Mike Love plans Beach Boys shows without Brian Wilson
Mike Love has apparently booked Autumn dates with his touring version of the Beach Boys, without the group's other principal founding members.
The reunited Beach Boys are currently in the middle of a 50th anniversary tour. But, according to Rolling Stone, Love is already planning his own shows, including South America in October.
When asked by Rolling Stone whether he was aware of Love's plans, Brian Wilson said: "I wasn't aware that Mike had some shows in South America. News to me."
The various former members of the Beach Boys have all toured under different names, with their own bands. Mike Love has licensed the Beach Boys name since 1998, Al Jardine has performed with his Endless Summer Band and Wilson with his own band.
The band - Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks - will play London's Royal Albert Hall on September 27 and Wembley Arena on September 28.
