No (Mike) Love At Upcoming Brian Wilson Concert
Brian Wilson has just announced, via his website, an upcoming concert at the Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio, on July 25. Interestingly, the post also mentions that “special guests Al Jardine and David Marks will be performing with Brian.”
Wilson, Jardine and Marks, of course, were part of last year’s Beach Boys reunion tour. But Mike Love owns the license to the group’s name, and late last year, he announced that the reunion tour had run its course, and that the group would continue with its pre-reunion incarnation.
Wilson, Marks and Jardine expressed disappointment with that development, with Jardine going so far to start a Facebook petition to get Love to change his mind (he didn’t).
While only one Wilson/Jardine/Marks show has been scheduled, it seems like the trio of former Beach Boys could bring more “good vibrations,” sans Mike Love, to fans in 2013.
Tickets for the Fraze Pavilion show go on sale on January 26 at 9:00 a.m.
