Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys making MN stop in final 'Pet Sounds' tour

Publish date:

Brian Wilson will perform "Pet Sounds" in its entirety for the final time during an upcoming tour.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beach Boys' iconic album, Wilson announced a world tour that will stop in Minneapolis this fall.

Tickets for the Oct. 2 show at the Orpheum Theatre go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. and cost $63, $83 or $129, according to the Hennepin Theatre Trust website. Pre-sale tickets are available starting Wednesday.

"Pet Sounds" was originally released on May 16, 1966, and has been called one of the most influential albums ever made, Rolling Stone says, ranking No. 2 on the publication's list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin will join Wilson and his band to perform "Pet Sounds" in its entirety. They'll also play some top hits and fan favorites from Wilson's 54-year career, which started with The Beach Boys before he became a solo artist, Hennepin Theatre Trust says.

“It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago,” Wilson said in a news release. “I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world.”

The "Pet Sounds" 50th Anniversary World Tour begins in March in New Zealand, with the U.S. leg of the tour starting in June, and ending in California in October.
