See How the Beach Boys Are Still Celebrating Their 50th Anniversary
The Beach Boys are continuing to celebrate their 50th anniversary into 2014 as the recently reunited group sets off on a summer tour honoring the half-century birthday of their iconic song “Fun, Fun, Fun.”
Mike Love is the only original member that still tours with the group, though Bruce Johnston has been with them since 1967, when Brian Wilson ceased touring with the band. They will be joined for their summer 2014 dates by Jeffrey Foskett, who has worked with the band since 1981, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, and Scott Totten. A special appearance at Jones Beach in Long Island, New York, on July 5 is promised to involve appearances from original members Al Jardine and David Marks. The remainder of the dates sees the band hitting many states and performing a handful of shows in Europe, as well.
“Year after year, it’s been a great source of inspiration to see the happiness our music has brought to multiple generations of Beach Boys fans in so many parts of the world,” Mike Love said in a statement seen by Rolling Stone. “This summer I’m particularly excited for the Jones Beach show, which is such a terrific, iconic venue. It will be very special to share the stage with some old friends and bandmates, Al Jardine and David Marks.”
