1
  Mike & Bruce attended.
2
  Brian only played the first night of this set of gigs promoting L. A. (Light Album). These
  were the only shows where the disco version of "Here Comes The Night" was performed.
3
  Christine joined the band for three of the encore songs.
4
  It was during this week-long residency that Dennis & Mike had an onstage fist fight, the
  upshot of which was that Dennis was 'suspended' from the band until the 1980 European
  summer tour (with a very few exceptions - see below). Comedian Glen Super was better
  known as 'Mr. Bullhorn' and opened for The Beach Boys on many occaisions.
5
  Brian guested on an unspecified number of these shows: Bruce & Dean Torrence joined
  for the final show.
6
  Not so much cancelled as abandoned - the roof of the venue collapsed as Heart were
  performing.
7
  Dennis played part of this show, the last time he played with the band until the 1980
  UK tour, with the exception of three November dates (see below).
8
  Randy Bachman's home studio - Carl was the only BB involved in these sessions.
9
  The Floyd approached The Beach Boys to do the bvs on this track, and they agreed. The
  session was booked for noon to 5 pm, but was cancelled the morning it was due to take
  place: according to Roger Waters, "they decided to go off and do their own album". The
  bvs were eventually recorded nearly two weeks later by Bruce Johnston, Joe Chemay &
  Toni Tennille.
10
  One of the only two KTSA sessions to feature Dennis: he drummed on "Johnny B.
  Goode".
11
  The other KTSA session that Dennis appears on, but only on "Endless Harmony"
  (percussion).
12
  Dennis was back in the band for this mini-tour, his last live shows until the summer 1980
  European dates.
