A mystery donor is bringing The Beach Boys to Wellesley for a free concert on Sunday, May 18, as part of the town's annual "Wellesley's Wonderful Weekend" festivities.
The concert is being sponsored by a local resident who wishes to remain anonymous, said Roy Switzler, who is organizing the event.
The concert will take place at 7:15 p.m. at Hunnewell Field, which is located between between Washington Street and the Wellesley High School.
Legendary ambassadors of the California surfer lifestyle and creators of classics such as "Surfin' USA," "Surfer Girl," and "Good Vibrations," the band currently features a lineup that includes original members Mike Love (lead singer) and Bruce Johnston.
[Correction: Bruce Johnston actually joined the Beach Boys in 1965, after the group had already charted an impressive number of hits.]
According to Switzler, the group has played in Wellesley once before, but that was for a private party at the Wellesley Country Club.
