The Beach Boys continue to ‘Get Around’ around this summer, after reuniting the classic line-up including Brian Wilson for their new orchestral release, the legendary vocal group will do an exclusive Q&A session on their SiriusXM channel, Good Vibrations on 10 August.
The town hall style session will be moderated by director Rob Reiner, who appeared in the 2005 documentary and concert film, Brian Wilson Presents Smile and will air 5 pm EST/PST on SiriusXM in the US, Puerto Rico and Canada.
The session will take place at the Capitol Records Tower in Los Angeles, an iconic location, where the Beach Boys recorded some of their earliest material. This live appearance of the group’s surviving members is their first since 2012, when they celebrated their 50th anniversary tour.
“The entire The Beach Boys band and organization is looking forward to this SiriusXM Town Hall”, said Beach Boys’ manager Jerry Schilling. “It will be an historic event, as five band members gather for a conversation with their fans and Rob Reiner”.
The founding members Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine and David Marks, as well as longtime Beach Boy Bruce Johnston will answer fan questions about their remarkable career and their new album, The Beach Boys with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra that coupled their classic vocal recordings with newly-written symphonic arrangements by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
As Wilson previously told uDiscover, “I never thought that an orchestra like the RPO would be playing my songs. They embellished our harmonies and made it sound better than the original records!”
Since their historic tour, many of the group’s members have toured regularly and released music. Wilson released his solo album, No Pier Pressure, in 2015 and celebrated the golden anniversary of their seminal record, Pet Sounds, performing the classic album all over the world at over 185 shows since 2016. He also recently announced a holiday tour, that sees Wilson, along with Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, performing The Beach Boys Christmas Album in its entirety.
