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.

Tickets for the Chicago Theatre show ($40-$250) go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 20 at The Chicago Theatre box office, via Ticketmaster or by calling (800) 745-3000.

Tickets for the Summerfest show go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 25 via ticketmaster.com and Walmart stores, or by calling (800) 745-3000.
