We’ve seen a whirlwind of speculation and rumors ever since last summer’s Aerosmith tour with ZZ Top went down the tubes following the mishap that landed Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler in the hospital.
Since then, there has been word of strange behavior on the part of Tyler coming from some of the other members of the group, along with persistent rumors about alcohol or drug abuse that were finally put to rest when Tyler checked himself into rehab for addiction to prescription pain-killers.
Although Tyler’s bizarre behavior may still have tongues wagging after his impromptu Home Depot performance a few weeks ago, and with the threat of lawsuits hanging heavy in the air shortly thereafter, it seems like the Bad Boys From Boston may be making progress, and planning to welcome Tyler back as soon as he is able.
News has emerged that Aerosmith – with Steven Tyler –has been scheduled to perform at “Download 2010.” The event is a musical event in the U.K. that encompasses three days (June 1th through June 13th) at Donington Park in Leicestershire, England.
In addition to Aerosmith, other acts scheduled for the event include AC/DC, Them Crooked Vultures, Billy Idol and other more contemporary rock groups such as Rage Against The Machine and Stone Temple Pilots.
For now, it appears that the drama has ended where Aerosmith is concerned. Naturally anything can happen, but the fact that the boys are scheduled to play together in June is a good sign for fans.
