The Beach Boys in 3D?!?!?!?!

Get ready. We may just get Mike Love sweat, Al Jardine wrinkles, Bruce Johnston leg, and Brian Wilson frump all in full 3D!
An odd bit of questionable status that I ran across recently is a mention of the Beach Boys' 50th Anniversary show from last year at the Hollywood Bowl having been shot in 3D.
Apparently, it may still be in the works for release of some sort. Not much is out there, other than the poster above. The poster is odd in that it mentions the 3D presentation, but uses material from the actual show poster. In other words, it makes it seem as though the 3D theater showing will be on June 2, 2012, when that was in fact the date of the show.
In any event, the main point of interest is not so much that it was shot in 3D, or even that it may show in some theaters in 3D. The hope is that this will lead to a normal "2D" Blu-ray/DVD release, which usually accompanies any 3D Blu-ray release. It's billed as potentially being 120 minutes, which means we would at least get a longer concert presentation than last year's "Live in Concert" Blu-ray/DVD.
After the odd disintegration of the other live DVD project from the 50th tour, I'm not assuming anything with this project either. It may have already been shelved for all I know. There is also the possibility that it could be shown in a few theaters and never released on home video. We shall see.
The only info on the production can be found at this website:
There is also mention of the project on the IMDB (Internet Movie Database).
