The exact date and location of the gig are not yet confirmed, but it's rumoured the gig might be free.
And guitarist Al Jardine has hinted that there might actually be more than one show. Rolling Stone reports that he said, "We're definitely doing at least one show. It's a big deal. I don't know where it will be yet, but it'll probably be free. Golden Gate Park was mentioned, as was the [National] Mall in Washington, D.C and the north shore of Chicago by the beach."
Not wanting to do things lightly, Jardine mentioned that he wanted to see the line-up -- including Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and possibly early Beach Boys guitarist David Marks -- embark on a world tour too.
He added, "I want to see a 100 date anniversary tour. I want to go all around the world, but if this is the way it has to be, then so be it."
"We're going to have to rehearse one hell of a show. My point is, if we're going to rehearse and make this such a wonderful show, we should take it on the road."
Only last month, rumours of a reunion with Wilson were quashed, as previously reported by Spinner, with Love stating plainly that there were no plans for a reconciliation. And indeed, Wilson's manager Jean Sievers seemed surprised by the announcement of a reunion gig, and said, "Brian has a big new album coming out in August ['Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin'] and that's what he's a 100 percent focused on."
