Brian Wilson has postponed his forthcoming UK tour dates due to COVID restrictions, and announced a co-headlining US run with Chicago.

The former Beach Boys frontman was set to head out on the UK leg of his Good Vibrations Greatest Hits Tour, which sees him playing with former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, in the summer of 2022.

After the shows were already rescheduled once, they have now been pushed back again, with rescheduled dates yet to be announced.


“We are SO sad that we have to once again push our tour due to the constantly changing and challenging issues overseas surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic,” Wilson said in a statement.

“Me and the guys were looking forward to seeing everyone, eating great food and performing. But with routing impossible and needing to keep our touring group safe we need to postpone. Such a bummer. I miss Europe. I MISS London and all of the UK…. My second home. Send good vibes that we will be out of this soon. Stay safe everyone.”

Instead, next summer will see Wilson, Jardine and Chaplin heading out on a US co-headlining tour with Chicago, that begins in early June and runs through until the end of July.

Back in August, the Beach Boys shared two unreleased songs including an unreleased a capella version of “Surf’s Up”. The two tracks were taken from the band’s recent box set, Feel Flows – The Sunflower & Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971.
