Kenwood picnic and Royal Albert Hall to host the former Beach Boy
Brian Wilson has confirmed he will return to the UK after a sell out 2007 world tour, for three ‘Greatest Hits’ shows this Summer.
Wilson will open the Kenwood Concert season with an outdoor picnic show on June 28, then play Ipswich’s Regent Theatre on June 29, before ending his short run with a one-off show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on July 1.
‘An Evening With Brian Wilson’ will see the Beach Boy co-founder and legendary arranger/producer perform with his long-term ten-piece band, and he hopes to dig up tracks from his huge back catalogue that have yet to be performed live as well as the crowd pleasers.
Wilson has previously played the classic albums ‘Smile’ and ‘Pet Sounds’ in their entirety live in the UK, and last year premiered a brand new compostion ‘That Lucky Old Sun (A Narrative)’ to great acclaim at London’s Royal Festival Hall.

Kenwood, Hampstead, London – English Heritage Picnic Concerts (June 28)
