The Grammy Award-winning and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band The Beach Boys today announced they will bring their iconic Southern Californian sound to several cities across the east coast and Midwest this winter for their 2022 holiday tour, “Tis the Season with The Beach Boys featuring The Holiday Vibrations Orchestra.” 

Kicking off Nov. 26 at the Premier Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, the tour will make 15 more stops, including a concert on Dec. 9 at Shea’s Buffalo Theatre. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 7. For ticket information, visit thebeachboys.com, mikelove.com and sheas.org.

Shea’s Performing Arts Center is located 646 Main St., Buffalo.

The 2022 holiday tour will feature a mix of holiday classics from The Beach Boys’ 1964 Christmas album as well as songs from The Beach Boys co-founder and lead singer Mike Love’s holiday album, “Reason for the Season.” Featuring an array of new holiday songs and Christmas classics ranging from bright guitar and horn-filled pop and rock and track to softer traditional carols and ballads, “Reason for the Season” was produced by Sam Hollander (One Direction, Panic! at the Disco, Train) and Steve Greenberg (Hanson, AJR). It features artists including Hanson as well as Love’s children Ambha, Brian, Christian and Hayleigh Love.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of the opening of the Morrison Hotel Gallery’s Good Vibrations” exhibit honoring The Beach Boys and their first decade.

A press release said, “The exhibit – which opened Sept. 28 at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles – not only celebrates The Beach Boys’ enduring and iconic legacy, but it also shines a light on some brilliant photographers who shot the group early on, capturing the Beach Boys superstar essence. The collection will showcase 30 not previously released images, as well as a very limited co-signed edition of only 10 prints, which have been signed by Mike Love, Al Jardine, Brian Wilson and Bruce Johnston. For additional details, visit the gallery's official site.

The Beach Boys also recently announced “Sail On Sailor – 1972,” a new, expansive multidisc and digital box set releasing Nov. 18 via Capitol Records/Ume. Produced by Mark Linett and Alan Boyd – the team behind 2013’s Grammy Award-winning “SMiLE Sessions” and last year’s acclaimed “Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971” – the box set documents and dives deep into their transformative and fruitful 1972 era.

The comprehensive six-CD super deluxe edition features newly remastered versions of Carl and the Passions – “So Tough” and Holland, plus Holland’s “Mount Vernon and Fairway (A Fairytale)” EP (complete with its original instructions to “please listen in the dark”). It boasts an unreleased live concert recorded at NYC’s famed Carnegie Hall on Thanksgiving 1972, the first-ever release of a complete Beach Boys concert from this era with the original setlist. The set also includes a bounty of unreleased outtakes, live recordings, radio promos, alternate versions, alternate mixes, isolated backing tracks and a-cappella versions, culled from the historic album sessions. In all, it contains 105 tracks, 80 of which are previously unreleased.

Upcoming, The Beach Boys will embark on the second voyage of “The Beach Boys Good Vibrations Cruise,” presented by Club Kokomo Spirits, sailing March 3-8, 2023, from Miami to Harvest Caye, Belize and Costa Maya, Mexico, aboard the Norwegian Pearl. The second sailing of “The Beach Boys Good Vibrations Cruise” will feature live music on the open seas from sunup to sundown, across several stages and settings throughout the ship, including two unique shows from The Beach Boys and performances by a lineup of special guests to be announced soon.

In addition, the specially curated schedule of events offers a variety of music-centered activities and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for cruisers to interact with some of their favorite artists. Beyond the onboard experience, cruisers will have the chance to explore and enjoy the serene beach on the private island of Harvest Caye, Belize and the local culture and blue waters in Costa Maya, Mexico.
