All thoughts were of the beach, surfing, t-birds, summer love and having fun, fun, fun at an announcement made in Liverpool, NS today! International recording stars The Beach Boys will be performing at Queens Place Emera Centre in Liverpool, NS on June 30, 2016.
“The Beach Boys are the ideal kick off for the summer season in Liverpool. Queens is the silver sand beach capital of Nova Scotia,” said Christopher Clarke, Mayor of the Region of Queens Municipality. “Known for such songs as “Surfing Safari”, “Surf City USA” and “Surfer Girl”, The Beach Boys have made beach life a theme for many of their popular hits. We extend a warm Queens County welcome to Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and the members of the Beach Boys, as well as their many fans in the Maritimes to come and enjoy the concert, and to live the beach boy or beach girl experience by coming down to where the beaches are.”
Many bands can be measured by the number of hits they have had, or how many millions of albums they have sold, but The Beach Boys’ impact surpasses those traditional measures. With album sales over the 100 million mark and such memorable chart topping hits as “Surfing USA”, “California Girls”, “Kokomo”, “Help Me Rhonda” and many more, The Beach Boys have attained musical heights that few bands can claim. Formed in the mid-1960s, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with a youthful vitality, imagination and signature style for over 50 years, and are still going strong, performing more than 150 concerts each year. Known for their concert presence, energy, spirit and outstanding performances, The Beach Boys are a must-see live show.
“The Beach Boys are iconic musicians, and we are pleased to have a band of this stature take the stage at Queens Place Emera Centre,” said Steve Burns, General Manager of Queens Place Emera Centre. “There are only two stops in the Maritimes on this tour, and we are thrilled to be one of them. We expect that there will be a full house at Queens Place Emera Centre on June 30. What better way to get ready for the Canada Day long weekend than to get those “Good Vibrations” going!”
