London: Earlier this year, the Beach Boys reunited to celebrate their 50th anniversary with worldwide tour.
But it has now emerged that Brian Wilson, David Marks and Al Jardine are being excluded from the tour following this week’s two sell-out gigs in London, the Daily Express reported.
Announcing the move, Mike Love, who has the legal right to use the Beach Boys name, said: “You’ve got to be careful not to get overexposed. The Eagles found out the hard way when they went out for a second year and wound up selling tickets for just five dollars.”
The decision left band members confused with Wilson saying: “I can’t understand why.”
The band has played more than 70 gigs this year and released its first album in more than two decades.
