Brian Wilson will soon begin a world tour to celebrate and perform the iconic album "Pet Sounds" in honor of its 50th anniversary. The album was originally released on May 16, 1966, and, although it was not recognized as such at the time it was released, Pet Sounds is now thought to be one of the greatest albums of all time.
About the tour, Brian Wilson comments on his website:
“It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago,” says Wilson. “I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world.”
Brian Wilson's extensive association with Glen Campbell goes way back to the sixties. Glen was not only a session musician for The Beach Boys, he filled in for Brian Wilson and toured with the boys in 1965. Pet Sounds is just one of the Boys' timeless productions on which Glen Campbell played guitar. Glen has always had the greatest respect for Wilson's genius as a songwriter.
