**Important: Show is moving to Pinnacle Bank Arena from Pinewood Bowl Theater.
The Beach Boys concert slated for Pinewood Bowl Theater on Thursday, August 11 has been moved to Pinnacle Bank Arena because of impending inclement weather.
The decision to move the show was announced Wednesday by SMG Lincoln, Lincoln Parks and Recreation, promoter Mammoth, and The Beach Boys. "Our main interest is the safety of the fans," said SMG Lincoln General Manager Tom Lorenz. Forecasts for Thursday evening call for rain and thunderstorms.
The Beach Boys tickets previously purchased for Pinewood Bowl will be honored at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The show will begin at 8:00 p.m. as originally scheduled. Joining them as co-headliners will be The Temptations.
The move to Pinnacle Bank Arena has opened up tickets for the concert, which had been sold out. Those tickets will be on sale at the Pinnacle Bank Arena Ticket Office and at Ticketmaster. “We’re increasing the number of seats by going to Pinnacle Bank Arena,” Lorenz said. “It’s a nice little benefit for fans who weren’t able to get tickets who will now be able to see the show.”
As The Beach Boys mark more than a half century of making music, the group continues to ride the crest of a wave unequalled in America’s musical history. The Beach Boys have become synonymous with the California lifestyle and have become an American icon to fans around the world. The Beach Boys will pull into town to perform on Thursday, August 11 at Pinewood Bowl Theater in Lincoln’s Pioneers Park. Joining them as co-headliners will be The Temptations.
Since lead-singer man Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the bands chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “Kokomo.”
The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers where also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award. With more than five decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.
Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys, Capitol/EMI's 30-track collection of the band's biggest hits, has achieved triple-platinum success with sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.
The Temptations, having sold tens of millions of albums, are one of the most successful groups in music history. Over the course of their career, the Temptations have released four Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles and fourteen R&B number-one singles, and their material has earned them three Grammy Awards. The Temptations were the first Motown recording act to win a Grammy Award - for "Cloud Nine" in 1969 - and in 2013 received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Six of the Temptations (Edwards, Franklin, Kendricks, Ruffin, Otis Williams and Paul Williams) were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. Three classic Temptations songs, "My Girl", "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)", and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone", are among The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. The Temptations were also ranked at #68 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of all time.
“The Temps have always been known for great lead singers. Today we have three of the greatest leads in the proud history of the group.” - Otis Williams
The current line-up is Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Joe Herndon and Bruce Williamson.
