Believe it or not: Aerosmith tours this summer!


Our hats are off to any Aerosmith fans still out there. This year hasn’t been easy. Between the whole replacement hoopla brought forth by Joe Perry and the priceless guerrilla performances by Steven Tyler (We still love the Home Depot bit!), it’s safe to say that it’s been one hell of a year for the “Bad Boys from Boston.”

However, they’ve put all that drama behind them (we hope) and now they’re ready to party, at least that’s what their forthcoming tour suggests. Billed as “Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock”, Aerosmith plans to stretch its sleepy legs over every major US market, promising one loaded summer fiesta. We’re going to ignore the state fair appearances, but with mostly amphitheaters booked, fans can look forward to one hell of a summer night. Did we mention they’re bringing Sammy Hagar along for the ride? Someone bring the mixers, we’ve got the tequila covered.

Be sure to pick up your tickets fast. As the band’s official site reports, “The recently announced hometown Fenway Park date scheduled for August 14th sold out in a record breaking 23 minutes.” Not saying that will happen here in Chicago, but we’re betting it’ll still be a hot ticket.

Speaking of which, tickets are available starting Saturday, June 5th via
