Brian Wilson schedules three concerts with the Nashville Symphony in May

ABC/Randy HolmesAfter wrapping up his expansive tour last month celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beach Boys' classic album Pet Sounds, Brian Wilson has begun scheduling shows for next year. The acclaimed songwriter has confirmed his first 2018 dates: a trio of concerts taking place May 10-12 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.

Wilson will be accompanied by the Nashville Symphony at the gigs. In addition, he'll be joined by his former Beach Boys band mates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, who also took part in the Pet Sounds 50th anniversary trek.

In September, a new compilation was released focusing on Wilson's solo career, titled Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology. The 18-track collection includes tracks from most of Wilson's solo albums, spanning from his self-titled 1988 debut to 2015's No Pier Pressure, as well as two previously unreleased tracks -- "Run James Run" and "Some Sweet Day."
