Beach Boys Legend Brian Wilson Returns to Honolulu and HPR's ATC


When you think of music legends, few artists embody that term like Beach Boys icon Brian Wilson, who tonight returns to the Aloha State at the Blaisdell Concert Hall with the Pet Sounds 50th anniversary world tour, his first public Hawaii appearance since 2002. From the voice, to the pioneering songwriting and production to his family legacy, the notoriously reclusive artist has truly earned the term “legend”. Hawaii Public Radio All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomed him back for his third appearance on HPR's ATC.
