Legendary songwriter Brian Wilson is back on tour, giving fans in the US and Europe one more chance to revel in his wondrous gift for creating endless harmonies and iconic melodies as he takes his landmark work with The Beach Boys, "Pet Sounds," back on the road. Wilson stopped by San Diego's Civic Theatre on Wednesday night, May 24 to deliver an uplifting and spirited performance featuring classic tunes such as "Help Me Rhonda," "Feel Flows," "Good Vibrations" and of course the "Pet Sounds" album played in its entirety and magnificently realized by his backing band, featuring Blondie Chaplin and founding member of The Beach Boys, Al Jardine.
