Harmonies. That’s what Christmas songs are all about for music legend Brian Wilson. From the seminal 1964 classic “The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album” to his acclaimed 2005 solo effort “What I Really Want for Christmas,” Wilson has brought Yuletide cheer to the world for more than five decades.
This season, Wilson and his crack band of musicians and vocalists, including Jardine and Chaplin, rock the stage with Christmas tunes. Fans can expect to hear Beach Boy classics Little Saint Nick, The Man With All the Toys, and a selection of Wilson’s favorite holiday songs including Blue Christmas and “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town.” Wilson will also perform songs from his critically acclaimed solo album “All I Really Want for Christmas.”
A co-founder of The Beach Boys and a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, Grammy winner Wilson is a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and a U.K. Music Hall of Fame inductee. The Beach Boys was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
