Brian Wilson's 'Smile' Live In Concert

In 1966, Brian Wilson began work on a follow-up to The Beach Boys' now-classic Pet Sounds. The album, called Smile, was to be his most ambitious undertaking yet, but before it could be completed, a tumultuous set of circumstances caused Wilson to abandon the project. Almost four decades later, the public is finally getting a chance to hear the most celebrated album never released.

In a two-hour Creators at Carnegie special, Brian Wilson sings songs from Smile, as well as other favorites from The Beach Boys' catalog.
