Brian Wilson Extends Pet Sounds Tour, Adds San Diego Concert



Brian Wilson’s good vibes will continue. The Brain of the Beach Boys extended their “Pet Sounds” 50th anniversary tour in 2017.

His vast North American concert tour next year begins March 27 in Orlando and ends May 28 in Santa Barbara. It includes a May 24 performance at the San Diego Civic Theater, Wilson’s first regional show since his June 30 “Pet Sounds” concert at the San Diego County Fair grandstand with a group including Beach Boys Alumni. Jardine and Blondie Chaplin.

The full tour itinerary appears below. The cover photo for “Pet Sounds” was taken at the San Diego Zoo, as Wilson and Jardine recalled in this 2015 Union-Tribune interview.

Wilson’s tour in 2016 was billed as his live farewell to “Pet Sounds,” his masterful 1966 album with the Beach Boys, which the Beatles cited as the inspiration for their 1967 opus, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

“There are so many cities on this great tour that myself, my band, Al and Blondie just couldn’t play,” Wilson said in a statement.

“We’re playing more shows than ever and fans are asking for more! It’s been a real journey so far and I’m happy that we have the chance to reach so many people who haven’t been able to attend our shows this year.

Tickets for the San Diego concert go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster, with online presales starting today, Wednesday, at 10 a.m. Tickets are priced from $ 32.50 to $ 122.50, plus service charges.
