Brian Wilson, the lead singer of The Beach Boys, is currently on tour in honor of the 50th anniversary of “Pet Sounds” – one of the most magical albums ever (okay, that’s totally my opinion, but it really is a masterpiece).

Wilson will be making a 2017 tour stop at the BJCC Concert Hall along with his band to perform “Pet Sounds” in its entirety. Fans will also hear some of their favorite Beach Boys tunes and solo material of Wilson’s.

I will refrain from making any Beach Boys puns… LOL just kidding – wouldn’t it be nice to see you there! God only knows that you’ll have FUN FUN FUN.

Check out the legend playing live on May 9th! Tickets go on sale October 21st at 10AM. More info here.
