Aerosmith announce North American tour
Legendary rockers Aerosmith have announced dates for a North American summer tour.
The 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' hitmakers - who had to call off their tour last summer when frontman Steve Tyler landed in hospital after falling off stage - are set to begin their 'Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock' showcase in Oakland, California on July 23, following dates in Europe.
Tyler said: "I thought it was time to get my mojo back, by rocking South America and Europe with a little home run at Boston's Fenway Park thrown in and then off to the rest of America to do what we do best!
"We're gonna rock you into the middle of next week."
Aerosmith's summer 2009 tour resulted in an array of injuries for the rockers - Steve Tyler broke his shoulder and severely pulled a leg muscle when he fell off the stage in South Dakota, while Tom Hamilton underwent surgery and Brad Whitford missed various dates due to a head injury.
In December 2009, it was reported Tyler - who is the father of Hollywood actress Liv Tyler - had quit the band altogether.
Guitarist Joe Perry explained: "Steven quit as far as I can tell. He has had no contact with me or the other band members. He's notorious for that, that's one thing I've learned to live with. I try to overlook it
"Obviously he hasn't been giving 100 per cent to this thing for a long time. He's obviously had this planned for a long time. To disregard his brothers to the point where we have to find out about it on the internet. I still care for him as a person, or at least the person I used to know. But things change."
The summer tour will take in Fort Lauderdale, Boston, Toronto, New York and Detroit - among other cities - before finishing in Uncasville on September 4.Posted on 2 Jun 2010 10:00 to category : Music News
