The Brian Wilson – Jeff Beck tour kicked off to a huge response on Friday night (September 27th) at Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock Live. Joining Wilson as part of his touring band was Beach Boys co-founders Al Jardine and David Marks — with ’70s bandmembers, Blondie Chaplin — who was part of the Rolling Stones’ touring band for 15 years — joining the musicians onstage to sing his Brian Wilson-written signature tune “Sail On Sailor.”

Wilson’s set, which including him trading off lead vocals with Jardine, included such Beach Boys classics as “Do It Again,” “California Girls,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Heroes And Villains,” “Help Me, Rhonda,” “Summertime Blues” — with Marks on lead vocals and guitar workout, “I Get Around,” “God Only Knows,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Sloop John B.,” and “Good Vibrations,” among other hits. Beck’s set featured performances of Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” Muddy Waters’ “Rollin’ and Tumblin’,” and the Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.”

Wilson and his band joined Beck for show-stopping guitar-led instrumental readings of such Beach Boys Pet Sounds and Smile tracks as “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder),” “Our Prayer,” and “Surf’s Up,” during Beck’s 16-song mid show set. Blondie Chaplin joined both band’s for encore performances of “Surfin’ U.S.A.” and “Fun, Fun, Fun.”
