Beach Boys legends Brian Wilson has announced the UK leg of his Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary tour.
Wilson is touring the bands seminal 11th studio album for the final time this year, and will play ten UK dates in the process – including two nights at the London Palladium.

It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago. I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world.
The UK leg of the Pet Sounds tour begins in Bristol on 15 May and will see Wilson play gigs in Birmingham, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool and Nottingham.
