LOS ANGELES (March 26, 2012) – Aerosmith, America’s greatest rock and roll band, will start your summer sizzling and have you dancing around the fires of rock n’ roll again. After blowing away audiences in South America and Japan, the Bad Boys from Boston are back to rock America’s soul, with The Global Warming Tour playing 18 markets beginning on June 16 in Minneapolis, MN.
“The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with yur mothers,” says Steven Tyler.
Joe Perry adds, "Can't wait to bring this band back home. It feels like we've been away too long."
Live Nation is the national tour promoter for Aerosmith’s North American tour. This summer’s hottest ticket will go on sale March 30 and 31 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. The first round of tour dates are below with additional dates for a second leg to be announced shortly. Beginning on Thursday, March 29, fans that visit www.livenation.com/aerosmith and RSVP to the presale will have early access to tickets.
The band celebrated their fortieth anniversary in 2010 and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. This quintessential live act truly defined rock and roll as we know it, bringing their heart-pounding sound and millions of fans to their feet over the past four decades. Never succumbing to the trends and fads in music, Aerosmith blazes their own path and remains as ground-breaking as they were when they first formed in 1970.
Bassist Tom Hamilton says, "After touring Japan and South America last year we're psyched about bringing it all back for the hometown fans. We're going to break out the classics, the hits and maybe even some of the new ones we've been banging out in the studio. Can't wait to get to Minneapolis!"
