FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, MELBOURNE, FL –
The King Center for the Performing Arts along with AEG Presents are excited to announce Emmy nominated actor and producer, John Stamos to join The Beach Boys LIVE at the King Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, March 1st at 7:30 PM. Tickets are currently on sale at King Center.com!
For Stamos – who will be joining The Beach Boys on Wednesday, March 1st at the King Center, it represents another opportunity to step on stage with the band he grew up idolizing. His first concert, in his early teen years, was a Beach Boys show. Stamos, 59, formed a friendship with the group during his days as an actor on “General Hospital” and has frequently collaborated with them since, making appearances on their tours, including this past year at venues such as Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Stamos has particularly fond memories of filming a Season Two episode with The Beach Boys in which the Tanner family joins the group onstage at a concert after D.J. wins a radio contest. He specifically recalls the scene in which The Beach Boys and the Tanners are singing “Kokomo” in the Tanners’ living room, transitioning into footage of the band performing it in concert.
“We are excited to have The Beach Boys “back at the beach” where they can feel at home here on the Space Coast of Florida, at the King Center. The welcomed addition of John Stamos, performing live on stage with the band, is sure to be a treat for all planning to come!” Bob Papke – G.M. King Center for the Performing Arts & V.P. of Theatres ASM Global
As The Beach Boys mark more than a half century of making music, the group continues to ride the crest of a wave unequalled in America’s musical history. The Beach Boys – who have become synonymous with the California lifestyle and an American icon, are bringing their shows to fans around the world.
Since the band’s co-founder, lead-singer and chief lyricist Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the bands chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “Kokomo.”
The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers were also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award. With more than five decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.
Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys, Capitol/EMI’s 30-track collection of the band’s biggest hits, has achieved triple-platinum success with sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love, who, along with longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher and Randy Leago continue the legacy of the iconic band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.
Tickets for The Beach Boys are currently on sale online at KingCenter.com and during regular operating hours at the King Center Ticket Office from Noon – 6 PM, Monday – Friday or by calling 321-242-2219.
