Brian Wilson — playing Galway this summer.

He is revered by Beatles and rock royalty, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history and one of the most influential composers of the last century.

This 50th anniversary celebration tour will be the final performance of Pet Sounds in its entirety. Performing with special guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin and a 15-piece band, the album will be performed in its exact running order followed by the best of Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys material. Jardine and Chaplin are Wilson’s former bandmates, while Jardine also co-wrote the Pet Sounds track I Know There’s An Answer.
