Steven Tyler Reveals Aerosmith Farewell Tour on Stern

Share This:

aerosmithWe’ve written a lot about the future of Aerosmith lately, as three prominent members – Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford – all have side projects with new recordings and tours.

And while the classic rock legends have a number of concert dates for September and October, Tyler dropped a proverbial bombshell with his June 21 announcement on The Howard Stern Show that “we’re doing a farewell tour.”

“I love this band. I really do,” said Tyler. “I want to squash every thought that anybody might have about ‘the band’s over,” he said, before adding: “We’re doing a farewell tour – but only because it’s time.”

Stern, incredulous, asks: “You’re doing a farewell tour?” To which Tyler replies: “I think so… next year. For sure.” Stern interrupts him with: “‘Aerosmith farewell’ as in ‘gone for good?” As longtime Stern sidekick Robin Quivers adds: “Nooo…” Tyler replies: “Yeah…”

Stern – one of the best interviewers around – reacts quickly, asking: “Does Joe know that?” And Tyler says: “Hmm hmm.”

Stern: “And that’s it? You’re never gonna tour again?” Before Tyler can answer, Quivers asks: “Well how long are you gonna tour with this ‘farewell tour’?”

“Probably forever,” is Tyler’s clever reply. Listen for yourself…

    Me n my husband want to see Aerosmith in Vegas. Alas we are afraid it is too late. Afraid the fan club sites on the internet are not legit.
