Aerosmith will return to the stage this summer for the first time in over two years.
The band will continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a series of shows at Dolby Live in Las Vegas beginning June 17 and ending December 11.
Aerosmith’s last live performance, also in Las Vegas, was in February 2020, about a month before the coronavirus pandemic shuttered venues and canceled tours. The group was originally scheduled to appear in Europe in June and July, but canceled the dates due to COVID-19 concerns.
The shows for the band’s final Las Vegas residency in 2019 featured a specially designed stage and lighting, as well as a short documentary film.
In 2016, singer Steven Tyler told rolling stone that he anticipated that Aerosmith’s touring days would soon end. “Look, there’s two bands that still have the original members, us and the Stones,” he said. “I’m grateful for that. Whether we do a farewell tour or we go into the studio and make another record, I’m just excited about it.”
Tyler recently noted that the group is still going strong. “Every time we play together, I can’t believe how much Brad [Whitford] east and joe [Perry]and I’m not saying that just because I’m old now and been in this band for 50 years,” Tyler said in an interview with my rock planet in September. “When I listen to my in-ear mix at night, and I look at the audience and they’re still 20 years old, but they still love rock! I mean, they love rock. It’s crazy Joe Perry has never played better.
“I still can’t believe I’m in this band, I love it,” Tyler added. “We don’t tone it down. We play in the same keys, the same two-hour show. And we still do.”
