Aerosmith Says Farewell Beginning September 2023
Aerosmith is saying “Peace Out” as they prepare for their final tour together. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
Aerosmith is saying “Peace Out” as they prepare for their final tour together. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band began in 1970 and collected four Grammy awards in total. Not to mention they had two theme park attraction rides created in their honor, one in Disney World Floriday and another in Disney World Paris, “Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.” The iconic band intersected rock and hip-hop when creating their epic collaboration with Run-DMC titled “Walk This Way,” (the hook to this track will now be stuck in your head for the rest of the day, you’re welcome).
One more time, Aerosmith will head out on tour internationally and domestically to celebrate their history with each other and their fans.

The band announced the tour on Twitter earlier today revealing that their final tour will be accompanied by The Black Crows.
In an interview with The Associated Press guitarist Joe Perry said “I think it’s about time,” referring to the fact that each founding member of the band is 70 and up. “It’s kind of a chance to celebrate the 50 years we’ve been out here,” Perry said. “You never know how much longer everybody’s going to be healthy to do this. … It’s been a while since we’ve actually done a real tour. We did that run in Vegas, which was great. It was fun, but (we’re) kind of anxious to get back on the road.“
Singer Steven Tyler, bassist Tom Hamilton, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarists Perry, and Ray Tabano formed Aerosmith in 1970. However, before they released their self-titled debut in 1973, Tabano had left the group and was replaced by Brad Whitford. And, for the final go-around, Kramer will be opting out. Instead, John Douglas will take his place.
The band explained, “While Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably made the decision to sit out the currently scheduled touring dates to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”
“Opening Up Pandora’s Box”

Tyler said in a statement to The Associated Press, “We’re opening up Pandora’s Box one last time to present our fans with the Peace Out tour.” “Be there or beware as we bring all the toys out of the attic. Get ready,” he added.
Aerosmith’s farewell tour will begin in September 2023 and end in January 2024.
