The Beach Boys To Play At Bryce Jordan Center on Oct. 29

Amazing news on this 4th of July: Rock legends The Beach Boys are playing at the Bryce Jordan Center at 8 p.m. on Oct. 29.

The Beach Boys are, without a question, my favorite band of all-time. Inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, their unique sound goes hand-in-hand with the feeling of summer, and their “Pet Sounds” album was ranked the No. 2 rock album ever by Rolling Stone. Their hits, from “Good Vibrations” to “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” are household tunes all over the country. Unfortunately, the band was marred by break-ups and drama during the late 1970s, and couldn’t stay away from similar issues even after some reunions. Now, the only member of the original five Beach Boys that will appear on this tour is vocalist Mike Love — two of the Wilson brothers have passed away, while the legendary Brian Wilson and Al Jardine have returned to solo careers.

The Beach Boys also came to the Bryce Jordan Center in September 2006. Tickets start at $45, but a reserved number for students will cost $20 thanks to UPAC funding. They can be purchased here.
