Aerosmith will launch the the ‘Peace Out’ farewell tour performing across North America. Aerosmith said in a statement on social media: “It’s not goodbye it’s PEACE OUT! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.” Aerosmith announced the tour with a video in a “breaking news” format. The clip featured Eminem, Slash, Dolly Parton, Kelly Clarkson, Ringo Starr and other celebrities reacting to news of the band’s farewell.
The band told the Associated Press that original and longtime drummer Joey Kramer will not take part in the current dates on the upcoming tour and will continue to “focus his attention on his family and health” since their Las Vegas residency last year. Drummer John Douglas will play in his place.
The group’s 40-date run of show will begin Sept. 2, 2023, in Philadelphia and end in Montreal on Jan. 26, 2024. The band will play its hometown of Boston this New Year’s Eve, and perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Jan. 19. The Black Crowes will join the tour as a special guest.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 5 at 10 a.m. local time. For tickets, VIP upgrades and move visit the band’s website.
