News from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino:
“THE BEACH BOYS: NOW & THEN” TOUR COMES TO FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO IN FEBRUARY
November 16, 2018 – The Beach Boys’ impact on music history is undeniable. This band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions, but its greater significance lies in the fact that The Beach Boys’ songs have forever changed the musical landscape, profoundly influencing countless performing artists to follow and now “The Beach Boys: Now & Then” tour is coming to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Friday, February 1, 2019.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who, along with Jeffrey Foskett, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher, Christian Love and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band.
The Beach Boys could have rested on the success of the epoch-shifting Pet Sounds masterpiece in 1966… or after Mike Love’s concept album Endless Summer ignited a second generation of Beach Boys fans and stirred a tempest that rocked the music world… or after recording Love’s co-written Golden Globe nominated “Kokomo” in 1988 and seeing it become its best selling single ever… or after being inducted that same year into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame… or after watching its worldwide album sales blow past l00 million… or after winning the NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 [along with The Who, Bob Marley, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr. and Les Paul]. And still, The Beach Boys continue to have fun, fun, fun, with no end in sight.
In 2016, The Beach Boys celebrated the 50th anniversary of the hit “Good Vibrations,” which is widely considered one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of rock and roll. Mike 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. 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 irresistible and chart-topping “Kokomo.”
One can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold but these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys, and this legendary band is looking forward to returning to The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs in February.
Tickets for the 8pm “The Beach Boys: Now & Then” performance on Friday, February 1, 2019 are go on sale Friday, November 16th for $79, $59, and $39 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.
