After 50 years of music, four-time Grammy award-winning and diamond-certified rock band Aerosmith has announced their farewell tour, Peace Out, with special guest The Black Crowes.
The monumental 40-date North American tour will kick off in Philadelphia on September 2. It will make its way to iconic arenas across the US and Canada, including a stop at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise on Friday, October 20.
The tour will also offer various VIP packages and experiences for fans to take their concert experience to the next level. Packages vary but include a premium reserved ticket, a personal photo opportunity with band members, limited edition merchandise, and more. Tickets for the general on-sale begin on Friday, May 5 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.com.
In a joint statement, Aerosmith shared, “It’s not goodbye it’s Peace Out! Get ready and walk this way; you’ll get the best show of our lives.”
However, the band also shared news of Joey Kramer’s absence from this touring run, stating that “Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably decided 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.”
Aerosmith is celebrating their 50th anniversary as one of the most significant American rock bands in history, having sold over 150 million albums around the world, produced genre-defining music videos such as “Amazing,” “Crazy,” “Janie’s Got A Gun,” “Livin’ On The Edge,” and “Love In An Elevator,” and launched grand record-shattering global tours.
They broke numerous boundaries, including becoming the first rock band with a massive commercially successful hip-hop collaboration with Run DMC on “Walk This Way” and the first hard rock band to appear during a Super Bowl Halftime Show with their 2001 performance.
The Black Crowes will be joining Aerosmith as special guests. The Atlanta-based band gave the rock genre a much-needed kick in the ’90s with their hit album, “Shake Your Money Maker,” and have since released eight studio and four live albums, selling in the tens of millions along the way.
They have sold out shows worldwide, had legendary guitarist Jimmy Page join as a member, and fought amongst themselves and against the rest of the world, making them a legendary rock group.
Aerosmith wrapped up their critically acclaimed Las Vegas residency, Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild, at Dolby Live at Park MGM. The electrifying 90-minute live performance took fans deep diving into Aerosmith’s groundbreaking career with exclusive, unreleased audio and never-before-seen visuals from the band’s archives produced by Oscar and Emmy-winning global visual effects studio Pixomondo.
Before that, they returned to their hometown in Boston to perform a record-breaking one-off show at Fenway Park as part of their 50th-anniversary celebrations. With over 38,700 people in attendance, it was the most tickets sold for a show at the iconic venue.
