According to a press release, "As The Beach Boys mark more than a half century of making music, the group continues to ride the crest of a wave unequalled in America's musical history.
"The Beach Boys have become synonymous with the California lifestyle and have become an American icon to a worldwide audience. Since lead-singer and rock's quintessential front man Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys' first hit, 'Surfin' (1961), the band has had a string of chart-topping songs and albums that spans the career and includes eternal anthems of American youth: 'Surfin' USA,' 'Surfer Girl,' 'Fun, Fun, Fun,' 'I Get Around,' 'California Girls,' 'Help Me Rhonda,' 'Barbara Ann,' 'Good Vibrations,' 'Wouldn't It Be Nice,' 'Rock and Roll Music' and 'Kokomo.'"
Organizers note that the Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.
The Beach Boys have sold more than 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history. On July 4, 1985, The Beach Boys played to an afternoon crowd of one million in Philadelphia and the same evening they performed for more than 750,000 people on the Mall in Washington. The day's historical achievement was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. The band was honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards, receiving The Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy.
