Brian Wilson plans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beach Boys classic Pet Sounds by embarking on a lengthy world tour that will see him offering audiences “top hits and fan favorites” as well as his “last ever” complete concert performances of the 1966 album.

“It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago,” said Wilson in a press release. “I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world.”

More than 70 dates are confirmed for the tour, which will find Wilson joined during select dates by former Beach Boys Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. The list of currently scheduled shows starts March 26 in New Zealand and concludes Oct. 14 in Bijou, Calif., with Wilson traveling to Japan, the United Kingdom, Spain, Israel and Portugal along the way. Ticket presales begin Jan. 27, with official sales opening two days later in most markets. Check out the complete list of dates below, and visit Wilson’s official site for further details.
