Beach Boys to play Hard Rock Tampa in July

TBO.com staffThe Beach Boys are bringing their sunny sounds to Tampa for a summer show at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The current incarnation of the seminal surf-rock band will play the casino’s Hard Rock Café on July 18, as part of the Hard Rock Heatwave summer events promotion. The concert will feature founding member Mike Love performing with longtime keyboard player Bruce Johnston and a group of supporting musicians, including Love’s son Christian Love on guitar. The concert won’t feature founding members Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks, who reunited with Mike Love in 2012 for the album “That’s Why God Made the Radio” and a successful 50th anniversary tour.
Tickets for the 21-and-up concert go on sale June 7 for $69 and will be available through Ticketmaster outlets, the Hard Rock Store inside the casino at 5223 Orient Rd, or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Active since 1961, the Beach Boys have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, and recorded hits that include “Surfin’ USA,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations” and “Kokomo.”
