The Beach Boys have announced a one-off London show for 2022.

The iconic group will take to the stage at the historic Royal Albert Hall on June 24 as part of their ‘Sixty Years Of The Sounds Of Summer’ tour. Tickets go on general sale this Friday (December 10) at 9am GMT – get yours here.

Mike Love and Bruce Johnston lead the band’s current line-up, which does not feature Brian Wilson and Al Jardine. Other musicians involved include musical director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Keith Hubacher.

Wilson and Jardine, meanwhile, are set to hit the road for the former’s US co-headline tour with Chicago next summer. They’ll also be joined on stage by former Beach Boy Blondie Chaplin.

Back in August, The Beach Boys shared an unreleased a capella version of ‘Surf’s Up’ and a reworking of ‘Sunflower’ track ‘This Whole World’. Both appear on the band’s 2021 box set ‘Feel Flows – The Sunflower & Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971’.

The group are currently touring in the US, and are scheduled to perform in Oxford, Alabama on Friday. A run of European concerts will begin in June, including the newly announced London gig. You can find the full list of dates here.

Billy Hinsche, a longtime touring member of The Beach Boys, died last month aged 70. He had been diagnosed with giant cell carcinoma “a couple [of] weeks” prior, per a statement.

Mike Love shared a message of tribute on Twitter, writing: “We lost a great friend, family member, and forever member of The Beach Boys band on Saturday.

“We’ll miss him greatly, especially his family members will feel his loss most deeply. All of us who had the pleasure of knowing him will miss his jovial nature and immense talent and sense of humor. Billy was a loving son to his mother Celia who incredibly passed Saturday as well.”
