Brian Wilson and co to reunite in 2011
[b]The Beach Boys[/b] are set to reform for a 50th anniversary show.
As Rolling Stone reports, founding member and guitarist [b]Al Jardine[/b] has revealed that the group will reunite to perform and that the gig will “probably be free”.
“We’re definitely doing at least one show,” [b]Jardine[/b] said. “It’s a big deal. I don’t know where it will be yet, but it’ll probably be free. [b]Golden Gate Park[/b] was mentioned, as was the [[b]National[/b]] [b]Mall[/b] in [b]Washington[/b], [b]DC[/b], and the north shore of [b]Chicago[/b] by the beach.”
Going on to confirm that the line-up for the show would include [b]Brian Wilson[/b], [b]Mike Love[/b], [b]Bruce Johnston[/b] and possibly even early guitarist [b]David Marks[/b], the guitarist went on to explain that he wants the band to tour.
“I want to see a hundred-date anniversary tour,” he admitted. “I want to go all around the world, but if this is the way it has to be, then so be it.”
He added: “We’re going to have to rehearse one hell of a show. My point is, if we’re going to rehearse and make this such a wonderful show, we should take it on the road.”
