The Beach Boys to tour well into 2018
Capitol Concerts/YouTube

The Beach Boys will be touring across the United States off and on over the next eight months, as part of an impressively busy performance schedule that will now run well into 2018. Announced over the weekend, the band will be picking up right where they left off shortly after the start of the new year with 19 newly added shows scheduled throughout February, March and June of next year.

The classic rock band, which became one of the biggest names in popular music thanks to their radio-friendly, sunny California-themed rock, is now lead by its only remaining original member in Mike Love. The surviving original members had reunited back in 2012 for their 50th Reunion Tour, but have gone their own ways with Brian Wilson also doing his own touring in celebration of Pet Sounds also turning 50 years old recently.

Love recently released his own autobiography titled, Good Vibrations: My Life as a Beach Boy. The book looks tells his story of the role he played in helping the group to become one of the biggest bands in popular culture, and helping to define the never-growing-old generation that came to age in the 1960s. Love also commented recently on how at his age, he and his current Beach Boy members are still able to keep up with a touring schedule that would even tire out some artist in their 20s.

“The reason I’m still doing what I’m doing at the level we’re doing it, meaning a volume of work and stuff like that, is probably because I chose a path that wasn’t a path of all the nefarious drugs that my cousins did,” Love told the Sacramento Bee back in September. Like many artists whose careers include a demanding performance schedule night after night, Love turned to a common practice of overcoming his older age in an industry meant for youth - meditation.

“Once I learned to meditate, I gave up hard liquor and anything to do with drugs,” Love continued. “So that meditation has given me the ability to relax and yet gain more energy and clarity and be able to – what would you call it? – withstand the negatives that are thrown at you, that life does.”

The band recently reunited with Fuller House favorite John Stamos and Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath this past Independence Day, for a concert performance in front of the U.S. Captiol Building in Washington, DC. The performance can be watched in the video above.
