LIVERPOOL - Prepare for some “good vibrations” Liverpool: the Beach Boys are heading to Queens Place Emera Centre on June 30.

A press conference was held March 9 to announce the classic pop-rock band is coming to Liverpool - one of just two tour stops in Nova Scotia.

Queens Place manager Steve Burns said the concert has been in the works for more than five months.

“This is again an event from young to old, everyone can enjoy because it’s a happy, fun, party-like event,” says Burns. “It ties so well to Queens and what we represent.”

Formed in 1961, the Beach Boys are best known for their classic hits such as Surfin’ U.S.A., Help Me Rhonda, Kokomo, Good Vibrations, and Wouldn’t It Be Nice?

Led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, the current Beach Boys play alongside Scott Totten, Jeffrey Foskett, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Brian Eichenberger. The tour will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.

The Beach Boys’ appearance would mark the fourth major concert for the facility. Blue Rodeo played in July 2015 to a crowd of approximately 1,900, - nearly filling the 2,000-person venue.

 “Each concert has had higher and higher attendance,” said Mayor Christopher Clarke at the announcement. “We expect that the concert that we’re announcing today will also meet with huge support and enthusiasm from fans.”

Tickets are priced at $62.50 and $74.50 plus taxes and fees and go on sale on March 17 at 10 a.m. at Queens Place, Ticketpro outlets and online at
