Beach Boys planning reunion gig

Founding Beach Boy Al Jardine has announced what many Beach Boys fans have been hoping for -- an onstage reunion featuring himself with Brian Wilson, Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston.

In a world exclusive, Jardine revealed to us that plans are in the works for the group to reform later this year in London, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of their 1966 Pet Sounds album. Jardine said that if all goes well, a possible reunion tour might follow: "Actually, a reunion tour is not out of the question, because with this Pet Sounds anniversary coming up, it's a very good possibility that we'll be performing it live in London in November. It would be like a Pet Sounds reunion. Mike is open to it and Brian appears to be open to it and you never know what might spring from that. So if (a reunion tour) is in the cards, we'll do it. You never know. It might just work. "

Jardine and Brian Wilson have been in various legal battles with Love over the past few years, and have not performed with the group since 1998 and 1996, respectively. Love and Johnston continue to tour under the Beach Boys name.

Conspicuously absent from the reunion is Beach Boys co-founder David Marks, who has been performing joint gigs with Jardine over the course of the past year. Jardine explained that although Marks was a co-founder and played a crucial part in most of the group's early recordings, the reunion show would only feature group members who participated in the actual Pet Sounds sessions. Marks quit the group in November 1963 after performing on their first five albums.

Jardine did not give a date when the concert plans would be finalized, who would be backing the group onstage, or when the concert would be announced.

Pet Sounds, which was released on May 16th, 1966, featured such Beach Boys classics as "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "Sloop John B.," "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times," and "God Only Knows."

Jardine and David Marks will team up with Dean Torrence of Jan & Dean for the "Cruisin' With The Legends Of Surf Music" cruise, set for October 2nd through 6th.

Hopefully, Brian's band will be involved. If not, it will be a trainwreck.

I'm sure any of the bands or any combination of the bands are well qualified and I say go for it, so now that it has my blessing they may proceed.

History proved Brian right, it's very interesting that they are going to get together for a Pet Sounds aniversary.
Mike, Al and Bruce weren't that involved with it and were amongst the non-believers of Brian's creative trip. 40 years later
the tables have turned. That aside, I think it's cool they are going to be back as the Beach Boys.

IF that is true, than I am quite sure the backing group will be a mixed thing from all three fractions. I hope it will be Brian's band, since they don't need very much rehearsal, 'cause they already played it live and are perfect. Anyone got any insights, if this is really true ? I have my doubts about Brian wanting to tour (or just one cocnert) with Mike

That news gives me a really bad and creepy feeling. I really hope it isn´t true, because it sounds like Brian is forced to do this stuff. He spent the last couple of years to re-create his reputation as one of the great pop-composers, and it would be terrible if it ends at some country-fairs, where he is background-singer for the Mike Show.

Well, perfoming "Pet Sounds" isn't the worst thing to do....
I really doubt that they will go on tour afterwards, if the one concert will happen at all, but it ould be a nice way to lay the "Beach Boys" to rest finally.....

I'm really not sure about doing Pet Sounds. Brian's already done it anyway so what's the point, are you going to take away his leads (which he sang originally anyway) and give them to Al? I suppose getting Mike doing his bits is kind of cool but apart from that it seems stupid to do an album mainly sung by Brian, and which the most famous song was sung by Carl.  Why not put together a nice setlist that incorporates some a capella stuff that the group could still pull off, and then focus on the Mike Al Brian Bruce leads with a tribute each to Carl and Dennis.

Well, If this thing happens, bring in what is left of the "Wrecking Crew"!

That would be the ultimate petsounds live experience possible today, and fill in the gaps with band members.

First, I guess that concert will not be only-Pet Sounds. There will be some of the surfin'-songs, etc.  And the thing why they do "Pet Sounds" is, that they do it in tribute of the 40th anniversary, so it's very logical.

Actually, this seems like something that Brian WOULDN'T be forced to do. This might be more comfortable than his solo performances of Pet Sounds because he wouldn't have to "carry" the show, singing lead on every song, especially on songs that he wasn't the original lead vocalist on.

I never viewed the last couple of years as Brian "re-creating" his reputation as one of the great pop composers. Is that what you think Getting In Over My Head and What I Really Want For Christmas did? I'm not ignoring BWPS, but those songs were COMPOSED 37 years ago. Maybe that's why they called it Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE instead of Brian Wilson Composes (note present tense) SMiLE.

A 2006 Pet Sounds may or may not play county fairs, but some of the crowds at Brian's solo concerts were not much bigger than that.

I wouldn't view a Beach Boys concert with Brian, Mike, Al, Bruce, and David(?) as a "Mike Show", especially if Pet Sounds is performed. And what's wrong with Brian singing some/a lot of background vocals? He wrote 'em, and again, it might be more fun for Brian to harmonize a bit instead of singing lead on Surfin' USA, Barbara Ann, and Fun Fun Fun...

Personally, Brian doesn't need them anymore  Roll Eyes If it was him and Al, I would go but Mike and Bruce? I saw them in concert last night and they were so bad! I would've hoped they would've been better then last year but no it was worse!






Then again, anything with Brian I have to drop everything for  Grin

Generally, we're Brian's most loyal audience. Not to say the US doesn't have it's true believers, but, pound for pound, he gets more love here.

I can't disagree with that. I believe every Beach Boy album from Pet Sounds and thereafter made it higher in the charts in the UK than the US...those gosh-darn americans!

Come on people, read between the lines.

Mike is suing Brian for his use of the BB name in his touring and for finishing Smile.

The complaint mentioned Al by name and Al has been sued before.

Can we say, "compromise"?  As in, maybe that was what Mike wanted all along?  And that this is as much a legal manuever as a musical one?

That said, if they come to Ohio I am there.

A Florida based multi-millionaire and his sons (all suspiciously resembling Chuck LePage) took over Manchester United a while back. That takeover is yet to prove the disaster that many predicted. 'Til it does, I've nothing against the USA.

Right -- and in many of those predictions (including mine), the rationale was the legal side.  I.e., Mike suing Brian to get him to tour with him.  Brian is doing far better than Mike now and Brian could only help Mike's career now.  Plus Mike is most likely angry/jealous of Brian getting tour income that Mike doesn't get when Brian has taken a share of Mike's income for over 30 years.  Can't say I am not sympathetic if that is so.  So yes, I know it has been rumored -- but I think that the lawsuits are explanation.
