Brian Wilson announces a November tour to 11 U.S. cities,
performing his new Capitol/EMI album, That
Lucky Old Sun, in its entirety. Wilson and his band will
also perform many of his classic hits at the special shows. The tour begins in Nashville on November 10 and will continue to 10 more
cities, including New York, Chicago,
Boston and Washington,
DC, before ending in Westbury, NY
on November 25.
On September 12, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and
City Councilmembers Tom LaBonge and Jack Weiss honored Brian Wilson before a
standing-room-only crowd at Los Angeles
City Hall for his “unique and
unparalleled contributions” to Los Angeles and California culture.
Following several heartfelt speeches and some dancing in the chamber’s aisles
to his sun-splashed hits, Wilson
was presented with a special Brian Wilson Day proclamation by Mayor
Villaraigosa and Councilmembers LaBonge and Weiss.
During a recent visit to the U.K., Wilson and four of his
band members piled into a London cab with a camera crew for “Black Cab
Sessions,” a one-take performance filmed en route through the city. To watch

On October 10,
NPR’s “World Café,” carried by nearly 200 public radio stations across the
country, will premiere an exclusive performance by Wilson and his band, featuring a mix of songs
from That Lucky Old Sun and classic
hits. The program will also be available for streaming at www.npr.org.
