Beach Boys coming to Williamsport

WILLIAMSPORT — The Beach Boys will perform at the Community Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 27.   

Tickets range from $42 to $75 and are available at, charged by phone with major credit cards by calling the box office at (570) 326-2424 or (800) 432-9382 or in person at 220 W. Fourth St., in downtown Williamsport.

The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their debut 50 years ago.

The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. This tour will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.

Love’s role as the band’s front man sometimes overshadows his stature as one of rock’s foremost songwriters.  “Surfin’,” The Beach Boys’ first hit came from his pen. With his cousin, Brian Wilson, Love wrote the classics “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “California Girls” and the Grammy nominated “Good Vibrations.”  Years later, he showed he still had the lyrical chops by co-writing the chart-topping “Kokomo.”
