Concert will take place in Los Angeles on March 30
Brandon Flowers, Norah Jones, Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino and the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Steve Drozd have been added to the line-up for a Brian Wilson tribute concert.
The show will take place at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre on March 30, to coincide with the release of the Beach Boys’ frontman’s 11th solo album ‘No Pier Pressure’.
Other acts on the bill include Ann Wilson, Joy Williams, Local Natives, Devandra Banhard, M. Ward, Al Jardine, Boz Scaggs, Capital Cities’ Sebu Simonian, Doyle Bramhall II, WilsonPhillips, Karen Elson, Jade Castrinos, Adam Busch and Danny Masterson, and Gingger Shankar.
The musicians will perform a selection of Brian Wilson covers, and all proceeds will go to the Sweet Relief Musician Fund, which provides financial assistance to musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability or age-related problems.
‘No Pier Pressure’ will be released April 7 via Capitol Records. The album features duets with a variety of artists including She & Him’s Zooey Deschanel, Simonian, Kacey Musgraves, and Fun’s Nate Reuss.
Last month, Wilson released a video for new song ‘The Right Time’, which features guest spots from fellow Beach Boys Al Jardine and David Marks. Both Jardine and Marks will feature on a number of other tracks on the forthcoming album album.
