The Beach Boys coming to the Straz Center in Tampa
Score one for the David J. Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, which just landed one of the musical coups of the year.
The Beach Boys, who are reuniting for a 50th anniversary tour in 2012, are coming to the Straz Center on May 5, the venue announced today. Tickets start at $49.50, and they'll go onsale at noon Feb. 24, and you can expect them to go fast. You can also get VIP tickets with a meet and greet, soundcheck access, merchandise and more for $295.50. Click here for details.
You may have caught Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks onstage at the Grammys this week, where they performed Good Vibrations with Maroon 5 and Foster the People. It was a more than solid performance, considering these guys haven't shared such a prominent stage together in decades. And if this show is anything like Wilson's solo show last August, we're in for a treat.
If you're interested in catching a wave and taking your little deuce coupe on the road, the Beach Boys are also performing in St. Augustine on May 2 and Hollywood on May 4.
