Brian Wilson has added 37 concerts to his Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour, which he says will be the last time he performs The Beach Boys’ landmark 1966 album Pet Sounds — whose best known songs include “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Sloop John B” and “God Only Knows — in its entirety.
Among the 37 shows is one at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, April 28. Tickets, priced from $49 to $125, go on sale Oct. 14 at 10 a.m.; visit njpac.org.
Two other Beach Boys members, co-founder Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin (who joined for a few years in the ’70s, and sang lead on the hit “Sail On, Sailor”), are featured on the tour, which features many Beach Boys hits in addition to the Pet Sounds material.
Wilson said in a press release: “There were so many cities on this great tour that myself, my band, Al, and Blondie just couldn’t get to playing. We’re performing more shows than ever before and the fans keep asking for more! It’s been a real trip so far and I’m happy that we’ll have the chance to reach so many people that weren’t able to catch our shows this year.”
No other Jersey shows are currently scheduled on this tour, which stopped at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank on Sept. 21.
