The Beach Boys Get Around in Seoul


America’s most iconic rock band to visit Korea for the first time, for an exclusive performance at Yeoudio’s Conrad Hotel

From their musical debut in California in 1961, with “Surfin’,”to more than 50 years touring and topping music charts around the globe, the Beach Boys’ progressive, intricate harmonies and upbeat, summer vibes have led them to become one of the most iconic American rock bands in history. Started by three brothers, Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson; their cousin, Mike Love; and friend, Al Jardine; the Beach Boys were propelled to national fame in March 1962 with the release of the now-infamous song “Surfin’ U.S.A. They went on to release 82 singles and 29 studio albums internationally, including Pet Sounds (1996), which is regarded by many music critics as one of the greatest albums of all time. Led by Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys’ experiments with an addictive blend of rock, pop and other musical genres, have come to epitomize 60s, 70s and even 80s youth culture for many a nostalgic music fan. Their discography boasts a staggering 36 U.S. Top 40 hits—the most by any band, ever—including “I Get Around” (1964), “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” (1966), “Good Vibrations” (1966) and “California Dreamin’” (1986). “An intimate evening at the Conrad Seoul featuring America’s iconic band, The Beach Boys” on March 21st, promises to be a unique experience with the band in an exclusive, up-close-and-personal setting.
