Brian Wilson Scraps All Upcoming Dates


Brian Wilson has scrapped all of his remaining summer and fall dates. Although no official reason was given, a statement cancelling his September 22nd show at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium read: “Due to unforeseen health reasons Brian Wilson will not be performing at the Ryman on September 22.⁠​ Brian is bummed to miss this show but looks forward to seeing his fans on the road again.”

Although Brian Wilson has been actively touring the world as a solo performer for over 20 years performing on the world's biggest stages, he admitted to us that he still battles crippling stage fright before each and every show: “The first stage, y'know, I call the 'scare segment.' The next one is, 'recuperate from scared,' I'm a little depressed. The next one is anxiety, y'know? And finally the release of anxiety when we first (punches the table), when I first go to the concert, my anxiety goes, 'whish' — out of my head! It goes right out of my head.”

Not too long ago, we asked Brian Wilson if he’s ever sat down and thought about how many lives he’s changed through his music: “Yes, I have. When I sing it makes me happy. I think I’ve brought a lot of joy to people, yeah, with my tours, yeah.”
