The Beach Boys will headline the National Memorial Day Concert being held in Washington, D.C.
Producers have confirmed that the California-based surf-rock outfit will perform at the free annual concert, which is held on the west lawn of the United States Capitol Building on May 29 (16), the Associated Press reports.
The concert, which honours America's service members and veterans, will be hosted for the 11th consecutive year by actors Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise, who are both longtime advocates for veterans' issues.
In addition to the Good Vibrations singers, pop singer and actress Katharine Mcphee, country singer Trace Adkins and soprano Renee Fleming will also entertain concert-goers, as will the National Symphony Orchestra.

John Stamos got choked up as he accepted an honour at the TV Land Icon Awards on Sunday (10Apr16).
The actor was presented with the Timeless Icon prize by his longtime actor friend Garry Marshall, who recommended John for TV show Full House, following tributes from John's Full House co-stars Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin, and Grandfathered co-star Paget Brewster.
“I feel like I owe this and everything good in my life to the people who surround me with love,” John said while accepting the award in honour of his extensive career. He then grew emotional when thanking his family, friends and fans,“who have been watching me since General Hospital and allowed me to come into your living rooms… and I promise I never take that for granted.”
“I thought it was undeserving but I guess I’ve been around a long time... All I wanted was to be on a show like Happy Days," the 52-year-old told Variety.com at the show.

Beach Boys star Mike Love is planning to reveal all about the band in a new memoir.
The singer, who is the sole licensee of the Beach Boys name, hasn't been portrayed in the best light in previous Beach Boys books and now he's hoping to set the record straight in his own tome.
Love insists it's time for him to speak out after years of being "ostracised" and "vilified" by bandmates like cousin Brian Wilson.
"It was like I hardly did anything and Brian did everything," Love told Rolling Stone. "It’s like kind of trying to erase somebody from history or create another reality.

Brian Wilson Is Planning To Celebrate The 50th Anniversary Of The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds By Performing The Album's Songs For The Last Time.
The God Only Knows singer will hit the road in March (16) for a seven-month world tour.
The dates, which begin in New Zealand and Australia, will feature his "last ever" complete concert performances of the 1966 album.

2016 represents the 50th anniversary of 'Pet Sounds', one of the most influential albums ever recorded.
The singer, 73, has announced more than seventy live dates around the world in 2016, beginning in Auckland, New Zealand on March 26th. The tour will progress through Japan and Europe, and hit North America in June, lasting until September with a short break in between.
Wilson also announced that these dates would represent the final time that he performs Pet Sounds in full. He’ll be joined by fellow original Beach Boys member Al Jardine, and sometime touring member Blondie Chaplin, on the lengthy tour.
Rocker Lenny Kravitz Is Desperate To Perfect Surfing, So He Can Create A New Beach Boys Sound.
The Let Love Rule star spends a large part of the year at his retreat on Eleuthera in the Bahamas and he's made it his 2016 New Year's resolution to take surfing lessons there.
"I don't surf and I'm not the best swimmer," he tells Rolling Stone, "(but) I made a plan a month ago: Surfing is gonna change my music. It's going to offer me something I don't have that I need to move toward.
"Lately I've been listening to (the Beach Boys song) God Only Knows over and over. A Brian Wilson phase wouldn't be bad."
Actor Kurt Russell Still Can't Believe He Was Allowed To Sit In On The Recording Of One Of The Beach Boys' Hits As A 12-Year-old Fan.
The Furious 7 star stumbled upon the studio session as a child after he was dropped off to perform some acting work.
"I was about 12 years old and I had... to do a voiceover or a commercial," he tells U.S. late night host James Corden. "So I was walking down hallways, knocking on doors and I could here this music coming from one room and I found the place where I was supposed to go, but I was a little bit early and they were a little bit late, so there was nobody there.
"I just started wandering around and I walked in the door of this place and I watched them (Beach Boys) do this song and I started to leave and one of them said, 'No, it's OK, come in and listen to this. What do you think of this?' and I thought I recognised the sound, and it was The Beach Boys.
Singer Mike Love Has Finally Completed Work On A Christmas Song He Wrote For A Planned Beach Boys Holiday Album In 1979.
(You'll Never Be) Alone on Christmas Day was released on Love's Meleco Records on Friday (06Nov15).
He originally wrote the tune with classical pianist Ron Altbach and the Beach Boys cut a rough demo, but the recording was never completed.
Love returned to the track earlier this year (15) when indie rockers Phoenix approached him and asked for his permission to cover the song for Bill Murray's upcoming Netflix holiday special, A Very Murray Christmas.

Beach Boys Star Brian Wilson Was Joined Onstage By The Actor Who Plays Him As A Young Man In New Movie Love & Mercy At The Dvd Launch Party On Monday Night (12oct15).
"Brian asked me to sing that song because he knows it's one of my favourites," the actor explains. "My favourite part was the ending, the communal 'ahhhs' and the feeling of communion up there. It's a really beautiful, intimate song."
Wilson was also joined onstage at the Vibrato Grill in Los Angeles by Jardine's son Matt, who took on lead vocals for the band's performance of another Beach Boys classic, Wouldn't It Be Nice.
Beach Boys Legend Brian Wilson Is To Play A Special Concert To Raise Funds For A Mental Health Charity.
The veteran musician, who spent much of his younger life as a recluse after developing schizophrenia in the 1960s, is backing Campaign to Change Direction, an initiative which aims to erase the stigma around mental health issues in the U.S.
Wilson will play a fundraising gig for Give an Hour, a charity providing free mental health care to war veterans, on 4 November (15) and he is proud to be involved with the scheme.
He says, "My wife, Melinda, and I are very excited to be a part of this important campaign, not only to bring awareness to the mental health issues faced by millions of Americans, but also to encourage everyone to learn the five signs of emotional suffering. It's time for us to bring the conversation of mental health in America out of the shadows, and the Campaign to Change Direction is leading the way."
