Brian Wilson | Good Vibrations - Greatest Hits Tour
8 Jul 2021 8pm
Rescheduled from 14th June 2020.
Brian Wilson returns to the UK with Al Jardine & Blondie Chaplin to deliver his greatest hits and fan favourites from his career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist.
Wilson has been universally hailed as a writer of one of the greatest American songbooks, Pet Sounds, which has reigned atop countless critic and fan polls, and has maintained its timeless rank as one of popular music’s most-cited influences. The Pet Sounds Anniversary World Tour was named one of Rolling Stone’s Greatest Tours of 2017; it travelled to more than 24 countries for 180 performances from 2016-2018.
Wilson’s remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music. His mum and dad both played piano, and as a young “boy soprano,” Brian’s vocal gift was immediately evident. He had also started singing harmonies…literally “in their room”…with his two younger brothers (Dennis and Carl). As a teen in the 1950s, he became obsessed with the harmonic blend of groups like the Four Freshmen, and then, in the early 1960s, inspired to combine multi-part vocal harmony with the rock rhythms of Chuck Berry, Brian found his place in the musical sun. He was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever... nine consecutive “gold” albums that featured such classics as Surfer Girl, In My Room, I Get Around, Don’t Worry Baby, Fun, Fun, Fun, Help Me Rhonda and California Girls... just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, The Beach Boys.
