One of America’s favorite rock bands, Aerosmith, just announced US and world tour dates for this summer’s “Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock Tour”, beginning July 23rd in Oakland, California. Frontman Steven Tyler has been in the headlines quite consistently in the past year after an on-stage tumble, speculations of quitting the band and a possible stint at rehab.
Aerosmith just wrapped up the South American leg of their tour, ending with a show in Costa Rica, the largest concert put on in the country’s history. But as much of a blast as the band is having at the equator, they’re most looking forward to their summer homecoming. The band will walk this way August 14th at Fenway Park, a show that sold out in a mere 23 minutes after going on sale. They’ll be joined at this hometown show by The J. Geils Band, Sammy Hagar and the Wabos accompanying them for 11 of the 16 dates (opening band announcements coming soon).
Steven Tyler gave a shout-out to Boston while talking about the tour, saying, “I thought it was time to get my mojo back, by rockin’ South America and Europe with a little home run at Boston’s Fenway Park thrown in and then off to the rest of America to do what we do best!” They will make their way back to New England to wrap up the American tour on September 4th at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. Aerosmith concert tickets are now available!
