Rock fans, get ready to say goodbye to one of the most legendary bands in music history. After more than 50 years of non-stop rocking, Aerosmith has announced their farewell tour, named “Peace Out.”
The band, comprised of frontman Steven Tyler, bassist Tom Hamilton, drummer Brad Whitford, and guitarist Joe Perry, will be hitting the road for a 40-stop tour across the United States and Canada. The tour is set to kick off on September 2nd in Philadelphia and conclude on January 26th in Montreal.
According to Perry, the band has learned a lot from their recent Las Vegas residency shows, and they’re excited to bring that knowledge and energy to this final tour. “It’s kind of a chance to celebrate the 50 years we’ve been out here,” he said. “You never know how much longer everybody’s going to be healthy to do this. … It’s been a while since we’ve actually done a real tour. We did that run in Vegas, which was great. It was fun, but (we’re) kind of anxious to get back on the road.”
While the band is looking forward to playing all their classics, including “Crazy,” “Janie’s Got a Gun,” and “Livin’ on the Edge,” Perry also hinted that there could be some surprises in store for fans.
Over the years, Aerosmith has broken boundaries with their music, including a groundbreaking collaboration with Run-DMC on “Walk This Way.” The band has also won four Grammys and even performed at the Super Bowl halftime show in 2001.
While the farewell tour marks the end of an era for Aerosmith, Perry admits that it might not be the last time we see them on stage. “It’s the final farewell tour, but I have a feeling it will go on for a while,” he said. “But I don’t know how many times we’ll be coming back to the same cities. It could very possibly be the last time.”
As the band embarks on their final tour, fans can expect an unforgettable experience that celebrates the legacy of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
