With Aerosmith set to wrap up its South American tour and set to hop the Atlantic to perform eleven shows for European fans, Boston’s Bad Boys have announced more details of their upcoming U.S. tour which will begin on July 23rd in Oakland, CA.
Aerosmith and their crew sound like they are ramped up and looking forward to bringing their Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock tour home. Boston’s famed baseball stadium, Fenway Park, is set for a mid-August show, and tickets sold out in a record 23 minutes after going on sale. Fellow Boston rockers J. Geils will join Aerosmith for the Fenway show.
Sammy Hagar and The Wabos will be opening eleven of the sixteen shows scheduled with announcements to follow to announce opening acts for the remaining dates.
Frontman Steven Tyler is setting expectations high for fans planning to take in an Aerosmith show this summer.
Tyler is quoted as saying: “I thought it was time to get my MOJO back, by rockin South America and Europe with a little HOME RUN at Boston’s Fenway Park thrown in and then off to the rest of America to do what we do best! We’re gonna rock you into the middle of next week!”
According to drummer Joey Kramer, “The band’s tighter than ever, America we’re coming to rock your World”
It appears as if all this activity is keeping Steven Tyler from devoting time to working on his Autobiography. According to the Boston Herald, the release date has been pushed out to November. The book, with the clever title, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? will be published by HarperCollins, which inked the $2 million deal with Tyler during 2008.
