Aerosmith Announces 2022 Las Vegas Residency
For the first time in more than two years, Aerosmith has announced to get back on the road for a summer tour.
In celebration of their 50th anniversary, the band will continue to run shows at Dolby Live in Las Vegas that kicks off June 17 and closes on December 11.
A month before the pandemic created a downtime for live concerts in 2020, Aerosmith took their last live performance in Las Vegas as well. The band was initially scheduled to perform in Europe this June and July, but canceled the dates amid COVID-19 concerns.
In 2016, Steven Tyler told Rolling Stone that he anticipated Aerosmith’s touring days are coming to an end soon saying:
“Look, there’s two bands that still have the original members, us and the Stones.
“I’m grateful for that. Whether we do a farewell tour or go into the studio and do another record, I’m just excited about it.”
Tyler explained that the band is still in great shape stating:
“Whenever we play together, I can’t believe how good Brad [Whitford] is and Joe [Perry], and I’m not just saying this because I’m old now and I’ve been in this band for 50 years.”
While in September, Tyler said in an interview with My Planet Rock:
“When I listen to my in-ear mix at night, and I look at the audience and they’re still 20-year-olds, but still loving the rock! I mean, they love to rock. It’s insane. Joe Perry’s never played better.
“I still can’t believe that I’m in this band, I love it.
“We don’t tune down. We’re playing in the same keys, same two-hour show. And we’re still doing it.”
