The reunited Beach Boys set totour Australia

The Beach Boy’s 50th anniversary tour will be coming to Australia. Although the tour dates haven’t been announced but press release from Capitol Records hyping the band’s first new album since since 1996’s country-misadventure Stars and Stripes Vol. 1 has revealed that “details of an Australia, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong tour [will] be announced soon!”.

The remaining members of The Beach Boys – Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marksregrouped in December last year and will release their 29th studio album in June. Songs on the new record include the lead single _ That’s Why God Made The Radio_, Think About The Days, Isn’t It Time, Spring Vacation, Private Life Of Bill And Sue, Shelter, Daybreak Over The Ocean, Beaches In Mind, Strange World, My Life Suite, and Summer’s Gone.

Brian Wilson has been a bi-annual visitor in recent years touring the Smile album in 2004, returning with his teleprompter for Splendour in 2006, the Sydney Festival in 2008 and a run of shows in November 2010. And the version of The Beach Boys that was just Mike Love and Bruce Johnston with a handful of ring-ins also toured Australia recently playing shows in 2007 and returning for a headline gig at the Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercar races in 2010 with a set that was met with a tirade of lip-sync accusations.

With the full gang back together for their 50th anniversary celebrations this tour is certain to be something special.

Paging Cr1zZ for another international band snubbing New Zealand on their Australian tour

Not a huge Beach Boys fan but I'd probably go if it came here. Which it won't.

Replace "Morning Glory" with "Definitely Maybe" and I'll agree with you!!

Absolutely. Except not. At all. Even in the slightest.

just watching some Becker and there was a scene where he was offered tickets to see the Beach Boys and he replied "when the ramp to your stage isn't for the equipment it's time to give it up"

thought i would share that.
