Brian Wilson has added a final run of dates to his Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary tour, Billboard reports.

The added dates will see Wilson performing additional shows in the U.K., Europe and North America through mid-October.  The tour originally kicked off in March of 2016, with Wilson performed 99 shows last year.  The co-founding member and songwriting genius behind the Beach Boys performs the album in its entirety for each show.

“We are blown away by the reception of this tour. It’s unbelievable how many people love this album,” Wilson said in a statement. “The audiences have been so fantastic and we are honored to play for them. We never expected this reaction so we will continue to perform this album for people as long as they ask us to.”

With the added dates, the tour is now set to wrap up on October 14th in Costa Mesa, CA.

Pet Sounds was released by the Beach Boys in May of 1966 and is universally regarded as on of the finest albums of the 60s.
