The Beach Boys

When: Fri., Dec. 28 2012

The Beatles insisted "Love is all you need," but Beach Boys fans aren't so sure. Mike Love's stripped-down version of the legendary band, which plays the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com, $60-$75) at 8 tonight, has been causing considerable controversy this year. Following a successful 50th anniversary reunion album and summer tour, Love announced that co-founders Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks would be leaving the tour once it moved on to smaller venues. Wilson, long considered the group's creative genius, publicly protested Love's announcement, saying that it "kind of feels like being fired." While fans have reason for disappointment (Wilson crafted the legendary Pet Sounds, Love was responsible for "Kokomo"), it's still a safe bet that the show will be highly professional and pleasantly nostalgic, but probably not too inspired. — Bill Forman
