We knew this was coming, but now, as the Beach Boy‘s reunion tour comes to its scheduled end in the UK, it’s official:

The reunion of founding members of the Beach Boys will not continue beyond this week, according to the band’s frontman Mike Love.

Brian Wilson and Al Jardine – both founding members of the legendary Californian pop group – have been told their involvement in the band’s touring commitments will cease after this week.

David Marks, who originally joined the band as a replacement for Jardine in 1962, is also to be relieved of his touring duties.

Singer Mike Love, who owns the rights the band’s name following a series of legal battles, released a statement which said:

“The post-50th anniversary configuration will not include Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks. The 50th Reunion Tour was designed to be a set tour with a beginning and an end to mark a special 50-year milestone for the band.” -[Telegraph]

The end of the 50th Reunion Tour happens this week in the UK with Wilson, Marks and Al Jardine in tow. The remaining dates are 9/27 at Royal Albert Hall and 9/28 at Wembley Arena.

They recently toured the US and played Jones Beach, PNC Bank Arts Center, Bonnaroo, and Beacon Theater twice. They also released a new LP  together.
