Brian Wilson: Canadian Tour

SOURCE: Published: 2010-11-20

Brian Wilson will embark on his first-ever cross-Canada tour in June of 2011. For many Canadians, the tour represents their first opportunity to directly experience and pay homage to this unrivaled mainstay of the cultural soundtrack. Audiences can look forward to a musical tour de force as Wilson performs his latest critically acclaimed album Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin in its entirety, along with a selection of classics from both the Brian Wilson and Beach Boys back-catalogues.

“I've always tried to make music that entertained people," Wilson said. “I also wanted my music to last, to be able to speak to any generation. Thankfully, nearly 50 years since the Beach Boys were born, that seems to have come true. Now, with this album a new musical chapter begins for me, and it's going to be a chapter to remember. I promise."
