Beach Boys To Tour In 2012, Record Album
I think America needs this type of news story. With all the rancor and discord that abounds around the nation some fond memory-makers are just what we need.
After months of haggling, the surviving members of the Beach Boys have agreed to tour and record a new album.
In a press release issued today, the band’s label Capitol/EMI said original members Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine, as well as David Marks, who replaced Jardine briefly in the early years, and Bruce Johnston, who joined the band to fill Wilson’s spot once he stopped touring, will play 50 shows including the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, held over two weekends in late April and early May.
