Brian Wilson and the Zombies are coming together for a concert this September at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio.
Tickets for the show, which will take place Sunday, September 1st at 8 pm go on sale this Friday, May 10 – with prices ranging from $49 to $89.
Wilson and his longtime band will are expected to perform selections from two of his favorite Beach Boys albums — Friends (1968) and Surf’s Up (1971) — as well as rare gems and the biggest hits of his storied career, including “God Only Knows,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” and “Heroes and Villains.” Wilson will be joined by longtime Beach Boys Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin.
“It’s been quite a year and I’m ready to go out and tour some music that makes everyone have a feel-good vibe,” said Wilson. “The Friends album has always been one of my favorites, and I love the music from that time in history… I’m psyched to go out with The Zombies, who have some of the best harmonies ever.”
The Zombies are celebrating their recent induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame alongside Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, and Roxy Music. Featuring co-founders Rod Argent (keyboards, vocals), Colin Blunstone (lead vocals), and Hugh Grundy (drums), as well as classic era bassist Christ White, the band will perform their seminal 1968 album Odessey & Oracle in its entirety, including the smash “Time of the Season,” plus earlier hits “She’s Not There,” “Tell Her No,” and “She’s Coming Home.”
“For at least the last five years, we’ve expressed the thought to our management that a tour with Brian Wilson would feel to us pretty much like the perfect pairing,” said Argent. “Now it’s something we’re actually able to look forward to, and with a great deal of excitement. We’ll be performing Odessey & Oracle in its entirety, with all remaining originals plus expanded forces, so that every note from the original album will be reproduced! Roll on autumn — we can’t wait!”
