The Beach Boys in Concert! is an exhilarating day-by-day journey through the triumphs and tribulations of one of rock history's most legendary acts. Over ten years of exhaustive research has produced an unprecedented window into the Beach Boys' thrilling successes, personal tragedies, and interband dramas globe-trotting rock-and-roll adventures from 1961 to 2012. The Beach Boys in Concert! is a solidly factual and highly entertaining ride from the humble beginnings of driving to local gigs in their mom's station wagon to touring the world in private jets with a massive entourage in tow, from nervously playing to a dozen unimpressed Southern California surfers to performing for a half-million worshipping fans on the national mall. The evolution and growth of an entertainment phenomenon is captured here in a far more detailed way than ever before. The Beach Boys in Concert! is the ultimate document for fans when it comes to the group's career as concert performers; no other publication comes close to this tome in scope, detail, and definitive quality. Adding to the feast is an extensive collection of unpublished photos and rare memorabilia images that bring fans deeper into the context of any given era covered in the book. This detailed, illustrated 50-year Surfin' Safari will blow your mind!
