The Beach Boys will revert back to their pre-anniversary line-up once the reunion tour with Brian Wilson is concluded in London later this month, according to Mike Love.
The legendary band were re-joined Brian Wilson, as well as Al Jardine and David Marks, for both a tour and new album this year to mark their 50th anniversary. But as those celebrations now draw to a conclusion, Love has said in a statement the future line-up will once again only consist of himself and Bruce Johnston, along with their longtime backing band.
“As we move on, Bruce and I look forward to performing live for Beach Boys fans everywhere,” the press release states. “The 50th Reunion Tour was designed to be a set tour with a beginning and an end to mark a special 50-year milestone for the band.”
Despite this, Brian Wilson has previously spoken of his desire to stay with the group beyond their 2012 commitments, telling Rolling Stone recently that he wants to “…continue touring with the Beach Boys indefinitely.”
