The Beach Boys to Play State Theatre, 9/26
For an iconic group that has come to symbolize surfin' in the California sun, The Beach Boys never seem to take time away from touring the entire country to do just that. With over a half century of iconic music and concerts under their belt, The Beach Boys return to the State Theatre, riding the wave of triple-platinum success and their 50th Anniversary a year ago.
The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards, while performing more concerts than any major rock band in history. Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys, Capitol/EMI's 30-track collection of the band's biggest hits, has achieved massive triple-platinum success with sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release in 2012.
Show time is Thursday, September 26 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $55 & $50 and can be purchased by visiting the State Theatre Box Office, 453 Northampton Street, Easton, by calling 1-800-999-STATE, 610-252-3132 or online at www.statetheatre.org. Sponsored by Unity Bank, Victaulic and Bazzini.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. Love, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is lead singer and a founding member of the group. Mike wrote the lyrics to The Beach Boys' first song, "Surfin'," released in 1961. He then co-authored eleven Top 10 singles in five years with cousin BrIan Wilson, a string of hits including "Fun, Fun, Fun," "I Get Around," "Help Me Rhonda," "California Girls" and "Good Vibrations." The period between "Good Vibrations" (1966) and The Beach Boys' biggest selling hit "Kokomo" (1988) is one of the longest spans of time between number one records in history. This feat demonstrates the ageless, timeless appeal of The Beach Boys.
