Beach Boys bring their hits to the Royal Theatre, Nov. 10

 

 

Victoria’s Royal Theatre will be filled with Good Vibrations when one of the most legendary bands in pop music history takes to the stage on November 10.The Beach Boys have been inspiring dreams of catching waves and soaking in the California sun for 50 years, and continue to delight audiences with a busy touring schedule that sees them performing around the world for adoring fans young and old.One need only hear the first few notes of Kokomo, Surfin’ Safari, Don’t Worry Baby, or Wouldn’t it be Nice? to be reminded of the impact the Beach Boys have had on popular culture, as well as the incredible music they have created over many decades. Over the years, the Beach Boys have played Live Aid, Farm Aid, the Super Bowl and the White House. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and in 2012 toured the world for their 50th anniversary and to support their latest album That’s Why God Made the Radio.The current iteration of the band features founding member Mike Love (lead singer on such tracks as Fun, Fun, Fun and California Girls) and Grammy-winning songwriter Bruce Johnston, who has been with the group since 1965, along with a full band of renowned musicians. Tickets can be purchased at the MacPherson box office by phone at 250-386-6121 or online at rmts.bc.ca.
