May 20 Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds: The Final Performances
TICKETS: $34.50-$85, plus applicable fees, www.theamppompano.org or www.axs.com

Pompano Beach, FL—AEG Presents is proud to welcome the critically-acclaimed concert Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds: The Final Performances to the Pompano Beach Amp on May 20 – 7:30pm start with 6:30pm door time.

As one of the most in-demand concert outings of the past two years, the legendary Brian Wilson has extended the final performance run of this world-wide phenomenon. Praised by critics and fans around the globe, Wilson marks a true return to form and delivers a liveperformance of Pet Sounds in its entirety, as well as top hits and fan favorites spanning his 54-year career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist.

Universally hailed as a writer of one of the greatest American songbooks, Pet Sounds has reigned atop countless critic and fan polls, and has maintained its timeless rank as one of popular music’s most-cited influences. The emotional autobiography of its then 23-year old “auteur” is considered by many to be one of the greatest albums ever made. In the process of bringing it to life, its composer, arranger and producer (Mr. Wilson) rewrote all the rules of what a record could be; as one observer noted, its release was “Independence Day” for rock ‘n’ roll.

“We are blown away by the reception of this tour, it’s unbelievable how many people love this album,” said Wilson. “The audiences have been so fantastic, and we are honored to play for them. We never expected this reaction, so we will continue to perform this album for people as long as they ask us to!”

Wilson began his career as a teenaged founding member of The Beach Boys, who signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes. Wilson’s innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements for major hits including “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” and the No. 1 smash “Good Vibrations” established The Beach Boys as America’s preeminent band of the 1960s.

Wilson has also achieved great success as a solo artist with 11 of his own albums released to-date, including his acclaimed 2004 completion of an album he first began recording in the ‘60s, Brian Wilson Presents… SMiLE. The album earned Wilson his first GRAMMY® for a recording, which was followed by his second GRAMMY® win for producing The Beach Boys’ acclaimed 2011 release, The SMiLE Sessions. With his own band, Wilson has performed major, sold-out tours in recent years, and with The Beach Boys, he celebrated the iconic band’s 50th anniversary in 2012 with a major international tour and acclaimed studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio.

Brian Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and a U.K. Music Hall of Fame inductee. As a member of The Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
