Out now is the book that Beach Boys fans have waited decades for — Ian Rusten and Jon Stebbins‘ massive 407-page tome, The Beach Boys In Concert: The Ultimate History Of America’s Band On Tour And Onstage. The book features in-depth listing and descriptions of countless Beach Boys concerts between 1961 and their ill-fated blockbuster 2012 reunion tour featuring surviving co-founders Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, David Marks, and longtime member, Bruce Johnston. Over a decade in the making, the book features numerous concerts including first-hand accounts and reviews of the shows by local press outlets. Rusten and Stebbins have focused most of their attention on the shows played up through 1985, when the band unofficially ceased to be a full-time, ongoing recording outfit.
