Brian Wilson Lines Up New CD, Web Site, Tour

Rock legend Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys will be kicking off a rare concert tour on July 7 in Easton, Pennsylvania, and he will be joined by local symphony orchestras on select dates to perform his group's classic 1966 album, "Pet Sounds" in its entirety.

Wilson's summer tour coincides with the release of a double CD, "Live At The Roxy Theatre," and the launch of his official Web site, www.brianwilson.com, which is selling the new album.

Last year, Wilson surfaced to perform along with Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkin members Billy Corgan and James Iha, Sheryl Crow, and Green Day, among others, at Neil Young's benefit concert for the Bridge School (See "Pearl Jam, Sheryl Crow, Billy Corgan, Brian Wilson, More Sign On For Bridge School Benefit").
