Legendary songwriter Brian Wilson began his career as a teenaged founding member of The Beach Boys, who signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes. Wilson’s innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements for major hits including “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” and the No. 1 smash “Good Vibrations” established The Beach Boys as America’s preeminent band of the 1960s.

In 1965, with The Beach Boys out on tour, Wilson began session work on some of the most deeply personal recordings of his career. Inspired by The Beatles’ Rubber Soul, he challenged himself to create an immaculate musical masterpiece. A vast departure from the then band’s commercial sound, the resulting Pet Sounds “concept album” achieved great critical success helping usher in a new musical landscape.

Wilson has also achieved great success as a solo artist with 11 of his own albums released to-date, including his acclaimed 2004 completion of an album he first began recording in the ‘60s, Brian Wilson Presents… SMiLE. The album earned Wilson his first GRAMMY® for a recording, which was followed by his second GRAMMY® win for producing The Beach Boys’ acclaimed 2011 release, The SMiLE Sessions. With his own band, Wilson has performed major, sold-out tours in recent years, and with The Beach Boys he celebrated the iconic band’s 50th anniversary in 2012 with a major international tour and acclaimed studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio.

The Zombies
Iconic British psychedelic pop legends The Zombies ​have returned to celebrate their long-awaited Induction into ​The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. ​After receiving their 4th nomination in five years, the support for The Zombies’ induction among the public and their peers was undeniable – the band placed 4th in the public online poll with over 330,000 votes, while even fellow nominee John Prine called for their induction before his own in a Billboard interview. On March 29, 2019 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, The Zombies joined Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, and Roxy Music as the 2019 Class of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Fittingly, the Induction Ceremony (which will be broadcasted on HBO) took place exactly 50 years to-the-day after The Zombies’ classic ​“Time of the Season”​ first hit #1 on the charts in America.

    When I was a small boy in the mid- 70s, I attended my first 2 concerts: Both were the Beach Boys. I have loved both the Zombies and the Beach Boys for the duration of my life.

  30. BodhBen June 5, 2019 at 6:37 pm #

    Being an original beach boy myself (I grew up in Santa Cruz), the Beach Boys were my favorite band, hands down. The Zombies tugged my heartstrings later with many of their tunes as well. Eventually I learned I was going to private school with a kid, named Jaime, whose step-dad (last name Gray) played drums with the Beach Boys awhile. I recently narrowly avoided dying in an extremely fast fall, and I have my ability to relax to thank for being able to do some REALLY fast thinking last minute. I have the Beach Boys to thank for an extremely well developed sense of how to relax amidst life’s challenges. Brian Wilson with the Zombies would be a Bucket List life check-off for sure. Hang loose amigos!

  31. Kevin B June 5, 2019 at 7:43 pm #

    I’d love to invite my dad to this!

  32. SK June 5, 2019 at 7:45 pm #

    Whoever wins will enjoy a magical evening. Maybe my guest and me!

  33. Josh June 5, 2019 at 8:10 pm #

    This would be an amazing show to see.

  34. Cara June 6, 2019 at 10:28 am #

    Epic! Legends!

  35. Paul June 6, 2019 at 11:04 am #

    Seeing this show would be beyond amazing. Thanks for the chance!!

    • Andrea K June 11, 2019 at 5:45 pm #

      I’m hoping to see The Zombies apocalypse…
      I read the other day that the tour was being postponed bc BW is ill?

      If you win you can take me.

  36. Gary June 6, 2019 at 1:29 pm #

    Odessey and Oracle by the Zombies is one of my favorite records ever made and would be thrilled to see them live. Brian Wilson is a good bonus too! Please pick me!

    Oh man, even though I was born in the late 80’s, I’ve been a fan of the Beach Boys for as long as I can remember, singing along when they came on the radio on the old KISN station we had here in Portland. This would be such an amazing treat to take my mom to, who exposed me to both the Beach Boys and The Zombies!!

  53. Denae June 11, 2019 at 2:19 pm #
