The Beach Boys have been announced as the closing act for the next Montrose Music Festival.
After more than half a century on the stage, the iconic Californian band will be playing their signature tunes to the festival audience on Sunday, 28 May.
For its 10th anniversary, the Montrose Music Festival chose to bring The Beach Boys’ ‘good vibrations’ and an assortment of their legendary pop songs to Scotland’s trademark beach resort.
In an official statement, singer and co-founding member Mike Love said: “It is great that 50 years plus we are still in a position to be touring and sharing our music with fans around the world.”
“We’re really looking forward to performing outdoors in Montrose, and being part of this popular festival.”
“It’s going to be a great night.”
The festival’s organisers are ecstatic about having the pop legends from the 60s lined up as well. David Paton, Chairman of the Montrose Music Festival, said: “We’re delighted that The Beach Boys are joining us for a special Sunday night show to bring our tenth annual live music festival to a close.”
“The Beach Boys are renowned as one of the biggest selling bands of all time, and we just can’t believe that they’re joining us for MoFest 2017. This is a really exciting time for MoFest and we promise an exceptional festival.”
Tickets for the show go on sale at 09:00 a.m. on Friday 25 November.
