News: THE BEACHBOYS – Live 50th Anniversary Tour CD

The Beach Boys are pleased to announce their new concert album, Live – The 50th Anniversary Tour, a 2CD and digital collection of 41 standout recordings from their acclaimed 2012 reunion tour.

Last year’s reunion of Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks for a new studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio, and The Beach Boys’ 50th Anniversary Tour, the band’s first major outing to include Wilson in more than two decades, made headlines around the world as one of the year’s top entertainment stories.

The sold-out tour took the group to more than 70 cities around the world, including their first concert at the Hollywood Bowl since 1965, headlining performances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and tour-closing concerts at London’s O2 Arena and Royal Albert Hall.

For five decades, America’s first pop band to reach the 50 year milestone has recorded and performed the music that has become the world’s favorite soundtrack to summer. Founded in Hawthorne, California in 1961, The Beach Boys originally comprised the three Wilson brothers: Brian, Carl and Dennis, their cousin Mike Love, and school friend Al Jardine. In 1962, neighbor David Marks joined the group for their first wave of hits with Capitol Records, leaving in late 1963, and in 1965, Bruce Johnston joined the band when Brian Wilson retired from touring to focus on writing and producing for the group.

The Beach Boys signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin’ Safari, that same year. The album spent 37 weeks on the Billboard chart, launching the young group known for its shimmering vocal harmonies and relaxed California style into international stardom. The Wilson/Love collaboration resulted in many huge international chart hits, and the band’s initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include other themes, making The Beach Boys America’s pre-eminent band of the 1960s.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are an American institution that is iconic around the world.
