About Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson returns to the UK in May and June 2020 with special guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. Wilson will deliver the greatest hits and fan favourites from his career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist.

As a co-founding member of The Beach Boys, Wilson makes a welcome return to the UK to perform Good Vibrations Greatest Hits Live across the country. The UK leg will start in Brighton on 31 May and continue around the UK with a special show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, before ending on 17 June in Cambridge.

Wilson has been universally hailed as a writer of one of the greatest American songbooks, Pet Sounds, which has reigned atop countless critic and fan polls and has maintained its timeless rank as one of popular music’s most-cited influences. The Pet Sounds Anniversary World Tour took place between 2016 and 2018.

He began his career as a teenaged co-founding member of The Beach Boys, who signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes. Wilson’s innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements for major hits, including I Get Around, California Girls, Wouldn’t It Be Nice, God Only Knows, and the No.1 smash Good Vibrations, established The Beach Boys as America’s pre-eminent band of the 1960s. 

Wilson has also achieved great success as a solo artist with 11 of his own albums released to date, including his acclaimed 2004 completion of an album he first began recording in the ‘60s, Brian Wilson Presents…SMiLE. The album earned Wilson his first Grammy for a recording, which was followed by his second Grammy win for producing The Beach Boys’ acclaimed 2011 release, The SMiLE Sessions. With his own band, Wilson has performed major, sold-out tours in recent years, and with The Beach Boys he celebrated the iconic band’s 50th anniversary in 2012 with a major international tour and acclaimed studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio.

Brian Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and a UK Music Hall of Fame inductee. As a member of The Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
