There will be good vibrations at Queens College this October.

The Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson will be performing a selection of classic hits and material from his new solo album at the Flushing college located at 65-30 Kissena Blvd. on Oct. 9.

Wilson’s solo album, “No Pier Pressure,” was released in April, and the show will also feature The Beach Boys founding member Al Jardine.

The performance is slated to begin at 8 p.m. at the Kupferberg Center for the Arts in the Colden Auditorium. Tickets run from $39 to $89 and are on sale now.

Brian Wilson is one of pop music’s most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history and co-founder of The Beach Boys.

He played an active part in creating the band’s distinctive sound, co-writing, arranging, producing and performing in more than two dozen The Beach Boys Top 40 hits.

Wilson was only 20 years old when the group released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, in 1962. The group went on to have nine consecutive “gold” albums including classics like “Surfer Girl,” “I Get Around,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Help Me Rhonda” and “California Girls.”
