Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray
The material for the new release was captured live during the band's 75-date world reunion tour and features 21 songs.
Said Marc Bennett, Co-Director of The Beach Boys 50- Live in Concert: "To document this once-in-a-lifetime moment in music history as The Beach Boys embarked on their 50th year anniversary world tour was an experience I still have not come down from. This show is a solidification of their legacy and a tribute to creative endurance and artistic achievement that crosses all cultural and geographical boundaries. In spite of the obstacles they may have encountered over the years, they have reached this 50th year milestone as few bands have ever done, or even imagined. What they leave behind, as captured in this performance, is a body of work that is indelibly etched in music history and popular culture on a global level."
"It was truly an honor to be allowed to capture this historic performance. The song selection allows fans both new and old a chance to fully appreciate the span and depth of the Beach Boys catalogue. This DVD includes performances from their hits in the early 60's to selections from their latest Top 3 Album. To be able to film all five surviving members of this historic band, together one more time…was certainly a dream come true," said Joe Thomas, co-director of The Beach Boys 50- Live in Concert.
"The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary tour meant so much to me personally," said The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson. "Performing with the guys again was an absolute thrill. I'm so glad we captured it on film so that everyone, whether you were there or not, will be able to see what an historic event it was."
"The 50th Anniversary Tour was a historic, special event," The Beach Boys' Mike Love said. "This DVD captures the tour brilliantly and marks an important, iconic moment in time in our band's history. It's a moment I am deeply proud of."
