For Immediate Release
 
 
THE ENDLESS SUMMER WILL CONTINUE AFTER THE BEACH BOYS 50TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR WRAPS
 

As The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Reunion Tour enters its last week culminating in its final shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 27 and Wembley Arena on September 28, Mike Love and Bruce Johnston will be keeping The Beach Boys’ music in front of live audiences by touring in the configuration that they have been touring in for 14 of the last 50 years.  The post 50th anniversary configuration will not include Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks. The 50th Reunion Tour was designed to be a set tour with a beginning and an end to mark a special 50-year milestone for the band. 
 
“As we move on, Bruce and I look forward to performing live for Beach Boys fans everywhere,” says Mike Love.
 
Several North American dates in October have already gone on sale and concert dates will continue to be announced for The Beach Boys which include Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Mike Love and Bruce Johnston supported musically and vocally by Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten, who serves as musical director. It is in this configuration that The Beach Boys have been bringing the legacy of their music and the American lifestyle, with which they have become synonymous, since 1998 when Carl Wilson passed.  For 50 years Love has lead The Beach Boys live on stage breaking Guinness Book of World Record numbers for attendance and touring along the way.  The Endless Summer will continue for fans everywhere who want to see The Beach Boys live.

Disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.  Here's hoping next year sees further activity from the *real* Beach Boys again, though...if not another tour, then maybe an album.

Mike, just stop touring and take a break for a while until the rest of the group is ready to tour. I can see so many things going wrong this winter with people confused about the BBs touring groups.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

I didn't expect them to keep together, especially Brian. But - although it was unlikely - I had hoped they put an end to the band even if just changing the name of Mike & Bruce's show. But I guess right after this great tour they will sell more than before for a periode

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

The show in Wembley will be my last Beach Boys related show unless they tour again or Brian releases another album..

I don't blame Mike and Bruce for hitting the road, what else have they to do?

That said, it's a shame they can't go out in style

Mike: "We did this on our reunion album-"

Crowd: "YEAAAAHH! BRIAN! AL! ETC

Mike: "Er, yeah, they aren't here."

Now there's an interesting question for the Twitter-Beach Boys event

I saw their show last year and it was the best gig I have been to. It's a shame I'll only get to see the 'full' Beach Boys once in my life but I'd be happy to go and see another Mike and Bruce show. You really have to give it to Mike whether you like him or not, he's helped to keep their music alive for 50 years.

Doesn't bother nor surprise me. The 50th Anniversary year has been fun but I like things the way they were too. I am just glad I got the chance to see them live this year. That was something I never believe would ever happen.

I can understand Brian having a rest - but I thought there might be the slimmest of opportunities that Al & Dave may do the odd date here and there...

I said words to that effect when news of these Mike & Bruce dates started filtering through a few months ago.

Hope they come back to the UK soon, though, I'd love to see them again - to quote the sleeve notes of the Concert/Live In London twofer : "...the Beach Boys never needed any rehabilitation in England. The only thing they've ever done wrong there is not schedule enough shows to meet the enormous demand." !

Doing 180 gigs a year is Mikes idea of a good time. Brian would be happy spending 180 days a year in the studio recording 'Shortnin Bread'. Past and present band members fit somewhere in between. Thats just the way it is folks.

We did know about this. It's still sad that Al & Dave can't join, but Brian obviously needs to look after himself so another year of planes, trains and automobiles wouldn't do him much good. Wembley had better be a massive party, is all. I don't want it to end  Sad

What can a poor boy do, 'cept to play in a rock n'roll band?   (though Love isn't exactly poor)

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/beach-boys-to-continue-touring-without-brian-wilson-al-jardine-david-marks-20120917

Rolling Stone got a hold of the same press release.  But I don't recall when/where Brian made these comments:


However, Brian Wilson seemed optimistic about continuing with the band. When asked recently what his future plans were, Wilson told Rolling Stone, "I want to continue touring with the Beach Boys indefinitely." Still, Wilson was unsure of the possibilities of that happening. "I don't know. I really don't know. I just know I'm going to continue to tour with them," he said.

I guess we all knew that this would happen, but it's definitely distasteful for "Mike Love" to post this on his Facebook before the reunion gigs have even finished.

Yeah I don't get why he (or his management?) would post it at all on FB..it's not a great story or vey flattering.  It opens it up for fans to display their displeasure with that decision...why would they invite that?  Kinda weird. 

Seeing Brian's comments about wanting to stick around is a good sign, I just hope that he and Mike have ended their brief reunion on a positive note and with the lines of communication wide open....

So the reunion is going to end soon, with Brian, David & Al exiting, the box set goes into limbo, and so does the idea of a follow-up album using some of the 16 leftover songs from the recent reunion sessions.

Failing to come through with the box set is unforgivable.

Do those Brian comments come from the RS article when this news first dropped a couple of months ago? He gave a similar 'what do you mean we're not touring again?' response.
