IT was a truly Californian night when the legendary Beach Boys came to town.
We all bathed in the warm evening air and danced to the sounds of Surfin’ USA.
Mike Love and Bruce Johnston brought their classic harmonic sounds to the Son Fusteret venue, bringing plenty of good vibrations to the mixed fan base of oldies and youngsters.
Since 1962 the band have recorded and sold an incredible 100 million-plus records with number ones all over the world, including Californian Girls, Help Me Rhonda and Good Vibrations.
Mike Love told us how he had first visited the island in 1972, and we watched videos of their time meditating in India in the 60s and 70s.
It was a night of hits from their many albums including tunes from the Pet Sounds album to new songs highlighting the pollution of the Planet.
It was all there as the favourite songs brought the fans to their feet, arms waving and everyone singing, many dressed in their Californian surfing shirts.
Good, good, good, good vibrations indeed!
