The Beach Boys’ Endless Summer Gold Tour will kick off just ahead of the debut of their official book The Beach Boys by The Beach Boys, slated for release on April 2, 2024 via Genesis Publications. Published in a limited edition of only 500 copies worldwide, the book captures the group’s astounding rise from Hawthorne garage band to internationally renowned act, covering the release of their first single, ‘Surfin”, up to their 1980 Independence Day concert at the National Mall in Washington D.C., for an audience of over half a million people. Told through the music of Brian Wilson with chief lyricis, Mike Love, along with Al Jardine, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson, David Marks and Bruce Johnston, The Beach Boys by The Beach Boys is accompanied by rare and iconic photographs and historical ephemera resulting in an extraordinary autobiography from America’s biggest band.
The forthcoming tour and book comes on the heels of a series of significant milestones for the band including the CBS tribute special “A Grammy Salute to the Beach Boys,” which further cemented their legacy in the music industry. The special, which aired last spring, featured performances from artists such as Beck, Brandi Carlile, Michael McDonald, Pentatonix, St. Vincent, Weezer, Norah Jones, John Legend, and Mumford & Sons, among others. The special underscored the enduring appeal and influence of The Beach Boys’ music, from their early surf rock anthems to their complex harmonies and sophisticated arrangements.
