One of the music world’s most iconic bands are coming to Derry.
The Beach Boys will play the city on June 26, 2014 as part of their Good Vibrations Tour. Their Derry show is part of the city’s Foyle International Maritime Festival that includes the city’s welcome home celebrations for the Clipper fleet.
Derry’s Mayor Martin Reilly said it was “fantastic” the band - who have sold more than 100million records since forming in 1961 - were playing in the city.
“This announcement today is just one of a number of significant announcements for the city as part of our legacy promise for our year as city of music in 2014. The Beach Boys are a huge act and have played a significant role in changing the musical landscape. It’s fantastic that they have included the city as part of their tour and will no doubt have Ebrington rocking to the sounds of Surfing USA and Good Vibrations.
“We are particularly delighted that the supports acts, which are to be announced at a later date will involve local bands who will get a chance to perform. The Beach Boys concert will be another opportunity for the city to experience international live music at the Ebrington site and will be a fitting welcome to the Clipper fleet as they visit for the maritime festival of celebration.”
