Brian Wilson presents a 40th Anniversary Tribute to Pet Sounds
With special opening guest Scritti Politti
With its lushly layered melodies and its innovative mix of instruments both standard and exotic, Brian Wilson’s “pet project” went on to become what critics routinely call “the greatest album of all time.” Celebrating the 40th anniversary of this seminal record, former Beach Boy Brian Wilson and his band perform Pet Sounds from start to finish for the first time in five years, as well as other hits.
This evening of pure pop euphoria opens with Scritti Politti, back on stage after 26 years. Green Gartside, the enigmatic man behind Scritti Politti, became an international star in 1985 with his shimmering synth pop masterpiece Cupid & Psyche 85, featuring the irresistible hit, “Perfect Way.” Scritti Politti performs songs from their Mercury Prize-nominated White Bread Black Beer, their first album in seven years.
