Brian Wilson is urging fans to boycott a gig by his former band The Beach Boys, over trophy hunting fears.

Wilson and Jardine are on their own separate long-running tour, under Wilson's name as a solo artist, also spotlighting the Beach Boys' material; they're now on the Cayamo music cruise and could not be reached for comment.

A version of the California band, fronted by Mike Love, are to play the Safari Club International Convention in Reno, Nevada on Wednesday. Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric, are longtime trophy-hunting supporters.

"This organisation supports trophy hunting, which both Al and I are emphatically opposed to", he wrote. The open letter section of the entreaty endorsed by Wilson and Jardine reads: "Dear Beach Boys Manager Elliott Lott: We the undersigned pledge to stop buying or downloading all Beach Boys music, going to Beach Boys concerts, and purchasing any Beach Boys merchandise until the Beach Boys withdraw from the SCI Convention and publicly state their opposition to this sick "sport" of killing animals for "fun.' We will call on the Beach Boys" record label, agent and publicists to disown the Beach Boys, and on members of the public to protest at forthcoming Beach Boys concerts, unless they do so". "There's nothing we can do personally to stop the show, so please join us in signing the petition", he added.

The petition, created by Eduardo Goncalves, has almost 60,000 signatures as of press time, with a goal of 75,000.

Love attended the inauguration of Donald Trump as president in 2017.

Love has had the rights to the Beach Boys name since 1998. "I understand there are so many factions and fractious things going on - the chips will fall where they may", Love told Uncut magazine at that time.

Wilson tweeted that he and Al Jardine had nothing to do with the event, where Donald Trump Jr is a speaker. "We've performed at some of his venues at fundraisers and so on".

It begins by paraphrasing a famous line from a song on their seminal 1966 album, Pet Sounds, which pictured the band feeding animals at a zoo on the cover.
