World’s greatest Beach Boys tribute band announces NZ tour
Fresh from their sold out world tour including Australia, France, London and Holland (to name a few) The Bootleg Beach Boys today announce a 20-venue tour of New Zealand this July and August.
A fully costumed show that takes you right from the very beginning of The Beach Boys and through their career will feature classic hits and cult favourites from California's most famous band.
From surf themed anthems such as Surfin' Safari & Surfer Girl to muscle car memorables like Shut Down & Fun Fun Fun, the band have gathered a truly impressive repertoire of West Coast, harmony-laden songs, that evoke the spirit and essence of the pursuit of the 1960s American dream.
The band tackle such classics as In My Room, God Only Knows, Good Vibrations and Help Me Rhonda in their hit heavy set, but also pay homage to the genius of Brian Wilson in the form of selections from the seminal Pet Sounds, and cult favourites from the legendary Smile album.
This blend of five vocals and infectious sun-soaked gems makes for a memorable night to celebrate some of the finest music committed to tape over four decades.
