The Beach Boys’ Wild Honey tour, which started in May at London’s Royal Albert Hall, is coming to the La Crosse Center on June 7.

The tour is named for the band’s “Wild Honey” album, an R&B/soul-influenced record released 50 years ago, the last Beach Boys albums for a decade that featured Brian Wilson as the primary songwriter.

At the helm for the Beach Boys on this tour is founding member Mike Love, joined by Bruce Johnston, who became a Beach Boy in 1965 when he replaced Glen Campbell, who was filling in on live performances for Wilson.

The band, which averages 150 shows per year, also includes Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, Scott Totten and, on drums and vocals, John Cowsill, a member of The Cowsills and the drummer on Tommy Tutone’s 1981 hit “867-5309/Jenny.”

Tickets for the show go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday, with reserved seat tickets priced at $69.50, $59.50, $49.50 and $39.50. Tickets are available in person at the La Crosse Center box office, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or online at
