In terms of influence and legacy, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys is among America's most significant artists. Although his tour in support of the 50th anniversary of Pet Sounds is winding down, Wilson will be performing select 'Greatest Hits Live' shows, including an April 18 date at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, CO.
Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, Jan. 26, at 10am; click here to get yours directly through AXS.com.
Beyond his iconic work with the Beach Boys, Wilson has lived a life worthy of the big screen treatment he got in the 2015 movie "Love & Mercy." After the Beach Boys astonishing success in the '60s gave way to a series of personal tragedies, Wilson succumbed to serious mental health problems, which kept him a virtual recluse for decades. Thankfully, his second wife Melinda helped him recuperate and free himself of the toxic influence of former manager Eugene Landy. In 2004, he finally completed the long-lost Beach Boys project Smile and has remained busy touring and releasing solo albums in the years since.
So his Colorado Springs concert is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the life and legacy of one of America's most brilliant musical minds. Click here for tickets to see Brian Wilson at the Pikes Peak Center on Wednesday, April 18.
