On May 16, 1966 an album emerged from a young adult and his family band. It has been remarked by many, including The Rolling Stone as one of the “greatest albums of all time.”
Now after 50 years of “Pet Sounds,” Brian Wilson, one of the founders of The Beach Boys and the main creative force behind the album is taking his emotional autobiography on the road once last time.
The North American tour began June 14 in Burlington, Vermont and runs until October 14 in Lake Tahoe, California. With over 30 stops in North America alone, Wilson will play more dates in 2016 than he ever has as a solo artist.
His next stop is Elmwood Park Amphitheater in Roanoke, Virginia on Aug. 20 for the “The Beach Ball” hosted by Across-the-Way Productions, the creators of the beloved FloydFest.
Joining Wilson in Roanoke are South African-born musician and vocalist Blondie Chaplin, who became a member of The Beach Boys in 1972 and one of The Beach Boys’ founding members and long-time family friend, Al Jardine.
