The Beach Boys continue to flesh out their busy 2017 fall tour schedule. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have added a new U.S. date, for Oct. 22 in Kansas City, Missouri, at Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland.
The Kansas City Star reports on April 5 that the “California Girls” hitmakers will bring their pioneering brand of surf rock to the City of Fountains as part of their 50 Years of Good Vibrations Tour. The multi-platinum sellers have been performing around the world in continued support of the 50th anniversary of their groundbreaking 1966 studio album Pet Sounds and its chart-topping smash single "Good Vibrations."
The KC date announcement takes place on the heels of two recent U.S. additions on July 15 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, at Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds as part of Northern Wisconsin State Fair, as well as Sept. 22 in Saratoga, California, at The Mountain Winery. The shows are part of a second U.S. leg that will follow an extensive summer tour of Europe and the U.K.
Presales for the Kansas City performance begin Thursday, April 6 at 10:00 a.m. CDT. Tickets go on sale to the public, ranging from $49.50 - $125.00 on Fri., April 7 at 10:00 a.m. CDT and are available at AXS.
The band will be featured in the television premiere of “The Beach Boys: Making Pet Sounds.” The documentary will include new footage and air April 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET on Showtime.
Fans don't have to wait until the fall to catch the Grammy winner in action. The Beach Boys still have over dozen dates left on their current U.S. spring romp. Their next stop takes place April 6 in Franklin, North Carolina, at Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts and wraps up April 30 in Madison, Wisconsin, at Overture Center for the Arts.
Mike Love and company will then head overseas for an extensive run through the United Kingdom, starting with a two-night stand May 18 – May 19 at London's historic Royal Albert Hall. The European leg winds up June 27 in Rome at Parco della Musica Auditorium.
