about the beach boys


The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in 1961 in Hawthorne, California. The group was initially composed of brothers Brian,Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Managed by the Wilsons' father Murry, The Beach Boys signed toCapitol Records in 1962. The band's early music gained popularity across the United States for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. By the mid-1960s, leader Brian Wilson's growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group's musical direction. The primarily Brian-composed Pet Sounds album and "Good Vibrations" single (both released in 1966) featured a complex, intricate and multi-layered sound that was a far cry from the simple surf rock of The Beach Boys' early years.
Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine and the rest of the gang will reunite for their 50th anniversary tour starting April 24 in Tulsa, AZ, and wrapping three long months later on July 15 in Stateline, NV. No, Foster the People and Maroon 5 will not be there, as they were on Sunday; we're assuming John Stamos won't be there, either (save for a few gigs he'll inevitably attend). Full tour dates and the collaborative Grammys performance below.

As for the Wilson-produced reunion album, the only date is "sometime this year," though they've reportedly hit the recording studio already. Fans can expect a handful more tour dates to be announced, with Capitol promising a 50-date tour back in December.
