Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts
Returning to the Kauffman Center after his sold-out performance in 2016, Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson will perform his Greatest Hits Live
, with special guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. Tickets for this event range from $49 to $119 plus applicable fees and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 28.
Brian Wilson is a deeply revered figure in popular music, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. He was barely out of his teens when he started to make gold albums featuring classics like “Surfer Girl,” “In My Room,” “I Get Around” and “Don’t Worry Baby.” Wilson’s ground-breaking work on the album Pet Sounds
and the single “Good Vibrations” re-wrote the rules of what a pop album or single could be. His solo record SMiLE
, released in 2004, had been anticipated by music fans since the late 1960s.
Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and a multiple-GRAMMY Award-winner. With the Beach Boys, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
