Aerosmith, the iconic American rock band, has been teasing fans with a countdown clock on their website and promotional banners popping up at music venues across the U.S. The banners, which read « peace out, » have led many to believe that the band is gearing up for a farewell tour. This announcement follows guitarist Joe Perry’s revelation that the group has planned to tour from September into 2024, marking their first official tour since the Aero-Vederci Baby! Tour in 2017 and 2018.
Despite canceling a string of concert dates during their Deuces Are Wild residency in Las Vegas in 2022, the group returned in September, with shows running through November. However, lead singer Steven Tyler’s battle with substance abuse has been a concern for the band. In May, the band canceled eight shows on the famous Strip, citing Tyler’s relapse following surgery for his foot. Tyler voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery.
In November, the band donated two community emergency vehicles to the Red Cross of Central Florida as the organization worked to provide relief in the aftermath of Hurricanes Ian and Nicole. The two 2023 Chevrolet Silverados would feature Aerosmith’s notable Walk This Way logo, with delivery scheduled for the spring. Perry, who lives in Sarasota, Florida, said in a statement that he and his bandmates were « devastated by the disastrous impact of Hurricane Ian. »
As fans eagerly await the official announcement of Aerosmith’s tour plans, it remains to be seen whether this will be their last hurrah. However, the band’s legacy as one of the greatest rock bands of all time is secure, and their impact on music will continue to be felt for generations to come.
