The Beach Boys

I don’t need to tell you who they are.

Whether you’re a fresh Gen Z-er or an OG Boomer, you have listened to at least one song by The Beach Boys. I don’t know if it’s even possible to avoid it. And if you’ve somehow managed to make it through life not hearing their California vibes, you have at least heard their name.

The classic band has been riding the wave for more than 60 years of making music, blessing us for decades with summer anthems we throw on the speakers as soon as the sun comes out and the temperatures start to rise.

The Beach Boys at Merrill Auditorium in Portland

The boys will be kicking off Spring for us Mainers this coming Friday, April 1 at the Merrill Auditorium. As part of their “Sixty Years of Sounds of Summer” tour, they will be making yet another stop in the Pine State.

According to Waterfront Concerts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history. Fair warning, though: This concert will not be featuring Brian Wilson, AI Jardine, or David Marks.

The concert is coming up quickly so you’ll want to get your tickets now through PortTIX. Since it is at Merrill Auditorium, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is required, so plan in advance.

The Beach Boys in Maine

This will be one of MANY concerts in Maine by The Beach Boys. After more than sixty years and hundreds of concerts, they have made their way to our coast many, many times. From Colby College in 1973 to Presque Isle in 1990, Bangor in 2012, and Maine State Pier in 2016, just to name a few.

They will once again be blessing us with their presence but it's coming up quick so don't miss out!

Have you seen them before or will this be a first?
