They have a new photo on their tour dates page that now includes Keith as well as Christian Love. It also looks like Mike and Bruce's faces have been poorly digitally enhanced to look younger and brighter. It's pretty creepy.

That ones not terrible but i see what you’re saying about the creepy part. I saw another pic in an article about them and that one was weird looking too. See below

Exactly! Bruce's face looks exceptionally unnatural in that photo.

It feels like Summer, and America's Band is filling up their schedule.

Unfortunately, by tying the official "Beach Boys" page in with bookings for Mike's version of the band, you get stuff like this:

https://www.facebook.com/events/1708943499184238

A pic of the old/original BBs (in this case the banner pic from the BB FB page, which is the upcoming London Philharmonic album) is essentially being used to promote Mike's tour. Hopefully they can fix this.

I *actually* thought when I got the notification that they were perhaps doing an "orchestral" show based on the BB album, essentially the recent Orbison UK hologram tour minus the hologram, perhaps playing the new album live with a live orchestra playing along with the old recordings.

But no, I think this is just Mike's tour.

I don't know how they're going to physically survive the month of August. Overall, this is a light year for Mike and Bruce with touring, but the month of August is on steroids compared to the rest of the summer, and calendar year for that matter.

23 shows in 26 days in August; that's seems pretty normal for Mike's tour (last year was pretty similar; 20 shows over 24 days). And I do feel bad for the people who catch the shows on the tail end of that run especially, as I recall last year that pro-shot benefit show that was up online for a few days was taken from the tail end of a really long run of shows, and the band seemed pretty tired and lacking in energy.

They also have some heavy travel, in relation to quirky scheduling surounding some Canadian dates. They are way up in Timmins Onrario for a show on June 30, then in California the next day. They also have shows in Ottawa and Montreal on the 21st and 23rd of July. A nice easy travel stretch as these cities are less than 2 hours apart by car. BUT they are doing a gig in Edmonton, halfway across the Country in between on the 22nd!! Can't say these guys don't giver'!!

Yes, I recall last August was packed because I saw the 2nd show in one day after about seven days of straight shows. It wasn't bad...but it showed. Musically, and in Bruce's obtuse personality. But doesn't the rest of the summer months (June & July) seem less active than usual this year?

The end of last year and beginning of this year seemed a bit lighter than usual for Mike. It may well be that he's just letting up a *tiny bit* on the schedule. I think a recent interview he did had him acknowledging that this year is slightly lighter than last year in total shows.

Surprised by how heavy the Cowsill version of "Wild Honey" is. He was practically screaming it at points, which was great.

He was very displeased that Mike doesn't seem to think all audiences would enjoy that song when I saw them last summer and asked why the song wasn't included in the encore. I think Mike has a good concept of "flow" in a setlist however, I think he has a poor concept of pleasing the variety of listeners that come to their shows.

Oops, looks like this article (about Keith Moon digging the Beach Boys) incorrectly suggested Al was playing with Mike and Bruce for the Hampton Court shows:

When he says  Brian , Dennis, Carl, and Al wouldn’t have allowed it, he is saying he would have dumped Dennis for Keith?
