With Cheap Trick in the opening slot, the Live Nation-promoted tour launches at Minneapolis’ Target Center June 16. Last stop on the announced dates is Washington’s Tacoma Dome Aug. 8. Stops along the way include Cleveland (June 19); Chicago (June 22); Detroit (Auburn Hills) (July 5); Boston (July 17); Atlanta (July 26); Denver (Aug. 1); Oakland (Aug. 4) and Los Angeles (Aug. 6).
Aerosmith will also touch down in Milwaukee for the city’s annual Summerfest July 7.
The tour announcement comes with all the quotes from those lovable rockers you’ve known for 42 years.
“The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with yur mothers,” frontman / “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler said.
“Can’t wait to bring this band back home,” guitarist Joe Perry said. “It feels like we’ve been away too long.”
And one more, this one from bassist Tom Hamilton:
“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!”
