Brian Wilson presents Pet Sounds at 50 Summers of Love at Exhibition Centre Liverpool, Waterfront 28 July 2017 Tickets from £55.00 — Book now

To mark 50 years since 1967’s Summer of Love, Liverpool – regarded by many as the epicentre of the movement – hosts a rare performance of one of the decade’s landmark albums. The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds will be performed by its producer and arranger, Brian Wilson, for one of the final times.

Blending pop and psychedelia, and benefitting from the intricate melodies and tight harmonies of Wilson and co, Pet Sounds was the band’s pinnacle. It inspired the likes of the Beatles – with Paul McCartney acknowledging that it gave the Liverpool quartet the impetus to make Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

With only three UK dates on this very last chance to see Wilson performing Pet Sounds, the show will include rare cuts and a greatest hits finale. Beach Boys co-founder Al Jardine and the Flames, plus the band’s singer and guitarist Blondie Chaplin, will support.
