Touring together for the first time in more than two decades, Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks catch that perfect wave beginning in Arizona in April.
Sure, The Beach Boys have played plenty of dates during the past twenty years. But this time you can experience Brian Wilson playing with his comrades once more, just like he did on this year’s Grammy Awards telecast.
The boys have a few festival stops in the grand plan – April 27 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, June 10 at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee and July 1 at Milwaukee’s Summerfest.
Disc-wise, The Beach Boys will release an album in 2012 filled with new songs. The group is also working with Capitol/EMI to release a greatest hits collection as well as a box set.
Although the band released dates for North America today, the tour is going global. So far two Euro dates have surfaced – Berlin’s O2 World Aug. 3 and Stuttgart, Germany at Hanns Martin Schleyer Halle Aug. 4.
