Brian Wilson has postponed his planned U.K. tour in September due to the success of the Wilson biopic Love & Mercy.

"Due to the overwhelming success of Brian Wilson's movie Love & Mercy which has opened in the U.S. to critical acclaim, Brian has had to postpone his current UK tour planned for September 2015 due to commitments in the U.S.," a statement from his rep said to the Yorkshire Evening Post. "He will be back in the U.K. and Europe in 2016 with a string of concerts to mark the 50th Anniversary of his seminal album Pet Sounds, which will be his final European tour. Brian says  'I'm sorry I won't be able to make these shows this year, but I look forward to seeing all my fans in 2016 to help me celebrate 50 years of Pet Sounds. This will be my final European tour. I hope you all enjoy my movie when it opens in the UK on July 10th, I'll see you all soon, Best, Brian.'"

A rep for Wilson did not immediately respond to Billboard's request for comment.
