It appears that Brian Wilson may finally be done playing Pet Sounds and is ready to move on.

The holiday season, Wilson and his band which includes former Beach Boys' Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, will be playing the group's 1964 Christmas Album in its entirety in select cities.

For over fifty years, classics like "Little Saint Nick" and "The Man With All the Toys" have been heard on holiday radio. The Christmas Album was the Beach Boys' seventh studio album, going to number 6 in its first year of release.  Designed as a response to Phil Spector's A Christmas Gift to You, the album included five originals and seven standards. Wilson produced and arranged the album that also included orchestral arrangements by Dick Reynolds who had previous worked with such vocal groups as the Four Freshman.

Along with the full Christmas Album, the tour will also include selections from Wilson's own 2005 album All I Really Want For Christmas.
