Beach Boys Reuniting At Grammy Awards

03:01 PM Wednesday 2/8/12 |   |

Back in November we predicted The Beach Boys might be the mystery band reuniting at the Grammy Nominations concert. That didn’t happen because it turns out Brian Wilson and the gang were holding out to perform this weekend at the Grammy Awards.

The appearance at the Feb. 12 awards show, which pushes the band’s previously announced reunion up a few months, will mark the first time The Beach Boys have performed together live in more than two decades. 

In December EMI announced that Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks were joining forces once again for a new studio album and commemorative catalogue releases with Capitol/EMI along with a 50-date international tour. The tour begins April 27 with a headline performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The only other dates that have been announced so far are an Aug. 3 gig at Berlin’s O2 World and an Aug. 4 show in Stuttgart, Germany, at the Hanns Martin Schleyer Halle. 

On Sunday The Beach Boys will share the stage with current Grammy nominees Foster The People and Maroon 5 for a special performance.

Hosted by LL Cool J, the 54th annual awards show is being held at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Fans can tune in from home by watching the broadcast on CBS, listening to Westwood One/Dial Global radio, or logging onto Grammy.com, CBS.com or YouTube.

The long list of previously announced performers includes Adele, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson, Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood, Chris Brown, Glen Campbell with The Band Perry and Blake Shelton, Coldplay and Rihanna, Deadmau5, and Foo Fighters.

Stars taking the stage as presenters include Marc Anthony, Dierks Bentley, Jack Black, Drake, Fergie and Lady Antebellum.

    ditto! Foster the People is fine but Maroon 5, I can think of about 100 other bands more suited for that job. I just had to rinse my mouth out because it tasted like puke.

    I thought the same thing as I read the article.

    Any artist in the world would have dropped everything to share the Grammy stage with the original Beach Boys and they went with Maroon 5? I think I just threw up in my mouth.
