During a live call-in interview on “The Howard Stern Show” on SiriusXM satellite radio earlier today (Tuesday, June 21), AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler revealed that the band will embark on a farewell tour in 2017. Tyler, who will release his first-ever solo album, “We’re All Somebody From Somewhere”, on July 15, added the caveat that the tour will probably last “forever.”
While on hiatus, the members of AEROSMITH have been keeping busy with solo projects — guitarist Joe Perry recently hit the road with his star-studded side project HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, featuring Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, former GUNS N’ ROSES drummer Matt Sorum, and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bassist Robert DeLeo. AEROSMITH guitarist Brad Whitford has joined forces once again with Derek St. Holmes for a 19-date spring and summer run.
Perry said that although AEROSMITH splitting isn’t something he’s looking forward to, he feels that the band is nearing the end. “It’s getting to be about that time, but I’m really looking forward to the VAMPIRES thing,” he said. “And I know Brad‘s doing stuff with Derek and they’re buddies from way back. Everybody’s got stuff that they’re doing, so it’s kind of up the middle. It’s inevitable that once we get back together I’ll be ready to play ‘Dream On’ again.”
