‘Tis the Season Tour

The Beach Boys featuring The Holiday Vibrations Orchestra

Louisville, Ky 

Palace Theater 


The beach boys – one of the most iconic and influential bands of all time – brought their ‘Tis the Season Tour featuring The Holiday Vibrations Orchestra, to Louisville, Ky on December 11th. Mike Love (81) is currently touring The Beach Boys featuring Bruce Johnston, Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher, and Randy Leago. Love is the only original member. In 1961, the band was founded by brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and a buddy named Al Jardine. In 1983, shortly after Dennis’ terrible death, Brian lost contact with the group. After Carl passed away from lung cancer in 1998, the band gave Mike Love permission to tour using the group’s name.

Love and company tore through classic Beach Boys’ songs from their 60-year discography plus a selection of Holiday covers.
