The Beach Boys have announced a second UK date for September after previously unveiling a Wembley Arena gig in May.
The legendary band, who have been rejoined by Brian Wilson to mark their 50th anniversary, will perform at the Wembley Arena on September 28th, and have now revealed that show will be preceded with a special gig at the Royal Albert Hall a day earlier.
The two concerts form part of a wider European tour for The Beach Boys, which will also support their 2012 studio album ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio‘ along side the anniversary celebrations. The record was produced by Brian Wilson, and is the first album of original material from The Beach Boys since 1992, while also being the first to feature guitarist and backing vocalist David Marks since 1963.
After charting at number three on the Billboard Top 200 upon its release in the States, ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ handed The Beach Boys the new record for the longest span of top 10 albums in the history of the US chart, stretching their run of top 10s to 49 years following their first chart success, ‘Surfin’ USA‘, in 1963.
Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall gig are onsale from 9am this coming Friday (June 29th).Just Published:
