Following the untimely passing of Carl Wilson in 1998, the surviving members of The Beach Boys split up into the different tours listed below. The Beach Boys reunited in 2012 for a major worldwide 50th Anniversary Celebration tour, which ended on September 28, 2012. If any new reunion tours occur, they will be listed first. All other tours are listed by the individual BBs (Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, Alan Jardine, David Marks) heading and/or taking part in them.
In addition, Mike Love has licensed the Beach Boys' name for his tour with Bruce Johnston, so there may be some confusion. We'll endeavor to keep these dates sorted from reunion dates as best we can. Former BB Blondie Chaplin sometimes tours as part of the Rolling Stones' band and fellow ex-BB Ricky Fataar currently tours as Bonnie Raitt's drummer. Dates for the BB's family off-shoot band, California Saga, are also being listed here.
All tour dates are subject to change. An asterisk (*) indicates a date confirmed by BRI, two asterisks (**) indicate a confirmed date from another source. BBFC does not list private show dates. For a comprehensive listing of songs performed in The Beach Boys' and their spinoff acts' past shows (1962 through present day), visit Eric Anniversario's setlist archive.

Wilson (Dennis Wilson's son), and Matt and Adam Jardine (Alan Jardine's sons). Billy Hinsche (Justyn's uncle) and Rob Bonfiglio (Carnie's husband) head up the supporting band. One of California Saga's focuses will be on the lesser-heard songs in the BB's canon. (Carnie, Wendy, Matt, and Rob also tour with Wilson Phillips.)
