Mike Love's Beach Boys Heading Back On The Road
A year after their triumphant Grammy Awards reunion performance, a sold out North American tour, and a Top Three album -- the original Beach Boys have splintered into two factions. Mike Love, who holds the license to tour under the Beach Boys banner, has announced a string of 2013 dates with longtime bandmate Bruce Johnston; while Brian Wilson is said to be close to announcing a handful of his own shows with Beach Boys co-founders Al Jardine and David Marks.
Mike Love's Beach Boys will kick off their dates for the year on February 15th in Fort Meyers, Florida, with the last shows on the books set for May 24th in Norfolk, Nebraska. So far, Brian Wilson, Jardine, and Marks have only one date announced for July 25th at Kettering, Ohio's Fraze Pavilion For The Performing Arts
Love, who's pretty much been on tour since 1962, told us that if performing is what you do, playing live as often as possible can only make you better at it: "Everybody forgets when they start out they do four or five sets a night in a nightclub, y'know (laughs)? And then all of a sudden if you do more than one show, you're gonna kill yourself, or something -- I mean, some people are like that. But I've always found that the more you sing, the stronger your voice gets."
