Im assuming more July and August dates will be added. 

Perhaps, Mike is lessening his workload a bit in 2018?  In honestly, thats probably overdue especially when you consider the amount of shows their peers, such as McCartney, Ringo, The Stones, The Who, Roger Waters do these days.

I gotta assume a lot more dates will be added. I can't see him backing off unless physically unable to tour.
Looking at this years 'official' photo, it looks like Mike has slimmed down a bit. But maybe that's photoshop, lol.

Historically on this board, there has always been little interest in Mike's tour dates (certainly for a tour that tours all year, every year).

One can obviously interpret that as something that is more to do with this board, or more to do with the quality and/or ubiquitous nature of Mike's never-ending touring. I'd say it's mostly the latter.

Also, if one has followed Mike's tour and scheduling habits over the years, they will have found that Mike never really "announces" a tour. He never unveils a tour schedule. It just sort of continually exists and is updated on an ongoing basis. It takes a few months into the year for summer tour dates to fill out.

All of this is a result of over-extending the brand and never taking a break from touring. It would actually be a big deal, worth "announcing" a big tour, if Mike wasn't doing 150 shows per year, every year. There's no buzz factor. Mike's tour runs off of brand name recognition, pure momentum, and fluff pieces a week or two in advance in many of the markets he hits.

Most likely.   July and August are pretty bare right now. 

I wonder if there will be a theme.  I doubt Friends50.

The former is caused by the latter. There's a reason people don't care to follow his touring. Using the BB name, past years of sub-par shows, an antagonistic and insulting attitude towards his former bandmates, a show increasingly focused on backing members singing leads, and his dilution of the band due to excessive touring, are all causes of disinterest among many fans.

The audience Mike *does* have is often extremely casual. I know more about his band lineup, history, and member changes, etc. than most of the people that go to his shows.

The first paragraph sums up my feelings. I will defend Mike’s talent until the end of time, but how he treats people rubs me the wrong way, and some of the people whom he associates with I find odious (not referring to his band which is mostly excellent).

I don't think they did any shows from December 10th through February 10th.  I'd have to check Bellagio, but I don't think they've taken off two consecutive months for quite some time.

Seeing that he's got more money than he'll ever need in this life, I'd say it would be a good gesture to donate his cut of the proceeds to the families that lost loved ones. but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

While I too think that more dates will be coming, it is unusual for the summer in particular to be so light right now. It's also unusual for them to take over two full months off from December into February. I can't help but wonder if Bruce's health is a factor here. I'm not trying to be rude, he does not look healthy at all.

Another possibility could be that Mike and Bruce are jumping on this package tour craze that is really sweeping the classic rock/oldies circuit this year. There are a LOT of package tours this summer...more than usual...and they're pretty much all bands that are lacking key members. Mike and Bruce would fit right in. Even though they typically don't "announce" a tour, something like this would probably yield an announcement...and would explain why there's a big block of the summer still open.

I don't know what Mike's tour plans are for this year, but again, it takes until several months into the year to fill out the summer tour schedule. You can even go back to the "Internet Wayback Machine" and look at things like the BBFC website and see that as of, say, February 2016, the summer 2016 tour schedule wasn't filled out.

No offense to Bruce, but I doubt his health figures heavily into Mike's tour schedule. If Bruce decided to leave the road (or was otherwise unable to tour), I doubt Mike would change what he's doing so long as *he* (Mike) is doing whatever he wants to do.

I could certainly envision Mike finally going at least a *little* lighter on the tour schedule, not even so much because he can't handle the work load (again, no offense, but the other guys in the band are doing most of the heavy lifting), but because the backing band can occasionally sound a big tired and ragged when they do like 14 shows in 15 days like they sometimes have done on recent tours, and also because I'd imagine maybe Mike actually wants to enjoy non-touring life at least a *little* more.

The Beach Boys will be playing the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal this July. Although confirmed, the date has not been released yet. Seeing as they are playing the Ottawa area on the 21st, one could assume it will be that same weekend, either the 20'th or 21st. Outdoor stage, Free show.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Mike need Bruce, or some other "original" BB to maintain the touring license?

I don't think that applies any longer. Years ago, there was a clause that mandated a certain  number of Beach Boys appear at a show, may have even been at least 1 Wilson appear on stage. Could be wrong though.

I don't think that's the case as I believe the licensing agreement was drawn up after Carl's passing.

While we're obviously not privy to the precise ins-and-outs of the licensing agreement, it appears that there is no longer any requirement for more than one Beach Boy on stage.

If I had to guess, I would guess the license would require Mike to be present (and even if it didn't, I HIGHLY doubt Mike would let a show go on without him).

But given Bruce's hand full of short absences in the post-1998 timeframe, it would appear there's no requirement for him or any second "core" member to be there.

There was a period of time after Carl's passing where all of this was a bit murky. I recall an interview with David Marks back soon after he left in 1999 where, as I recall, he implied one of the reasons he was brought on was to keep a certain core number of core/original members on stage. But this probably applied to his entrance into the band in 1997 prior to Carl's death.

Mike first had a non-exclusive license by July of 1998 or so. I don't know if there were any minimum member requirements at that time. But it appears that by the time he had the exclusive license in 1999, any requirement was no longer in place. Hence, David Marks leaving in July 1999 did not result in frantic calls to Al Jardine to recruit him back into the band.
