BIG 95 KBGO welcomes The Beach Boys and their "Now and Then" Tour to Waco tonight
Dewayne & Tamme are thrilled to welcome the greatest American band of all time to the Extraco Events Center tonight. We'd like to say congratulations to all our concert ticket winners and thank you for listening to BIG 95 KBGO and we look forward to seeing you at our biggest concert event of the year tonight. Here's a little more about the band's current tour from their press release:
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who, along with Jeffrey Foskett, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill,
Keith Hubacher, Christian Love and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. Grammy-winning songwriter Bruce
Johnston joined The Beach Boys in 1965, replacing Glenn Campbell, who filled-in for Brian Wilson, on vocals/bass, when he retired from
touring. Highly regarded in his field, Johnston’s vocal work with such legendary artists as Elton John and Pink Floyd firmly established him
among rock’s elite artists.
Captained by Mike Love, The Beach Boys play an astoundingly busy schedule of concerts, averaging 150 shows a year, ranging from
sun-drenched summer festivals to gala New Year’s celebrations and special events across the globe.
The Beach Boys have continued to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50
years ago. In 2013, their Capitol Records release, Sounds of Summer (RIAA certified triple platinum with over three million in sales and
climbing), and its companion The Warmth of the Sun marked a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that again rocked the world.
The Beach Boys found through their music the key to unfading youth— and they made copies for everyone. To these guys, the beach isn’t just
a place where the surf comes to play— it’s where life is renewed and made whole again.
