Despite the original Beach Boys 50th anniversary in 2012 ending in disarray and bad blood — Al Jardine says the group is eying the possibilities for its 60th. Mike Love, who controls the license to tour under the group's moniker, opted out of carrying on with the original group following the band's blockbuster “Celebration 50” tour, preferring to tour with his own band, which includes 51-year Beach Boys veteran Bruce Johnson.
Jardine, who now tours as part of Brian Wilson's band, told Rolling Stone that some type of road trek with the surviving members — him, Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks is being considered: “I do believe we will. Well, not a tour. We’ll hit some very important. . . 10 or 20 areas of the world. Who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky and have a renaissance, and present some of this great material again. It’s difficult to say, but it makes sense. I know there’s something in the works. I just can’t tell you when or where.”
Mike Love, wasn't convinced a tour would be a good idea, but was quoted as saying, “I think it would be good to do something noting that it’s a pretty remarkable milestone. I don’t know what, exactly. I think a TV special would be really nice, honestly.”
