Will Brian Wilson reunite with Beach Boys for 50th?

By | Published on Monday 21 June 2010

US entertainment journalist Robin Leech has claimed in the Las Vegas Sun that Brian Wilson may rejoin Mike Love on stage to celebrate the Beach Boys’ fiftieth anniversary next year, which would be big news given all the bad blood that has existed between the various former Beach Boys over the years, Wilson and Love in particular. 

Wilson stopped performing with the Beach Boys in the mid-sixties, even though he was still a member of the band until 1970. He last joined them on stage in 1985 at Live Aid. Wilson, of course, has performed as a solo artist with increased frequency in recent years, often playing Beach Boys songs.

Leech recently interviewed Love, and wrote last week: “The Beach Boys are gearing up for next year’s 50th anniversary, and Mike Love told me that his cousin, founder and longtime member Brian Wilson, is reuniting with them for celebration concerts”.
