Brian Wilson reveals details of brand new work

The legend will premiere the song cycle on UK tour

Brian Wilson has revealed details of the brand new work he is to premiere on a UK tour later this year.

The Beach Boys legend has called the piece ‘The Lucky Old Sun (a narrative)’ and says it “will consist of four ‘rounds’, with interspersed spoken word”.

Wilson, who will be backed on the dates by a 10-piece band, will also play a number of his classic songs that he has never performed live, as well as at least one song “in honour of a very important anniversary”.

The shows are at:

London Royal Festival Hall (September 10-16)

Bristol Colston Hall (18)

Bournemouth Opera House (20)

Edinburgh Festival Theatre (22)

Manchester Palace Theatre (23)

Birmingham Symphony Hall (24)
