Al Jardine to Play with Brian Wilson; Will Miss Beach Boys’ Show

The Beach Boys’ “Fun, Fun, Fun” tour celebrating the 50th anniversary of their hit song will roll through Jones Beach on July 5 with a special show that was originally supposed to see Mike Love and longtime keyboardist Bruce Johnston team up with original members Al Jardine and David Marks.

Now, Al Jardine confirmed on his Facebook page that he will instead perform with Brian Wilson, who separated from the band following their own 50th anniversary tour, on the same day in the U.K. There is no word as to whether David Marks is still slated to perform at Jones Beach or not.

The “Fun Fun Fun” tour also features Jeff Foskett, who will be replacing Love’s son Christian in the band. Foskett was a touring member of The Beach Boys in the 80s. The surviving members of the band—Love, Jardine, Marks, Wilson, Johnston and Foskett—have not performed together since the band’s 2012 50th anniversary tour.

Wilson did not separate from the band after the 50th tour – it was Love who left the tour to go back to his cover band. BIG difference!
