The Beach Boys have announced a huge outdoor summer show on Sunday 14th June 2020 at the stunning Royal Hospital Chelsea in West London – the home of the Chelsea Pensioners – as part of the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2020.
Many pop acts can be encapsulated by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold, but these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys.
The band have birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions, but their greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.
Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50 years ago.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who, along with Jeffrey Foskett, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher, Christian Love and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band.
The Live At Chelsea Concert Series will return for its 6 th year in 2020, having established itself firmly as a welcome fixture in the summer calendar for many. This is in no small part due to the eclectic range of artists who have been featured previously, including Rufus
Wainwright, Simply Red, Ludovico Einaudi, Belle & Sebastian, Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Jones, amongst many more. As well as this, audiences can look forward to the warm welcome from the Chelsea Pensioners themselves.
Every year a portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the maintenance of the Grade I listed site which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II.
