The Beach Boys frontman, Mike Love says the group will split after this week in the U.K. and three members -- Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks -- have been dropped from the group.

The three did not find out they had been dropped until Love and Bruce Johnston released a public statement. A UK newspaper reports that the 3 were notified by e-mail of the firing.

The official statement read: "The post-50th anniversary configuration will not include Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks. The 50th Reunion Tour was designed to be a set tour with a beginning and an end to mark a special 50-year milestone for the band."

People who had the chance to see the band this summer in Bangor, saw a concert that will not be repeated. Sad.
