One of Brian Wilson’s final stops on the Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour was Friday, Oct. 14, at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. The 74-year-old keyboardist and founder of the Beach Boys performed before a packed audience in the venerable South Shore Room, built in 1959, just two years before the Beach Boys crashed on to the national stage. Original member Al Jardine, known for his falsetto singing voice on songs such as “Help Me, Rhonda,” also performed at the Lake Tahoe show. Released in 1966, “Pet Sounds” is the most acclaimed Beach Boys album. Wilson’s last appearance with the Beach Boys was July 15, 2012, right across the street at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys. He also appeared solo in Tahoe in 2009.
