NOW honours Brian Wilson

Beach Boy to pick up an award during NXNE

Brian Wilson’s original songs, the gorgeous vocal arrangements anchored by his own soaring voice, and the brilliant studio production that delivers them have established him as one of the most influential pop geniuses of all time.

Fitting, then, that during what’s being touted as his last tour, NOW names him the recipient of its inaugural Hall Of Fame/Lifetime Achievement Award.

Fans and admirers (NXNE pass-holders receive priority entry) can attend the ceremony at a free event June 16, 6:15 pm, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (370 King West), when Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy presents the award to Wilson on NOW’s behalf.

NOW’s definitely giving the award – aimed at recognizing artists who have changed the world through their work – a stellar launch.

Wilson plays Massey Hall on June 18. Line up early though, because only 50 NXNE wristbands/passes gain entry. See listing.
