Brian Wilson and Friends DVDBrian Wilson and Friends, a new live CD/DVD set and Blu-ray edition, is being released today (July 29) by BMG, in collaboration with the PBS television series Soundstage. The concert performance is available both in stores and online. Filmed live at the Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas on December 12, 2014, the 19-track CD and 26-track DVD/Blu-ray editions feature many of Wilson’s hits with the Beach Boys and selections from his solo career.

According to an official announcement, Brian Wilson and Friends originally aired on PBS nationwide throughout 2015. Initially offered exclusively in DVD and Blu-ray configurations as a premium gift incentive for viewers contributing donations during the network’s annual pledge drive, the new release marks the first time that a companion CD is being offered, along with bonus material not included during the public television airings. It includes bonus tracks, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with guest artists.
