They’ve sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide; toured the world countless times; played live to millions and now The Beach Boys are headed to Montrose.
Regarded as the most iconic American band, and one of the most critically acclaimed, The Beach Boys will close the 10th anniversary Montrose Music Festival on Sunday, May 28.
Taking to the stage outdoors, on the East Links, Montrose, The Beach Boys will perform some of their greatest hits and fan favourites from their 50-year career, including Good Vibrations; Surfin USA; Barbara Ann; Fun Fun Fun; and Wouldn’t It Be Nice.
Following The Beach Boys’ show, the Montrose Music Festival, which in 2017 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, will come to a close with a fireworks display on the East Links, for show goers.
Led by co-founder, principal lyricist and recently New York Times best-selling author Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band.
Announcing the show, The Beach Boys’ Mike Love, said: “It’s great that 50 years plus we’re still in a position to be touring and sharing our music with fans around the world.
