Take that, Mike Love!
Brian Wilson has announced a live performance next summer at the Fraze Pavillion in Kettering, Ohio, joined by original Beach Boys members Al Jardine and David Marks. All three were on board for last summer's Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour, but were "fired" from further touring by Beach Boy Mike Love, who controls the Beach Boys' name.
That maneuver came as a disappointment to Wilson fans and Wilson himself, who was vocal in saying how much fun he had recording and touring with the reunited lineup.
So, it looks like this summer will see two Beach Boys groups playing live: Love's lineup with himself and Bruce Johnson, and Wilson's. I know which one I'd want to go see.
