Aerosmith has rolled out the initial 40 dates to their final trek, which has been dubbed their “Peace Out Tour.” The dates, featuring special guests the Black Crowes, kick off on September 2nd at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center and, as of now, wrap on January 26th at Montreal’s Bell Centre. General on sale begins Friday, May 5th at 10 a.m. local time on

Guitarist Joe Perry told us that he and the rest of the guys in Aerosmith realize that age is a tremendous factor in the professional decisions they make: “You realize you’re not an immortal, and you don’t have this 22-year-old feeling of ‘this thing can go on forever,’ and y’know, ‘I can do whatever I want, I can go for three nights without sleep and everything will be fine.’ You start to realize that it’s a very delicate thing, life is a delicate thing, and being able to perform at the top of your game is a delicate thing. And it’s one of those changes, y’know, that comes over. I’m still amazed that we can put on the kind of show that we put on. Every night could be out last.”

Steven Tyler recently explained how the habit of dangling scarves from his mic stand became a trademark for him: “We played every college in Massachusetts and a lot of clubs — K-K-K-Katies, and we did four 45-minute sets, sweated to. . . Y’know, I was soakin’ wet and I used to wear this shirt and after three months of that, the shirt just turned into rags (laughter), and I would hang it, y’know, as a rights of passage on the mic stand. So, one thing led to another. . .”

Although Steven Tyler has suffered through some troubling times on the road in the recent past, having hit the stage following foot, knee, and throat surgeries. Bassist Tom Hamilton remains amazed at how Tyler is unstoppable when there’s a gig to do: “He took his knee out on stage a few years ago, and he just, he powers through it, he really does sacrifice his body, and so he’s just gotta maybe ease up on that (laughs). I don’t, I don’t ever see him doing it, but I think. . . y’know, he’s actually pretty good at taking care of his throat, so I think he’s just gonna get even more intense about it.”

The band posted in a statement:

It’s not goodbye it’s PEACE OUT! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.

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.
