Steven Tyler Lincoln Center 2016 BenefitSteven Tyler has announced an intimate concert performance, “Steven Tyler… Out on a Limb” at NYC’s Lincoln Center on May 2. Film director Brett Ratner and the classic rock legend are collaborating on a unique experience to benefit Janie’s Fund, Tyler’s charitable initiative to help girls overcome the trauma of abuse and neglect. Named after the Aerosmith hit “Janie’s Got A Gun,” Janie’s Fund is a collaboration between Tyler and the non-profit organization Youth Villages established to help girls overcome the trauma of abuse and neglect.

“Steven Tyler… Out on a Limb” will showcase in-depth stories and insights on stage from recounts of his piano upbringing to trials and tribulations of life with Aerosmith. Backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary, Tyler will take the audience on a time-traveling journey from his musical ancestors in Calabria, Italy all the way to Route 440 and Nashville’s country music.

“I’m digging deep and finding some real buried treasure for this one. I’ve never performed quite like this before,” says Tyler. “I’m telling it like it is and getting to perform with some extremely talented musicians and dear friends from Nashville. For this show, we’re taking it up close and personal and truly going… out on a limb.”

The event will also feature a silent auction with once in a lifetime experiences and memorabilia, from a five-day stay at Tyler’s Hawaiian home to an autographed one-of-a-kind painting of Tyler and Aerosmith bandmate Joe Perry by artist Brian Fox; the Skittles® mic stand from the set of Tyler’s Super Bowl commercial; exclusive signed images taken by photographer Sarah Skinner; pieces from Tyler’s personal wardrobe; and an opportunity to attend the Emmy® Awards in Los Angeles along with a complimentary gifting suite prize package. Tickets for the event at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall go on-sale this Friday, April 8 at 10 am at Ticketmaster.

Tyler’s upcoming solo album is scheduled for release later this summer on Big Machine Label Group’s Dot Records. His current single, “Red, White & You” is available now.

It’s expected that Tyler will be announcing a full tour to support his solo album. So far, only one date – a performance at the Iowa State Fair on August 20 – has been posted.

Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide and he has won four Grammy® Awards, six American Music Awards and an Emmy® Award. In addition to having nine #1 hits, Aerosmith has received 25 Gold, 18 Platinum and 12 multi-Platinum album certifications.
