When Brian Wilson's performance was cancelled last year (along with all of Levitation Fest), many hoped that the show would return in a proper concert hall. ACL-Live hosted two nights of this very special event that brought the landmark album Pet Sounds to the stage, performed in its entirety. Wilson was assisted by his Beach Boys bandmate, Al Jardine, with falsetto vocal duties ably fulfilled by Al's son, Matt Jardine, and backed by a multi-piece band.
