The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour dates in North America have stunned audiences and had rave reviews. The band, who performed together at the 2012 GRAMMY Awards, have released their new studio album, 'That 's Why God Made The Radio', on EMI. This album hit a record number 3 on the Billboard chart, marking their highest chart position since 1974, and their highest charting studio album since 1965 ! It is the first to feature all of the band's surviving original members in decades and is produced by Brian Wilson and executive produced by Mike Love.
The Beach Boys and EMI have also teamed up for a 50th Anniversary campaign spotlighting the band's entire catalogue, with several new commemorative releases planned for 2012, including a new hits collection and a career-spanning box set.
For five decades, America's first pop band to reach the 50 year milestone has recorded and performed the music that has become the world's favorite soundtrack to summer. The Beach Boys continue to hold Billboard / Nielsen SoundScan's record as the top-selling American band for albums and singles, and they are also the American group with the most Billboard Top 40 chart hits with 36. Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys is fast approaching triple-Platinum sales status, and The SMiLE Sessions, released to worldwide critical acclaim in November, has been heralded as 2011's #1 Reissue of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine.
Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are an American institution that is iconic around the world.
