Boston hard rock legends Aerosmith have confirmed that their forthcoming tour will be their last. The news comes as the band announce a slew of European dates for summer 2017 that includes a show at Dublin's 3Arena as well as a headlining appearance at this years' Download Festival. The full list of dates on the mammoth run can be viewed below.
Fresh from a run of hugely successful South American shows, Aerosmith will return across the Atlantic with one of the greatest rock shows ever seen and will undoubtedly be the ultimate must see event of 2017 as the band embark upon this, their ‘farewell’ tour, saying “Aero-Vederci Baby!”.
Speaking exclusively to eonmusic earlier this year at Ramblin' Man Fair festival, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton - who was appearing with the reunited Thin Lizzy - said of the forthcoming jaunt; "Who knows how long that will go on? This band still has a lot of shows in ‘em: Aerosmith still has a way to go before we completely finish."
Guitarist Joe Perry says: “It’s been three years since we have been on tour in Europe and I can speak for my brothers that we can’t wait to get over there and take it up a few notches. Last tour in South America we were running on all cylinders and I can see no reason to let up now."
Lead singer Steven Tyler adds; "Aerosmith just got done ripping through South America like true ambassadors of rock. The band is unstoppable right now and in Europe, we're going to keep doing what we do best... Let The Music Do The Talking, Living On The Edge, and living to rock another day."
Aerosmith have just completed a series of sold-out shows in South America, rocking to their die-hard fans in Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru and Mexico. Their return to Europe is highly anticipated by fans and the band alike. As part of the Aero-Vederci Baby tour, they will also be performing at some of the biggest music festivals in the world including Sweden Rock, France’s Hellfest and the legendary Download Festival in Donington, UK.
