American rock legends Aerosmith have announced their farewell tour, entitled ‘Peace Out’.
After more than 50 years, countless hits and thousands upon thousands of satisfied fans, Aerosmith are calling it a day with their ‘Peace Out’ farewell tour.
“It’s not goodbye it’s PEACE OUT!” the band said in a statement.
“Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.”
The four-time GRAMMY® award-winning, diamond-certified and Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame rockers encourage audiences to “go crazy one last time” as they roll out their catalogue of rocking hits.
Aerosmith formed in 1970 and maintain a proud reputation as one of America’s greatest rock acts. They were America’s answer to the influential success of megalithic British heavy rock acts like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest.
The line-up for the ‘Peace Out’ tour features original frontman Steven Tyler, lead guitarist Joe Perry, guitarist Brad Whitford and bassist Tom Hamilton.
Founding drummer Joey Kramer will not be joining the tour as he focuses on his healthy, family and well being.
“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,” the band said in a statement.
“Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”
There’s little doubt Aerosmith are one of the world’s defining rock acts. They have forged a legacy that began with their self-titled debut album in 1973.
It continues to this day in the retention of classic songs ‘Dream On’, ‘Walk This Way’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing’.
The band have secured a swelling, inter-generational legion of fans with their profound musicality and astute commitment to live performance.
Australian dates are yet to be announced for the ‘Peace Out’ tour.
‘Become What You Are’, the new album from The Daisycutters is available now via MADCAP Global Music, JB Hi-Fi and independent music retailers.
