I'm pretty neutral/ambivalent about the prospect at this point, but any theories (whether founded or not) that the band might A) Do a 60th anniversary reunion tour and B) Do it in 2021 instead of 2022 because, well, I can only assume it's a case of "we're not getting any younger" are both out the window if Mike's planning on essentially redoing most of his 2020 dates in 2021.

As I said, I'm pretty neutral (at best) about a reunion at this stage. They had enormous luck (and put it plenty of amazing effort) pulling off C50 in 2012. I just don't know if anyone outside of Al is going to sound nearly as good a DECADE after a 50th reunion tour.

With Mike and Bruce now having commitments in 2021 ranging from April through August, and Brian & Al having the European tour. I see no way that a reunion like Al detailed could take place in 2021. Sure, 2022 is a possibility. But for 2021? Half the year is now caught up in separate commitments.

If anything, a lost year might invite the prospect of a bumper money-earning anniversary year more than not. So there is that....

Very true. And while I appreciate the updates on cancellations, I don't know how any venue anywhere in this country expects to hold a concert through August at the absolute earliest. Truthfully, I think the entirety of 2020 is out at this point, but I'm sure some exceptions will find their way through.

The only way Mike might do concerts any time soon is something like this (which probably won't happen on schedule either) :

https://www.pollstar.com/article/arkansas-theatre-reduces-capacity-sets-up-fan-pods-to-host-may-15-concert-144495

I don't think Mike can afford to go to 20% capacity at shows.  It would reduce his average attendance to 250-350 or so. And it's still arguably an absurd way to conduct a concert, with enjoyment reduced,  and still with plenty of risk.  And unlike the guy trying this concert,  Mike is almost 80 years old and at far more risk himself (Bruce as well obviously).

It’s funny how he thinks he’ll be able to do shows some time this year, according to the RS interview.

Seriously, I think it's better to just assume everything is canceled for 2020. Concert venues are going to open *after* movie theaters and that ilk. Concerts and large sporting events are literally just about *last* on the list re-open.

The headline will be if or when someone confirms a Mike or Brian show is going forward.

The only way I see Mike pushing through and doing gigs this year is if it gets even crazier than it already is in some regions. If these crazy incidents of people willing to die and potentially kill others to eat at a waffle house in Arkansas ramp up and people start trying to do concerts despite all warnings, then the current political climate (polls show, whether we like it or not, a clear political divide between who is taking the pandemic more seriously versus those who think "the worst is behind us") might dictate that Mike, who demonstrably leans towards the political side that is taking this pandemic *less* seriously (his Trump support is well known of course, and he also recently did a weird sort of video endorsement of the Republican Ohio governor) and who, within a few more months, will not have spent this much time off the road since 1961, may try to scrape together something like the attempted show I mentioned a few posts back.

Mike would probably eat the cost of trying a *few* shows out with this absurd "pod" layout where he'll be playing to 200 people. But even if he were as gung-ho as can be about doing that sort of tour, the economics of the situation would not allow for a great deal of touring. Some states and counties surely won't be having any concerts this year, and Mike likely can't raise ticket prices much given that potential ticket buyers will generally be in much more financial peril.

Best case scenario is that it takes a couple of years to get back to "normal" for tours, which means, as I mentioned in another thread, we may well never again see a "Beach Boys" tour doing 100+ shows per year, outside of a licensed version with no original members 5 or 10 years from now.

Unlikely for Mike/ Reunited Beach Boys, but for other artists 2020 can mean only one thing. Writing new material and possibly recording. Concerts are out. Potentially there could be a lot of new material from acts next year. Not necessarily grand albums but more ‘Unplugged’ and from home studios even. Just my 2 cents.
