The Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary reunion tour will come to a conclusion later this month, as Rolling Stone reports. Following a two-night stand in London, the band will return to tour North America in October without Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, and David Marks. Mike Love and Bruce Johnston will instead by joined by their longtime backing band for the run of dates.

As part of the reunion, the band toured the country extensively, played sets at both New Orleans Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo, and released their reunion album That’s Why God Made the Radio, as well as a number of greatest hits compilations and reissues.

Wilson previously expressed interest in continuing to write and tour with the band. However, in a press release, Love said “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.”

Well I guess Mike isn’t quite the “good guy” I thought he’d become! Too bad for Brian, Al and David, or is it???

We don’t know the whole story. I think it’s fair that people give everyone an opportunity to explain. I’m very happy if Mike will continue to tour. All the concerts I went to with his group were simply amazing and so much fun. Yes the reunion tour concert was the best ever and can’t be topped but oh well.
