Storyline

On June 21, 1980, the Beach Boys original lineup took to the stage at Knebworth England for what would become their final concert together in the U.K. Largely uninspiring, this performance represents the Beach Boys' surrender after a decade of terrible record sales of their original 70's material and a resurgence in interest in their pre-1967 material. Absent to fans are numerous masterpieces from the late '60's and '70's, most noticeably, anything from from Sunflower. Endless Harmony (documentary) and the Brian Wilson Tribute are much better DVD's. Hopefully future DVD releases will include better performances, such as the 1973 tour or Brian' Live from the Roxy.

A great live band...
7 April 2006 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

...performing near its peak.

Many (certainly not all) of the Beach Boys' in-concert standards are included. Sure, the band members squabbled, like many siblings (and cousins) we know, which is also one reason why Brian Wilson hated touring. But this never stopped the Boys from putting on a great concert.

Knebworth may also be our best opportunity to hear the exquisite voice and wonderful energy of Carl Wilson, who served as the artistic "heart" of the band during the "post-Brian" era, until his untimely death from cancer in 1998 at age 51. Carl's lead on Darlin', God Only Knows and several other songs here is breathtaking.

For Beach Boys fans, this DVD is a must-see.
