The gigs are set for Nov. 17 in Boston, Nov. 18 in Washington, D.C., Nov. 19 in Glenside, Pa., and Nov. 21 in New York.
At deadline, there were no plans for Jardine to perform at two other "Pet Sounds" performances on Nov. 1 in Los Angeles and Nov. 12 in London, the latter of which is being billed as the final show of its type in the United Kingdom. Visit Wilson's official Web site for ticket on-sale details.
Wilson previously made complete "Pet Sounds" performances the centerpiece of his live shows in 2000. In recent years, he has also played the newly finished "Smile" album in its entirety.
Wilson's pairing with Jardine, their first in decades, comes a week after a California judge dismissed portions of a lawsuit against the latter by former Beach Boys bandmate Mike Love. Love had sued Jardine claiming he was the only person legally allowed to perform under the name "Beach Boys" but Jardine had toured anyway with "knockoff bands" using names such as "Beach Boys Family & Friends."
