LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- The Beach Boys say they will kick off their 50th anniversary concert tour at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival April 27.

This will be the first time in two decades Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks tour together.

The 40-city tour will include a performance at Tennessee's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival June 10 and stops in New York, Chicago and Houston.

The Beach Boys, who performed together at the 2012 Grammy Awards show Sunday, also plan to release a new, as-yet-untitled studio album and commemorative 50th anniversary catalog with Capitol/EMI this year, the record label said.
