Aerosmith Announce European Tour
Starting with a show in Moscow on May 24, the band will make their way through Northern Europe for the next month before finishing off with a show in Milan, Italy on June 25. For now, nine dates have been announced, but looking at the tour schedule there are several almost week-long gaps, so the addition of more shows is likely. Aerosmith will visit the Swedish capital Stockholm for the first time since 1999, having only played a couple of festival gigs in the country since then.
The tour also includes a stop at the Download Festival in Derby, UK on June 15. Aerosmith released their 15th studio album Music From Another Dimension! last year, but expect the setlist to focus around the band’s older material from the seventies, and hit albums like Pump and Permanent Vacation.
In related news Rolling Stone magazine report that Rick Rubin might be producing Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler’s solo album. Said Tyler to the magazine over the weekend: “I just got back from Russia. Tour was over last week, so I set up my studio, and I had dinner with Rick Rubin last night.” Rubin was instrumental in getting Aerosmith’s career back on track when he got Tyler and Joe Perry involved in Run-D.M.C.’s cover of “Walk This Way” in 1986.
