Wilson, along with former Beach Boys Al Jardine and Blondie Chapman, will perform a number of hits alongside a full performance of their hit album Pet Sounds.

I love performing Pet Sounds with my band and look forward to playing back in Glastonbury, as I had a ball the last time we played at the festival, this show at the Abbey will be a special night, I look forward to seeing you all there, Love and Mercy, Brian.

– Brian Wilson

Wilson will be joined by the Black Dyke Band, an internationally renowned brass band, and the event will conclude with its annual firework display.
