TICKETING APOLOGY:

The Kiva Auditorium has an exclusive contract with Ticketmaster for ticketing.  They used to have an open contract and we were able to use our regular ticket provider - the locally-based Hold My Ticket.  We have exceptional service from Hold My Ticket and people's experiences were uniformly strong.  Now that we are on Ticketmaster, we have had a host of problems.  One thing to be aware of is that their service goes down nightly sometime between 12 and 3 am for system maintenance.  So if you are buying late night, just try again later and it will work.  We have been filing regular complaints with the Convention Center about the poor service Ticketmaster has been providing our customers.  If you have trouble buying tickets, please let us know.  You can also contact the Box Office person at the Kiva to buy tickets over the phone or to complain.  Her number is 
(505) 573-0758.   

In 1965, with the Beach Boys out on tour, Brian Wilson [website | Amazon.com] began session work on some of the most deeply personal recordings of his career. Inspired by The Beatles' Rubber Soul, he challenged himself to create an immaculate musical masterpiece. A vast departure from the band's then-commercial sound, the resulting "concept album" Pet Sounds achieved great critical success helping usher in a new musical landscape and hit the Top 10 in the US while topping the charts in the UK.

"It's really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago," says Wilson. "I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world."

Brian Wilson is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures, a legendary writer, producer, arranger and performer of some of the most cherished music in pop music history. For more than half a century, fans have marveled at the sheer beauty of the music that springs forth from his imagination into glorious song. Wilson brings this ingenious vision to his own compositions, as well as to those for which he has collaborated, weaving a lush, vibrant tapestry of intricately nuanced vocal harmonies and instrumental arrangements for himself, his bandmates and others.

Wilson began his career as a teenaged founding member of The Beach Boys, who signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin' Safari, that same year. The band's initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes. Wilson's innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements for major hits including "I Get Around," "California Girls," "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "God Only Knows," and the No. 1 smash "Good Vibrations" made The Beach Boys America's preeminent band of the 1960s.

Wilson has also achieved great solo success with 11 of his own albums released to date, including his acclaimed 2004 completion of an album he first began recording in the 60s, Brian Wilson Presents... SMiLE.  The album earned Wilson his first GRAMMY® for a recording, which was followed by his second GRAMMY® win for producing The Beach Boys' acclaimed 2011 release, The SMiLE Sessions. With his own band, Wilson has performed major, sold-out tours in recent years, and with The Beach Boys, he celebrated the iconic band's 50th anniversary in 2012 with a major international tour and acclaimed studio album, That's Why God Made The Radio.

In 2015, Wilson released his latest solo album No Pier Pressure (Capitol) and was the subject of the critically acclaimed, award-winning biopic "Love & Mercy." Directed by Bill Pohlad, starring John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, "Love & Mercy" presents an unconventional portrait of the music legend. Set against the era-defining catalog of the music, the film intimately examines the personal voyage and ultimate salvation of the icon whose success came at extraordinary personal cost. The culmination of these projects produced Wilson's first Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song (Motion Picture) for his song "One Kind Of Love" featured in the film.

Brian Wilson is a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and a U.K. Music Hall of Fame inductee.  As a member of The Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.

Fans can expect a live performance of Pet Sounds in its entirety, as well as top hits and fan favorites spanning his 54-year career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist.
