Joining Wilson and his band in concert will be former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. Concert-goers can expect to hear Pet Sounds in its entirety, as well as other hits taken from across Wilson's five-plus decade career.

Wilson's Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour will be making stops at multiple festivals this spring and summer, including Austin, Texas' Levitation Festival in April and Barcelona, Spain's Primavera Festival in June. Apparently, these concerts will be the final time Brian Wilson will be playing Pet Sounds in its entirety. Pet Sounds is widely considered one of the greatest albums of all time.
