Beach Boys reuniting for 50th anniversary tour, album


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Beach Boys have been (California) dreamin’ about a possible band reunion for decades. Today, those dreams become reality.

The band announced in a statement that they will reunite, in commemoration of its 50th anniversary, for a world tour. Founding members Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine revealed that they’d be working on a new album, and conducting a 50-city tour throughout 2012.

“This anniversary is special to me because I miss the boys, and it will be a thrill for me to make a new record and be on stage with them again,” Wilson said in a statement.

“Music has been the unifying and harmonizing fact of life in our family since childhood,” Love added. “It has been a huge blessing that we have been able to share with the world. … Wouldn’t it be nice to do it again? Absolutely!”

The AP notes that the band was “supposed to announce their reunion as a surprise during the Recording Academy’s live nominations special for the Grammys last month, but those plans fell through.” Now Jardine hints that they have something special planned for the Grammys telecast on Feb. 12, to help generate interest in this reunion tour.

“We will do something really exciting. There’s a lot of interest in it, which is nice. It’s going to be a very big operation.”

The Beach Boys first concert has been scheduled for April 27 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
