Thursday, Dec. 4

Beach Boy Brian Wilson brings a little piece of summer back to the Hard Rock Tulsa Hotel & Casino Thursday night. Known as the front man and creative force behind the famed 1960s band, Wilson has penned some of the Beach Boys’ (and American music’s) most classic rock, pop and surfer hits. If anyone has any doubts to Wilson’s place in the genre, they need only witness the viral video blitz of BBC Music’s cover of “God Only Knows,” released in October and featuring dozens of recording artists singing verses of the ballad before giving Wilson the lingering final phrase. Here’s hoping Wilson gets into a few from those classic surf days as well as Pet Sounds. His show will be at 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4, at 777 W. Cherokee St., in Catoosa. Tickets are $60-$75 at www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com.
