Brian Wilson plays the Tower Theater on Friday, Sept. 23.

While the purpose of the evening was to commemorate the 50th anniversary of “Pet Sounds,” that wasn’t all we heard at the Tower on Friday. The night kicked off with a 17-song set that included many songs from The Beach Boys’ impressive catalogue.

After a short intermission, Brian Wilson swung into full “Pet Sounds” mode, backed by an 11-piece band. Every song sounded impeccable. Autumn be damned; Wilson just delivered one last beautiful summer night.
