October 10th might technically be the fall, but it'll be an "Endless Summer" with The Beach Boys when they hit the Majestic Theatre next month. Mike Love and the gang bring their "Wild Honey" tour to Dallas, TX to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the album. They'll be playing choice cuts from the record and all the classic hits we know and love.
For those who have been living under a rock for the past 56 years or so, The Beach Boys formed in 1961 and helped establish the "California Sound" that captured the essence of optimistic teenage life by providing surfers and hot rod rebels a soundtrack for their adventures. The aesthetic soon spread across the nation and then worldwide, creating a youthful movement that celebrated the sunny side of life and love. Even if you couldn't surf or didn't own a car, you could still dream about it and dress like you did.
Joining founding Beach Boy Mike Love is longtime collaborator Bruce Johnston. He replaced cousin Brian Wilson on the tour circuit back in 1965. Johnston quickly became an integral part of the band and brought his own sound and influence to the group. He co-wrote and sang on tracks heard on albums like "Sunflower," "Surf's Up," "L.A. (Light Album), " and more.
Since the deaths of founding Beach Boys Carl Wilson and Dennis Wilson, Love and Johnston have kept the summer alive with a talented group of musicians. They include Jeff Foskett (Brian Wilson Band), Scott Totten, John Cowsill (The Cowsills, Jan and Dean), Tim Bonhomme, Brian Eichenberger, and Randy Leago. Each of these guys do a great job picking up where the late Wilson brothers, Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, and David Marks left off.
You won't want to miss seeing the godfathers of surf pop when they bring their "Wild Honey" Tour to the Majestic Theatre on October 10th. The fun starts at 7:30 PM. Tickets for the show range in price from $39.75 to 89.75 and are on sale now here.
