Beach Boys coming to Augusta

  • Posted: Tuesday, May 27, 2014 12:13 p.m.

This summer, surf into this Augusta venue when this 1960s rock band rolls into town.

Presented by the American Red Cross of Augusta, The Beach Boys will be Celebrating 50 years of Fun, Fun, Fun at The Bell Auditorium, located at 712 Telfair St., on July 13.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the show will start at 7 p.m.

“To bring the Beach Boys to the CSRA, be a good community partner for American Red Cross of Augusta and host Hot Southern Night in The Bell Auditorium is a great opportunity,” said Chris Bird, Global Spectrum general manager. “Along with a portion of the proceeds, there will also be silent auction items at the concert that will benefit the local Red Cross chapter.”

The concert will feature Mike Love, lead vocals and founding Beach Boy; Bruce Johnston, vocals, keyboards and Beach Boy-vet; Christian Love, guitar and vocals; Randell Kirsch, bass and vocals; Tim Bonhomme, keyboards and vocals; John Cowsill, percussionist of The Cowsills and Scott Totten, guitar and vocals.

“It’s pretty miraculous that we can start out as a bunch of guys who didn’t know anything about fame or money, or anything like that,” Love said. “All we knew was we liked to sing and make harmonies together. So to have it become part of American musical culture is pretty amazing.”

Tickets of $99, $89, $59 and $49 will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.augustaentertainmentcomplex.com or call 1-877-428-4849.

The Beach Boys have appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand” and “The Tonight Show.”

The band has been around since 1961, and itt plans on releasing a new CD later this summer.
