Music legend Brian Wilson has announced a 2016 World tour to celebrate and perform the Beach Boys’ iconic album Pet Sounds for a final time, in honour of its 50th anniversary.
The UK dates include a stop at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hallon June 1.
Wilson and his band will be joined by former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin.
Fans can expect a live performance of Pet Sounds in its entirety, as well as top hits and fan favourites spanning his 54-year career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist.
Originally released on May 16, 1966, Pet Sounds is universally hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time. 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 and hit the Top 10 in the US while topping the charts in the UK.
Speaking about the tour, Wilson said: “It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago.
“I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world.”
