The Beach Boys Christmas on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 8pm at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The iconic group will perform their greatest hits and some Christmas favorites. Tickets range from $35-85.
For more than three decades, The Beach Boys have been one of America’s most beloved groups with a ton of hits including “Surfin’ USA,” “Kokomo,” “I Get Around,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” and “Good Vibrations.” With their signature tight harmonies and California style, the Boys are back with an evening of fan favorites and Christmas tunes including “Little Saint Nick.”
Line-up includes Mike Love (lead vocals), Bruce Johnston (keys, vocals), John Cowsill (drums, vocals), Tim Bonhomme (keys), Randell Kirsch (bass, vocals), Scott Totten (guitars, vocals), and Christian Love (guitars, vocals).
Captained by Mike Love, The Beach Boys play an astoundingly busy schedule of concerts, averaging 150 shows a year, ranging from their triumphal February appearance at the Winter Olympics to gala New Year’s celebrations and special events worldwide. In 1974, Mike Love’s concept album Endless Summer ignited a second generation of Beach Boys fans and stirred a tempest that rocked the music world.
Grammy®-winning songwriter Bruce Johnston (Barry Manilow’s “I Write the Songs”) joined The Beach Boys in 1965, replacing Glenn Campbell, who filled-in for Brian Wilson, on vocals/bass, when he retired from touring. Highly regarded as a singer-singer, Johnston’s vocal work with such legendary artists as Elton John and Pink Floyd firmly established him among rock’s elite artists.
