Beach Boys Reuniting for Album and 50th Anniversary Tour

.
(Gibson) The Beach Boys have announced plans to reform for their 50th anniversary. Founding members Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, plus David Marks and Bruce Johnston, plan a new studio album and a 50-date international tour beginning in April.

No touring dates have yet been confirmed, but the band will appear as headliners at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (April 27 to May 6, 2012). New commemorative releases are also planned for 2012, including a new Beach Boys hits collection and a career-spanning box set.

Frontman Brian Wilson said of the reunion: "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."

Mike Love added: "We got together at Capitol Records and re-recorded 'Do It Again.' Brian and I wrote that song which went to #1 in Great Britain, Australia and elsewhere some 44 years ago. Brian paid me a compliment saying, 'How can a guy sound that great so many years later?' Later on, while working out some harmonies on a new song Brian had written, I got a chance to return the compliment. more on this story
