've attended in years.
