The Beach Boys have announced plans to continue touring when their 50th anniversary tour ends, but will do so without founding members of the band.
Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks will no longer tour with the band when they return to America after their London shows later in September 2012. This will leave Mike Love and Bruce Johnston performing alongside Love's son Christian, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten.
"As we move on, Bruce and I look forward to performing live for Beach Boys fans everywhere," says Mike Love in an official statement. "The 50th Reunion Tour was designed to be a set tour with a beginning and an end to mark a special 50-year milestone for the band."
Brian Wilson recently claimed he had no plans to quit touring with the band forever and hinted that he may return for more live shows in the future.
"I want to continue touring with the Beach Boys indefinitely," he told Rolling Stone magazine. "I don't know. I really don't know. I just know I'm going to continue to tour with them."
