Hollywood, CA (September 16, 2013)—Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck recently convened at Hollywood's Ocean Way recording studios prior to their upcoming co-headlining tour, working with producer Joe Thomas, Wilson's music director Jeffrey Foskett, and engineers Frank Pappalardo and Wesley Seidman.
Wilson and Beck will kick off their co-headlining North American tour on September 28 in Tampa, FL, joined by Wilson's Beach Boys band mates Al Jardine and David Marks. The foursome will open the show together with both of their respective bands performing a string of hits. From "Little Deuce Coupe" to "Custom Machine," the show will then focus on eclectic selections from Wilson's vast repertoire, covering 50 years of classics along with music from his rich solo catalogue.
Beck will open the second half of the show backed by a four-piece rhythm section to perform selections from his solo career. He will be joined by Wilson, Jardine and Marks, who will add their distinctive harmonies to some of Beck's classics. All four will once again join together for a finale that will bring together both bands again to run through their favorite songs from their youth and for the first time ever, some classic Yardbirds material.
