The Beach Boys are capitalizing off their highly visible re-introduction on the Grammy Awards from Sunday, and are confirming their extensive spring and summer tour for 2012.
The newly reunited, surviving members of the Boys crew will hit the road starting on April 24, in celebration of their 50-year anniversary. They are included in the previously released lineup for the 2012 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn., and have firmed up a stop at New Orleans Jazz Fest.
The onsales for many tickets start next week, with one of the dates already sold out (their first of two nights at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.).
Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks are also plotting a new studio release for 2012, to be produced by Wilson and executive produced by Love. EMI/Capitol are also repackaging the legendary group’s back catalog.
Here are the Beach Boys’ tour dates:
April 28: Atlanta, GAChastain Park Amphitheater (March 11)
