The Beach Boys will play a special show at the home of the Chelsea Pensioners in West London next summer.

As part of the 'Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2020', Mike Love and co will perform at the outdoor event held at the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea on June 14, 2020.

The 'Live At Chelsea Concert Series' returns for its sixth year, and has previously seen the likes of Sir Tom Jones, James Blunt, Kaiser Chiefs, Rufus Wainwright, Ludovico Einaudi, Simply Red and Belle & Sebastian perform for the pensioners and audience members.

A portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as, the maintenance of the Grade I listed site, which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II.

Tickets for the UK exclusive concert will go on sale on Friday (22.11.19) at www.liveatchelsea.com.

More acts will be announced for the series in due course.
