Brian Wilson performing ‘Gershwin’ in its entirety on tour (and Beach Boys songs too)

Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson released Brain Wilson Reimagines Gershwin last year, an LP that put his own spin on classics by the American composers. Now comes word that Wilson will take those revamped classics on the road and play the album in its entirety “as well as classics from the Beach Boys back-catalogue.” He’ll be doing that all across Canada in June and in Europe in September, but first he’ll kick things off on June 9th at Wellmont Theater in NJ. Tickets for that one are currently on AMEX presale and go on regular sale March 4th at noon.

Wilson also recently completed a second “reimagining” LP, one where he revisits Disney songs, though no release date on that yet. A Gershwin video and all tour dates below…
