Brian Wilson/Zombies tour

Postby Mike Boom » 07 May 2019, 17:37

https://pitchfork.com/news/brian-wilson-and-the-zombies-announce-tour/

Wilson will be joined on stage by former Beach Boys bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin.
He’ll primarily perform songs from the two Beach Boys albums: 1968’s Friends and 1971’s Surf’s Up.

The Zombies will open each show with a full performance of their seminal 1968 record, Odessey and Oracle.

Thanks!

I usually consider Friends my favorite Beach Boys album and I've really been enjoying that new archival release of outtakes. I thought I was over seeing BW live, but this has me excited.



Plus from what I understand, Colin Blunstone's voice is still in good shape, somehow.

When I saw "Zombies," I was thinking maybe Carl and Dennis were back in the band.

When I saw BW and friends do Pet sounds two summers ago, he didn't look much more compos mentis than an extra from Night of the Living Dead himself.

More than two years later, he and his band still seem to be touring pretty much non-stop.

Not sure whether this is a case of BW himself wanting to stay on the road or his being pushed into doing so by those around him.

Much as I love Surfs Up and Friends, I think I'll be passing on this if it makes it to the UK.

I wonder will Darian Sahanaja be playing in both bands - he played on the Zombies most recent O&O tour. I really hope it makes it over this side of the world

I saw BW on the SMiLE tour and the Zombies about 10 years ago and thought I didn’t need to see either act again, but ... Friends! Oddly tempting!

Thanks for the heads-up!

I went back and forth on whether to go. I’ve seen both multiple times. But I finally relented. I figured that I’ll never regret the ticket price, but I might kick myself later for skipping one more chance to be in the presence of so many of my musical heroes.
