Brian Wilson and rock band Chicago have revealed a co-headlining U.S. tour in 2022.
The tour kicks off in Phoenix in June 2022 and concludes in Clarkston, Michigan at the end of July.
For his sets, Willson will be joined by South African singer Blondie Chaplin and fellow Beach Boys co-founder Al Jardine. Coincidentally, Jardine, along with late Beach Boys co-founders Carl and Dennis Wilson sang backing vocals on Chicago’s 1974 single “Wishing You Were Here.”
In 1975, Chicago and the Beach Boys also embarked on the Beachago Tour together, and toured together again in 1989.
Chicago, who will play a six-date run of shows at the Venetian Resort Hotel in Las Vegas February 2022, most recently released their 25th album Chicago Christmas in 2019.
Now 79, Wilson recently released the album At My Piano, a collection of new instrumental re-recordings of Wilson’s songs played on piano. Wilson also wrote “Right Where I Belong” with My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James for the soundtrack to the documentary Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road, covering the life and times of the Beach Boys co-founder.
