There are currently no plans for Jardine to perform at the shows in Los Angeles on November 1 and London on November 12.


Jardine has not performed with Wilson in decades, and his been touring with his own version of The Beach Boys, using names such as Beach Boys Family & Friends.

Wilson has spend most of this decade touring with ‘Pet Sounds’ as the centrepiece of his set, though he recent took the newly-completed ‘Smile’ on the road.

The London show, at the Adelphi Theatre, is billed as the last time Wilson will ever perform ‘Pet Sounds’ in full in the UK.
