“So useless. I miss Europe. I miss London and the whole of the UK …. my second home”
Brian Wilson has postponed the dates of his upcoming UK tour due to COVID restrictions, and announced a co-headlining US run with Chicago.
The former Beach Boys frontman was set to embark on the UK leg of his Good Vibration Greatest Hits Tour, which sees him playing with former bandmates Al Jardin and Blondie Chaplin in the summer of 2022.

With the shows already being rescheduled once, now that they have been pushed back again, the rescheduled dates are yet to be announced.
“We are deeply saddened that we have to once again extend our tour overseas due to the ever-changing and challenging issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic,” Wilson said in a statement.
“Me and the guys were all looking forward to seeing, having great food and performing. But routing is impossible and with the need to keep our touring group safe we need to postpone. Such crap. I miss Europe . I miss London and the whole of the UK…. my second home. Send good vibes that we will be out of this soon. Stay safe everyone.”
Instead, the following summer Wilson, Jardine and Chaplin will embark on a US co-headlining tour with Chicago, which begins in early June and runs through the end of July.

Last month, Wilson released new documentary Brian Wilson: The Long Promised Road and a solo album titled ‘At My Piano’, both shared on 19 November. His 11th solo studio album features re-imaginings of classic tracks from Wilson’s extensive discography.
Back in August, the Beach Boys shared two unreleased songs, including an unreleased a cappella version of “Surfs Up.” The two tracks were taken from the band’s recent box set, ‘Feel Flow – The Sunflower and Surfs Up Sessions 1969–1971’.
