Can anyone tell me where I can find the pre-sale? Been told there is one for 'Brian Wilson Fan Club' on Wednesday but no idea where to find it. Thank you.

Pleased for the UK/Western Europe fans - they've waited awhile.  Sorry that you folks won't see the (Something Great from) '68 tour, as it was, well, something great indeed.  But I know Brian has a special place in his heart for his UK fans...so some rarities are not out of the question.
Have fun!

We were told by a very nice person who works for Brian that details would be posted to the Brian Wilson Tour page on Facebook later today or tomorrow. Please apply for membership if you'd like to join. I'm sure this information will also be posted here in due course.

Believe in the Magic 8. Thinking that Deb may have other sources other than Magic, but ...

Bugsy, how do we really know what is in store?  Something great might come out of it into this year.  Clearly, that tour worked so well.  THAT was a highlight show, for me, of the past twenty years, btw.

I was about a year too early.   Was in UK at that time last year.

I would just like to compliment Brian's team for the artist presale which has provided some excellent seats and made some fans very happy. Steve Guest kindly advised us on the Brian Wilson Tour page on FB and his help was also much appreciated!

Agreed. Cash is tight at the moment with upcoming holidays, but seeing Brian in Blackpool 10 mins walk from my house was too good to pass up (this will be Brian concert 6 for those counting).

Got fourth row balcony seats at the bottom price tier in the pre-sale, pretty near the centre. Iโ€™ve seen plenty of shows, musicals and concerts at the Blackpool Opera House so I know the seats will be pretty good.

Hoping for a couple of deep cuts in amongst the hits; Pet Sounds aside, the highlight of seeing Brian in May 2016 was getting to hear Wake The World and Honkinโ€™ Down The Highway. Never thought Iโ€™d get to hear anything from Love You live (an album I absolutely ADORE!)

Ok, Birmingham Symphony Hall booked.
One issue may be the possibility of cancellation due to Corona Virus.

My Magic ๐ŸŽฑ has a better than average record. Otherwise I just keep my eyes and ears open. ๐Ÿง

This was 15 minutes after tickets at the RAH went on general sale. Glad I used the artist's presale!

as friends of brighton festival and the dome
we got pre-sale opportunity yesterday
and we were down there before the box office door opened
(not alone).
no booking fee / nbest choice of tkts
and we nabbed the very pair we wanted.

so chuffed the bw band are returning to sunny brighton.
and it kicks off the tour.
ok, a 'greatest hits' selection,
but wih al and blondie still aboard,
that's immensely exciting.

pretty shite that pre-sale rah tkts were appearing on viagogo
on weds.
true bw fans, what?
not...
scalping shysters!

well,
we were fortunate to get to a couple of the '1968' shows last year,
so i'm pleased we were able to do that.
i hope they retain a few of those songs in the setlist.

methinks, what i'll do is rally the troops,
for those blueboarders and beyond who come down to the seaside
and fix a meeting place / time to have a bit of a sunday afternoon fling and gadabout.
who's up for it?

cheers
