Beach BoysThe Beach Boys have clocked up an incredible legacy with shows every year since they began in 1961.
Unlike every other band of their era, The Beach Boys are the only act to perform continuously every single year for over 50 years.
While there were only three gigs that first year the group performed 73 shows in 1962 and 125 in 1963. Things did slow down slightly in the mid 70s. In 1977 they played just 51 shows. For 2015 they are just about to pass the 100 shows mark for this year.
2015 has been a benchmark year for The Beach Boys with Bruce Johnston clocking up his 50th anniversary with the band.
The current Beach Boys show features 42 songs.
