Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks Will Tour Without Mike Love
Classic Beach Boys members Al Jardine and David Marks will join Brian Wilson on tour this summer and fall. Wilson, Beach Boys co-founder Jardine and ’60s Beach Boys guitarist Marks will be backed by Wilson’s longtime solo band.
The three Beach Boys reconnected last year for the band’s 50th anniversary celebration. Along with Beach Boys frontman Mike Love and longtime member Bruce Johnston, the musicians recorded a new studio album and toured the world. This past fall Love—who holds the legal rights to tour under the Beach Boys banner—made the controversial decision not to extend the band’s reunion run. He is currently on the road as the Beach Boys with Johnston and members of the touring band he’s utilized since 1998.
Wilson and Jardine collaborated at a Christmas show this past December and announced a joint Dayton, OH date earlier in the year. The longtime collaborators have now confirmed a handful of new shows with Marks.
