Year by year BW concert totals 1998-2021
   There was a time, in the early 80s, when the notion of Brian touring at all, much less solo, was close to unthinkable. Yet, the most unlikely possibilities have a knack of comign to pass - I give you The Smile Sessions -  and accordingly, since the late 90s, Brian has become a seasoned, if sometimes uncomfortable, live performer to the point where his solo shows may well outnumber his concerts with The Beach Boys. The chart below presents a year by year, region by region list of all his full solo shows, with the 2012 50th Anniversary Beach Boys gigs included for reference. Considering only his solo shows, the totals to the end of 2020 are as follows:
 
USA - 516
Rest of the Americas - 38 (incl. cruise: 2)
Europe - 188 (British Isles: 114)
Rest of the World - 55
Total - 797
 
  2020 was of course seriously disrupted by the CoVid-19 pandemic and it remains to be seen how the subsequent years will pan out.
 
  A goodly proportion of Brian's solo shows have had an overriding theme, usually tied to a particular album, as follows:
 
Pet Sounds 1 (orchestral) 2000 - 37
Pet Sounds 2 2002 - 34
BWPS 2004-05 - 91
Pet Sounds 3 (40th anniversary) 2006-07 - 10
TLOS 2007-09 - 32
BWRG 2011 - 26
Wilson/Beck 2013 - 22
Pet Sounds 4 (50th anniversary/Last Performances) 2016-19  - 216
Christmas Album 2018 - 17
Something Great from '68 2019 - 17
 
Those of a mathematical bent will note that a) he's played 502 "themed" concerts and that b) of those 297 were Pet Sounds in its entirety, so he can be forgiven for being a little weary of it.
