Dear friends,

It is with great regret that I need to postpone my upcoming June tour. 

It is no secret that I have been living with mental illness for many decades. There were times when it was unbearable but with doctors and medications I have been able to live a wonderful, healthy and productive life with support from my family, friends and fans who have helped me through this journey. 

As you may know in the last year or so I’ve had 3 surgeries on my back. The surgeries were successful and i’m physically stronger than i’ve been in a long time. 

However, after my last surgery i started feeling strange and it’s been pretty scary for awhile. I was not feeling like myself. Mentally insecure is how I’d describe it. We're not sure what is causing it but i do know that it’s not good for me to be on the road right now so I’m heading back to Los Angeles. 

I had every intention to do these shows and was excited to get back to performing. I've been in the studio recording and rehearsing with my band and have been feeling better. But then it crept back and I’ve been struggling with stuff in my head and saying things I don’t mean and I don’t know why. Its something i’ve never dealt with before and we cant quite figure it out just yet. 

I’m going to rest, recover and work with my doctors on this. 

I’m looking forward to my recovery and seeing everyone later in the year. 

The music and my fans keep me going and I know this will be something I can AGAIN overcome.

Love & Mercy,

Brian Wilson

Nothing matters more than you being ok, Brian. Not any concert. Love to you.

Dear Brian,
a statement like this couldn't be any wiser. I'm very impressed by your open way of dealing with your illness. I'm quite a bit concerned about your health, but your family and you apparently know what is necessary now.
I trust in you. Take a break as long as you need to. As soon as you're back, I'll be back at your shows, too. I promise.

Bernd, Germany

Dear Brian:

As your BEST fans are saying, you are an awesome person and your decision to take time for yourself is a reflection of your inner strength.  We love you more than you know, and ONLY care about your happiness - so if touring makes you happy again some day, we'll be there!

-Doug

Brian, I've been worried about your health for the past couple of years; I could tell that you were not "yourself" on stage.  Please take care of your health.

Get Well Soon Mr Wilson.
Nothing is more important than Brian needing to take care of himself.
I'm sure most of us will agree, Brian never needs to apologize for taking time 
out to look after 'number one' under any circumstances.

I wish Brian all the best. I never met him. I wish i will one day. He's one of those characters larger than life. People who love him do it 100%. He'll be in my prayers. I too know how confused and complicated it all can become. how your stability can be swiped away from under your feet. The little i know of the man let me show he's a a good hearted man with a lot of soul pure hearted. May God protect you.
