The Final Performances
with special guest Al Jardine & Blondie Chaplin
With one of the most in demand concert outings of the year, music legend Brian Wilson is extending the final performance run of his Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour. Garnering critical acclaim and marking a true return to form, Brian Wilson and his band, joined by former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin continue to deliver a live performance of Pet Sounds in its entirety, as well as top hits and fan favorites spanning his 54-year career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist.
"There were so many cities on this great tour that myself, my band, Al, and Blondie just couldn't get to playing," says Wilson. "We're performing more shows than ever before and the fans keep asking for more! It's been a real trip so far and I'm happy that we'll have the chance to reach so many people that weren't able to catch our shows this year."
Universally hailed as a writer of one of the greatest American songbooks, Pet Sounds has reigned atop countless critic and fan polls, and has maintained its timeless rank as one of popular music's most-cited influences.
In 1965, with the Beach Boys out on tour, Wilson began session work on some of the most deeply personal recordings of his career. Inspired by The Beatles Rubber Soul, he challenged himself to create an immaculate musical masterpiece. A vast departure from the bands' then commercial sound, the resulting "concept album" Pet Sounds achieved great critical success helping usher in a new musical landscape.
