Brian Wilson refunding unsatisfied fans after gig

Former Beach Boy wants to keep fans 'cool'

Brian Wilson refunding unsatisfied fans after gig
Brian Wilson has offered to refund fan who were unsatisfied with a recent show in New York City, after seeing their comments on his website.

The former Beach Boy and his manager-wife Melinda Wilson responded to unhappy concert-goers after the ‘Stand Up For A Cure’ charity benefit at Hammerstein Ballroom last week (July 11) during which Wilson only played for 75 minutes.

Some tickets for the show cost several hundred dollars, but patrons complained of bad visibility and the fact that Wilson did not play with a full band. They were also unhappy with his choice of songs, reports

Melinda Wilson announced on that fans who were unhappy could send their ticket stubs to the Wilson’s publicist who would reimburse them.

Her message read:

"Brian saw the posts and asked me to respond. He's really sensitive to all of your feelings and doesn't want to offend anyone. He wanted to make this offer to keep everyone cool (as he said)…”

Meanwhile, Brian Wilson plays a free show at Coney Island tonight (July 18), and she recommends that the unhappy fans “take advantage of that.”
