Brian Wilson and the Zombies are heading out on tour together this year with their North American Something Great from ’68 tour. The joint tour will celebrate their music from 1968 and beyond.
Beginning Aug. 31 at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and wrapping Sept. 26 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, the tour will take Wilson and the Zombies to 15 cities around the country.
As for what to expect, Wilson will be joined by Beach Boys bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. Concert goers can expect to hear songs from two of Wilson's favorite Beach Boys albums, 1968’s Friends and 1971’s Surf’s Up, as well as a mix of rarities and classics.
