GOOD Vibrations rang out across York's Knavesmire last night as music legends The Beach Boys kicked off the racecourse's Music Showcase weekend.

The American band behind hits such as Surfin' USA, God Only Knows and California Girls, performed in warm evening sunshine on a huge trackside stage after the racing action had finished.

Racecourse spokesman James Brennan said a crowd of 15,000 was expected to come and watch the racing and concert, which he expected to include all the famous hit from their back catalogue, and even more were likely to attend tomorrow evening's fixture and concert by Wet Wet Wet.

The Beach Boys also performed a “new song” called Pisces, written and recorded by band founder member after George Harrison passed away. Along with Mike on stage was Bruce Johnston, a Beach Boy since 1965.

It was a great night, good to see so many young people enjoying The Beach Boys music.
As for noise pollution, i live near Bramham Park and the festival is on for 3 night, music till midnight. It is once a year thing surely music till 10pm is not that bad. Why are folk so grumpy life is to short to be miserable

I agree that the term "rock Legends" might be a misnomer. I would have preferred a Led Zeppelin tribute band, but if others enjoyed it GREAT! But why are there so many people in York like Mr Ruddock who cannot tolerate the sight of others having a good time? We saw the same with the TDF. If it disturbed your viewing of Eastenders for a couple of hours get it on catch-up TV. Miserable old git!

I live in Dringhouses. The sound tests for the band started on Friday morning and were incredibly loud; so much so that at first I thought someone in the next street must be having a party. Much of the day was disturbed by having to endure live 'singing' (loud rock music) and this went on well into the evening. It is very irritating for local residents. The first comment from Dave Ruddock is correct. The person who lives one street away must be deaf (Buzzz lightyear?). Why don't York Council tackle noise pollution by bands?

Why don't you and Ruddock go and live in somewhere like North Korea. You'd be well at home. They don't like their population having a life either.

It is possible to enjoy music at a volume whereby it isn't inflicted on people who don't want to hear it whilst entertaining those attending the event. Try attending a concert in York Minster for example. I actually had no 'notice' of these events and even I did I shouldn't have to leave my home to escape the noise. Throwing up flak about acts of terrorism and war in other countries is irrelevant. The fact is there are laws about noise pollution in this country. If your neighbour was disturbing you with their music maybe you would think again.

You're right, there are laws about noise pollution etc. and I suspect that as the music event went ahead these weren't broken. If you think otherwise then contact the relevant department at the council and ask them to investigate? The only problem there might be is whether you think the racecourse and organisers haven't already checked this out beforehand.

I too live in Dringhouses and was bitterly disappointed that I could hardly heard the music. We had a notice delivered through our door a couple of weeks ago informing us of the finish times of the bands (which were adhered to) and a contact number. Obviously the sound carries in different directions but I can't believe the Beachboys music is particularly offensive. This reminds me of a recent visit to Iran when we were in a cafe and asked to stop laughing as it was offensive to the other customer!
Let's hope we never get like that here!
