Brian Wilson announces live dates with exiled members of The Beach Boys
Brian Wilson has announced details of two live shows he will play with Al Jardine and David Marks of The Beach Boys.

The announcement of the live date comes after the group fell out with fellow members Mike Love and Bruce Johnston in 2012 when the pair revealed plans to continue playing live under The Beach Boys name, with or without Wilson, Jardine and Marks. The three-piece band have announced shows in Kettering, Ohio and a festival in Illinois this July.

Mike Love revealed his plan to continue playing under The Beach Boys name last year following the completion of the band's hugely successful 50th anniversary tour. In October, Love defended his plans in an open letter published by the LA Times. He wrote: "I did not fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I cannot fire Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson."

Wilson then responded with a letter in the same publication, writing: "By Mike not wanting or letting Al, David and me tour with the band, it sort of feels like we're being fired."

Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks will play:

Fraze Pavilion, Kettering, Ohio (July 25)
Ravina Festival, Highland Park, Illinois (26)
