Beach Boys to play in Augusta in July

Concert to benefit American Red Cross of Augusta
The Beach Boys' Mike Love is the only original member of the band who is touring.

 

The Beach Boys will get around to Augusta this July for a show that will benefit the American Red Cross of Augusta.

The concert is planned for 7 p.m. Sunday, July 13, at Bell Auditorium.

Tickets start at $49 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, May 30, at the James Brown Arena box office, by phone at 877-4AUGTIX and online at georgialinatix.com.

The Beach Boys – with original band member Mike Love – are celebrating 50 years of hits, including Fun Fun Fun, Surfin’ U.S.A., I Get Around, Help Me Rhonda, California Girls and Good Vibrations.

“To bring the Beach Boys to the CSRA, be a good community partner for American Red Cross of Augusta, and host Hot Southern Night in the Bell Auditorium is a great opportunity,” Global Spectrum General Manager Chris Bird said in a press release.

“Along with a portion of the proceeds, there will also be silent auction items at the concert that will benefit the local Red Cross chapter.”

In addition to founding Beach Boy Love (lead vocals) and Beach Boy-veteran Bruce Johnston (vocals/keyboards), Christian Love (guitar/vocals), Randell Kirsch (bass/vocals), Tim Bonhomme (keyboards/vocals), John Cowsill of The Cowsills (percussion /vocals) and Scott Totten (guitar/vocals) round out the band.
