LOS ANGELES (AP) — Beach Boys singer Brian Wilson has postponed his June tour over mental health concerns.

This includes Wilson’s show at Artpark, which has been rescheduled for August 7.

Wilson, 76, said in a statement Thursday that he postponed the Pet Sounds and Greatest Hits Live tour after a recent surgery caused him to feel “mentally insecure.”

The singer says he’s dealt with mental illness for decades and it’s become “unbearable” at times. He had three successful surgeries on his back in the past year, but the latest one made him feel “strange” and turned “pretty scary.”

Wilson says he was recording and rehearsing with the intentions of touring. But his mental health issues returned, and he says he struggled with “stuff in my head and saying things I don’t mean and I don’t know why.”

Wilson plans to work with his doctors, rest and recover.

Tickets purchased for his previously scheduled Artpark date will be honored at the new date. Refunds can be obtained at the Artpark box office or by calling (716) 754-4375 by 4 p.m. on June 15.
