After their stilted Sunday night performance at the Grammys, the reunited Beach Boys -- Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks -- announced their intention to tour on the occasion of their 50th anniversary.
This morning the first regional dates for that tour come through: the old guys will be at the Chicago Theatre on May 21 and at Milwaukee's annual Summerfest on July 1.
The regrouped surf-rockers plan to release a new album this year, as well as a series of reissues.
The tour also includes a headlining date at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and a slot at Bonnaroo.
