Amarillo isn't exactly a hotbed for concerts and big events, this is something I think we've figured out by now.

Every now and then, however, we get a monster to roll through that everyone clamors for.

I'm happy to announce that the big one has arrived, and it's taking us to the beach.

The legendary Beach Boys have announced they'll be coming to the Amarillo Civic Center on September 23rd!

Believe me when I say, you've heard a Beach Boys song or two over the course of your lifetime, whether it be from listening to the radio, growing up with your parent's vinyl collection, or hearing one in a movie.

The Beach Boys have carved out a career that has spanned decades, and are always good for a surprise hit just when you thought they were done.

How can any of us forget about "Kokomo" in the Tom Cruise flick "Cocktail"? A great movie deserves a great lead song, and The Beach Boys delivered.

While the lineup has changed over the years due to various factors, there are still two original members in the band. Lead singer Brian Wilson is still belting out all the classics and another founding member, and guitarist/singer Al Jardine is still with Wilson.

The Beach Boys will perform instantly recognizable songs such as "Surfin' USA", "Help Me Rhonda", "I Get Around" and so many more. Even if you don't consider yourself a "fan" of the group, it will be an enjoyable night that will put you in a great mood and forget about any life issues.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 24. There are various ways to get them, via Panhandle Tickets, by calling 806-378-3096, or in person at places such as the Amarillo Civic Center and participating United Supermarkets locations.
