Mike Love: Beach Boys ready to head out on tour

The Beach Boys are back together again at the Grammy Awards for their first live performance in more than 20 years, and Mike Love told CNN that they're going to keep the good vibes going with a tour.

"It’s our 50th anniversary. Our first performance was New Year's Eve, 1961, [and] our first album came out in 1962 on Capitol Records," Love recalled. "They were kind enough to offer us a new deal, so we’re working on a new album and we’re going on tour together. Fifty years is a remarkable milestone."

The Beach Boys will be joined during their Grammys set by Foster the People, who will perform "Wouldn't it Be Nice," and Maroon 5, who will take on "Surfer Girl."

"It’s remarkable to see Foster the People and Maroon 5 doing our songs, and saying, 'I was singing this song in the car when I was five,'" Love said. "It’s fantastic. And then we do 'Good Vibrations.' [The performance], it’ll be fun, fun, fun."

    I saw the Beach Boys 2 years before Dennis Wilson died and again after he and Carl Wilson died. Brian Wilson wasnt on tour that year either and they dont have the same sound without the Wilsons. Mike Love should let the band bow out before they implode!

      Soon enough, you'll be the one about whom such jokes are made. I used to laugh about K-tel collections until my music starting showing up on them. Age claims us all.
