Thank you, and good night!

The Beach Boys formed in 1961, that’s a mind-bending fifty years ago, FIFTY YEARS! Truly amazing when you consider what its lead songsmith & genius Brian Wilson has been through (he locked himself in his bedroom for three years in the ‘70s). AND, that’s not to mention how fresh their extensive back catalogue sounds today. Drooling aside, Brian Wilson has announced his imminent retirement.

Wilson is currently in the UK doing the interview rounds to promote his forthcoming September UK tour. Talking to the Evening Standard he confirmed that it would, sadly, be his last here; ‘Oh God yes. Another year, maybe. This could be the last time I play here. I'm going to miss it, but I'm getting a little bit old for touring,’ he said, adding; ‘as I get older it gets harder for me. But when I'm sitting down at the keyboard and my bands behind me, I can do it.’

Brian Wilson plays three nights at London's Royal Festival Hall on 16th, 17th, 18th September. Catch the legend whilst you can.
