The Beach Boys Plan 100-Date Anniversary Tour

July 22, 2010 (7:30 am) GMT
Al Jardine and Mike Love are keen about the reunion project which is planned to mark the group's 50th anniversary in 2011.

Al Jardine has confirmed the original are planning a major reunion to mark the group's 50th anniversary in 2011 - and it will probably be a free extravaganza. Bandmate Mike Love recently suggested he'd be teaming up with the three original members of the group for shows in 2011 and now Jardine has more details about what could be one of the gigs of next year.

Jardine, who has been pushing for a full Beach Boys reunion for years, tells RollingStone.com the band will reunite for at least one concert. He says, "It's a big deal. I don't know where it will be yet, but it'll probably be free. Golden Gate Park (in San Francisco) was mentioned, as was the (National) Mall in Washington, D.C. and the north shore of Chicago, by the beach."

But band leader has yet to confirm his plans for a reunion. His manager, Jean Sievers, says, "Brian has a big new album coming out in August, and that's what he's a hundred per cent focused on."

Jardine, however, has big plans: "I want to see a 100-date anniversary tour. I want to go all around the world... If we're going to rehearse and make this such a wonderful show, we should take it on the road. It's the next logical step."
