Brian Wilson Disavows Trump's Beach Boys Benefit in California (EXCLUSIVE)


The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday morning that the Beach Boys would be the main attraction performing for the president and his supporters at the Orange Country campaign event, with tickets ranging from $2,800 per donor to $150,000 a couple for co-chair status.


As hardcore Beach Boys fans know, the group booked for the tony fundraiser is a licensed touring edition led by Love, who has not been shy about appearing with Trump in the past.


At the close of that, Love chose to continue touring with an un-reunited lineup under the Beach Boys’ name, for which he holds a license for concert purposes.


This isn’t the first instance of Wilson and Jardine distancing themselves from a controversial or politically divisive gig booked by Love’s edition of the Beach Boys.


In February, both Wilson and Jardine officially signed on to a Change.org petition urging a boycott of the touring Beach Boys , after Love and company booked a headlining gig at the Safari Club International Convention in Reno, Nevada, where noted safari hunting enthusiast Donald Trump Jr. was the keynote speaker.


Bruce Johnston, who joined the Beach Boys in 1965, has also been performing with Love and is the other veteran of the group’s early days to be part of the current touring lineup.
