Aerosmith Gearing Up For Return To The Stage

0 24

Steven Tyler must be feeling better these days. There are reports that Aerosmith plans to forge ahead and head out to Hawaii next month to fulfill obligations that they agreed to in order to settle a lawsuit brought against them by angry fans who decided to band together and take action against the group after they cancelled a show on Maui during the fall of 2008.

The group is scheduled to perform two shows in Hawaii, one on Sunday, October 18 at the Blaisdell Arena and the other on Tuesday, October 20, at the Maui War Memorial Stadium. Tickets for both shows are set to go on sale Saturday and range in price from $65 to $195.

As for the 8,000 or so fans that filed the appropriate paperwork to be a part of the lawsuit, they can expect to receive tickets in the mail in the near future, according to attorney Brandee Faria, who was representing fans who were upset about losing money that was spent on things such as hotel and travel reservations that were made in order to attend the show.

The suit had been scheduled to go to trial in May, but the group decided to avoid a trial and settled with fans by offering them the two aforementioned shows.

There’s been a bit of friction between Tyler and the rest of the group if Joe Perry’s alleged comments were any indication, but it appears that relationships may be on the mend in addition to Tyler’s injuries. Whether or not the group’s return to the stage in Hawaii will pave the way for plans to make up the dates that have been missed over the past couple of months remains to be seen.

As I’ve noted before, Joe Perry has not been sitting around playing cards and watching TV during the past few months. Perry has kept himself busy with various activities, including doing interviews, pitching in as part of a a beach cleanup in Sarasota after a show was cancelled in Florida and working with his solo group.

Perry’s new album, Have Guitar, Will Travel, will hit store shelves on October 6. The video below shows Perry and his group, The Joe Perry Project at a recent performance in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
