Beach Boys Concert Coming to Outer Banks

Posted By on April 23, 2024

The Beach Boys will return to the Outer Banks for the first time in over 20 years this summer for a Father’s Day Weekend concert at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo.

As The Beach Boys mark more than a half-century of making music, the group continues to ride the crest of a wave unequaled in America’s musical history.

Since the band’s co-founder, lead-singer and chief lyricist Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the bands chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music,” and “Kokomo.”

The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers were also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award. With more than five

decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.

Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys, Capitol/EMI’s 30-track collection of the band’s biggest hits, has achieved triple-platinum success with sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release.

The Beach Boys are led by lead singer and critically acclaimed chief lyricist Mike Love, who, along with longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, Jon Bolton, Keith Hubacher, Randy Leago, and John Wedemeyer continue the legacy of the iconic band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, or David Marks.

Performing two full sets, The Beach Boys, who have become synonymous with the California lifestyle and an American icon to fans around the world, will bring their “Endless Summer Gold” tour to Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo on Father’s Day Weekend, Saturday, June 15.

The iconic pop band last appeared on the Outer Banks when they played at Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills during the Centennial of Flight celebration in 2003.

Tickets go on sale at 10:00 a.m. Friday, April 26, here.
