2005-THE BEACH BOYS


The legendary group that spawned an entire culture of surfing music in the 1960s - The Beach Boys - will headline Barossa Under the Stars, at what is an exciting new venue for the event: the grounds of the Barossa Arts & Convention Centre in Tanunda.

 

The new venue - in Magnolia Rd, Tanunda - is more spacious and also includes ample parking adjacent to the concert site. The event will again include the very popular Barossa food & wine village with entertainment, and a number of dinner and show packages will be available.

The Beach Boys' performance will include over 30 hit songs. The group's classic songs epitomise the spirit of the summer lifestyle. Their first hit "Surfin'" (1961) launched a string of chart-topping tunes that span nearly 40 years and include eternal anthems of youth such as "Surfin' USA", "Surfer Girl", "I Get Around", "California Girls", "Help Me Rhonda", "Good Vibrations", "Wouldn't It Be Nice" and "Kokomo", among others. The group's chart success alone would have earned them their spot in The Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame (they were inducted in 1988), not to mention the 32 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards, and worldwide sales estimated at over 100 million. The Beach Boys were honoured at the 2001 Grammy® Awards, receiving The Lifetime Achievement Award.
