Beach Boys Update
Beach Boys and Brian Wilson Reunite for Tour: Here’s a holiday gift you, your dad, and Panda Bear can get excited about: Brian Wilson is reuniting with the Beach Boys — who, let’s face it, were never really the Beach Boys without him. The band, which will now consist of Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, David Marks, and Bruce Johnston, plans to embark upon a 50-date tour, beginning with April’s New Orleans Jazz Fest. The news comes about six weeks after the release of The Smile Sessions, roughly 45 years after the legendary lost Beach Boys album was recorded.
