Plans for a full-blown Beach Boys reunion tour remain up in the air, but Wilson this summer has actually been more active than the ex-San Francisco Giants righty of the same name. Following his band's exuberant early hits and 1965's immortal Pet Sounds, Wilson lost that happy glow during the drug-abetted sessions of the infamously tabled Smile LP — never to be the same again. Still, the Inglewood native was the guiding force behind such later successes as 1977's Love You, and his not-always-so-pure pop genius was recently reasserted with 2011's expanded edition of those Smile sessions. All the big ones will be here — "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "Good Vibrations, "I Get Around," etc. — but a recent blog post on Wilson's website also promises this tour will include "songs that have rarely, if ever, been performed live." Get psyched, completists. With Beach Boys founding members Al Jardine and David Marks.
