The Beach Boys
December 28, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-6
LIMITED SEATING STILL AVAILABLE FOR 3:30 PM PERFORMANCE. THE 7:30 PM PERFORMANCE IS SOLD OUT. The Wheeler Opera House, in partnership with Belly Up Aspen, has announced a one-night-only concert by the Grammy Award-winning group The Beach Boys on December 28, 2016. The group, a staple of the 1960’s surf sound era of music, is known for such legendary hits as “Good Vibrations,” “I Get Around” and “Surfin’ U.S.A.” The band holds a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and have multiple recordings in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
You can capsulize most pop music acts 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. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.
