In a career spanning over 50 years, The Beach Boys have sold millions of albums. Considered to be the pioneers of American surf culture, The Beach Boys experienced their first musical success in 1961 with the hit “Surfin’ USA” followed by “Good Vibrations”. Rolling Stone magazine called them “band of the year” in 1974 when they released the compilation album Endless Summer. In 1966, they released the legendary Pet Sounds, which ranked no. 2 in Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” issue in 2003. “Good Vibrations” was even named the “No. 1 song of the century”.
Still featuring the emblematic Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and Brian Wilson, The Beach Boys made their big comeback in 2012 with the album That’s Why God Made the Radio, which went straight to no. 3 on the American charts. This was the best ranking the band had achieved in 37 years, since Endless Summer. In all, the Beach Boys have spent 49 years and one week in the top 10 on Billboard 200: not even The Beatles have them beat with their impressive 47 years in the top 10 albums!
Today, their stage presence, spirit and achievements are very impressive to say the least. In 1988, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame and received a Golden Globes nomination. In 2001, they were awarded a Grammy in recognition of their life’s work.
They'll be back on July 13th, 2019 for Fight Aids Night at Salle des Etoiles.
