Are the Beach Boys reuniting next year for their 60th anniversary??? Well, depends on whom you ask. During a recent chat, Al Jardine revealed to Chicago Concert Reviews: “Oh, it will happen. We’ll probably do about 20 or 30 (shows) together next year.”
The co-founding members reunited for a massively successful 50th celebration back in 2012, which ended after Mike Love — who controls the license to the touring entity “The Beach Boys” — opted out of continuing with Jardine, his cousin Brian Wilson, and David Marks — in order to go back and tour in smaller venues and second-tier markets with his backing band and longtime Beach Boy Bruce Johnston.
When asked by Rolling Stone if a 60th anniversary jaunt is a possibility, the 79-year-old Love responded, “I’m not against anything like that. Anything that’s creative and done for positive reasons is good with me. We will continue thinking about stuff like that and see what we can do.”
