Concerts are due in 2016

Brian Wilson has revealed his next European tour will be his last.

The news came in a statement posted on Wilson’s website.

In it, Wilson announced he is to postpone his current scheduled UK tour due to commitments in America.

The UK tour was planned for September 2015, but Wilson has now decided to postpone the dates due to the success of the biopic, Love And Mercy.

The rescheduled shows will now take place in 2016, with a string of concerts to mark the 50th anniversary of Pet Sounds.

Critically, they will also be his last European dates.

Said Wilson in the statement, “I’m sorry I won’t be able to make these shows this year, but I look forward to seeing all my fans in 2016 to help me celebrate 50 years of Pet Sounds. This will be my final European tour. I hope you all enjoy my movie when it opens in the UK on July 10, I’ll see you all soon, Best Brian.”

Tickets holders are advised to get refunds for the 2015 shows from the point of purchase.

    This is a cancellation NOT a postponement and it has nothing to do with promoting the film. The real reason is because Brian’s management were fools to book a UK arena tour and with ticket sales of only 25% it was inevitable the tour would fold.
