Aerosmith 1/28/20

Aerosmith will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a massive hometown stadium show on September 18th at Boston’s Fenway Park. Aerosmith last played the hallowed ball field back on August 14th, 2010 on a double bill with support from fellow Bostonians, the J. Geils Band.

There’s been no word as to whether sidelined drummer Joey Kramer will be on board for the band’s upcoming Las Vegas gigs, or the its upcoming 13-country European trek,

Steven Tyler told us a while ago, that when you’re in a band — or any close relationship — as he’s been with Joe Perry, creativity tends to trump the trouble: [“Y’know, sometimes differences do get in the way, but when we start playing together, it just is the truth of why we were both born and put on this planet. There’s a lot of things that I hate Joe for saying and he hates me for saying, and things we’ve done back and forth, but this band is a band and married forever. So we may have our differences, but the marriage still holds, especially when there’s a stage for us to get up on and rock out on.”] SOUNDCUE (:20 OC: . . . rock out on)
