Brian Wilson to Play the Beach Boys’ ‘Pet Sounds’ for the Last Time at 50th Anniversary Tour

Brian Wilson

In 1966, Brian Wilson transformed the Beach Boys’ sound and pop music at large when he released Pet Sounds. Fifty years later, Wilson has announced he will perform the album for the last time during an upcoming world tour.

The run of dates will kick off on March 26 in Auckland, New Zealand. Then, Wilson will play concerts in Australia and Japan before playing a show in Austin, Texas, on April 30. He then heads to England, but he’ll return for even more U.S. dates in June. See a list of all of his upcoming stops at the bottom of the page.

“It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago,” Wilson said in a press release. “I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the World.”

Last year, the biopic Love & Mercy — which starred Paul Dano and John Cusack as ‘60s- and ‘80s-era Wilson, respectively — chronicled the making of Pet Sounds.
