In a collaborative move of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-sized proportions, Chicago will embark on a co-headlining tour with Brian Wilson next summer. The “rock and roll band with horns” and the Beach Boys founder will kick off their 25-date US tour in June 2022.
Unless you were going to gigs in the 1970s, this upcoming tour marks maybe one of the only times you’ll be able to hear Chicago’s hits like “Make Me Smile” and “25 or 6 to 4” alongside some Wilson/Beach Boys classics in a live capacity. And, to make things even more exciting, Wilson will be accompanied on stage by fellow Beach Boys members Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin.
Tickets go on this Friday, December 3rd, at 10:00 a.m. local time, and you can get yours via Ticketmaster. See the tour schedule below.
Wilson’s career was recently chronicled in the documentary, Long Promised Road. In addition to many well-known songs, the film’s soundtrack includes “Right Where I Belong,” a new collaboration between Wilson and My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James. Wilson also recently released At My Piano, featuring reimaginings of Beach Boys classics.
