Brian Wilson has announced that, because of ongoing back pain, his doctor has advised him to have immediate surgery which he hopes to relieve the problem.

Brian, for now, is postponing all May shows with his people working with the venues to schedule new dates.

Here is Wilson’s statement:

Dear friends,

As some of you might know I have been having some issues with my back that has very recently gotten worse. It runs in my family, Carl had back problems as well. My doctors have told me that I need to have back surgery immediately.They are optimistic that this will finally relieve the pain.

Sadly, this means we must postpone the upcoming May shows. I’m very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to everyone who was coming out to see us.

I know that my agents are already in the process of rescheduling and we will have some of the make up dates to announce very soon. We will get you all the info ASAP.

Please know that the music is in my heart and in my soul and me and the boys are looking forward to performing for you very soon.

Love & Mercy,

Brian

Postponed dates include includes a three night run with the Nashville Symphony along with a series of shows in Florida. His next scheduled performance is July 15 in Victoria, BC, which will give Brian two months to heal.

Yesterday, it was Bonnie Raitt who pulled out of a number of shows with James Taylor for needed surgery.
