The Beach Boys (i.e., Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and Some Other Guys) to Play the Schermerhorn Oct. 15

Posted By on Tue, Aug 20, 2013 at 11:48 AM

So, we all know that after last year's 50th anniversary tour — which included a stop at Bonnaroo 2012 — self-appointed band leader Mike Love "contractually dismissed" founding Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks from the band, which felt to Wilson like getting fired. And even if Love says it'd be cool to have Wilson back, Wilson doesn't seem to think that's ever going to happen.

Well, the tyranny of Love continues, as The Beach Boys (i.e., Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and a backing band, pictured at left) have announced more tour dates, an Oct. 15 stop at Nashville's recently-had-its-massive-mortgage-significantly-reduced Schermerhorn Symphony Center among them. Actually, I'd like you to read the blurb that was included in a press release about the Schermerhorn show:

You'll have "Fun, Fun, Fun" when The Beach Boys perform for the first time at the Schermerhorn! After more than a half-century of making hits, this iconic group sounds every bit as fresh as they did in 1961, when they launched their massive career with "Surfin'." Led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, they'll play all your favorites, from "Help Me, Rhonda" to "Good Vibrations"!

Fancy that! Tickets for the Oct. 15 show go on sale this Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. via this link.

Oh hey, also: The O'Jays just announced that they'll play the Schermerhorn on Nov. 10.
