Aerosmith Postpones “Farewell Tour” To Record New Studio Album
Just when you thought these guys were ready to call it quits…they announce some big news! Aerosmith have postponed plans for a 2017 American tour to head back into the studio to work on a new record.
Flashback about five months, Aerosmith began pumping their “Aero-Vederci Baby!” tour, which many speculated to be the band’s farewell tour. Today, Joe Perry announced that Aerosmith is pushing aside the tour to start work on a new album.
“We postponed the American tour we were supposed to do this fall and we’re gonna go out and tour until we’re done. We’re gonna try and hit every place we’ve ever played and never played. There’s always new places to go. New countries. I’d like to play China and the Far East. There’s a lot of places that are off the beaten path. Is this the last tour? Well, I don’t know. I don’t think so. To picture a final Aerosmith gig, it’s like … I can’t do it. There’s too much of that ‘rock until you drop’ ingrained into this band. But like I said, we’re at the end, so who knows how long it’s gonna go?”
Aerosmith are set to rock a few European dates starting in May that will keep them on the road until early July.
