Aerosmith have announced their ‘farewell’ European tour.
The Boston-originated rock band last released an album, ‘Music From Another Dimension!’, in 2012, but have been a regular touring outfit during the past few years – the five-piece recently wrapped a tour of South America.
However, it appears that chances are running out for fans to see the band live, as Aerosmith announced back in June that they were splitting up after 46 years together – despite Joe Perry subsequently contradicting singer Steve Tyler’s claims that they were calling it a day.
The forthcoming European jaunt, described as the band saying ‘Aero-Vederci Baby!‘ to their fans on this side of the pond, promises to deliver “one of the greatest rock shows ever seen.” While the only UK date announced so far remains their headline slot at next year’s Download Festival, the band will now play shows in the likes of Germany, France and Georgia during their newly-announced tour.
Tyler and Perry have also appeared in a promotional video for the new tour. At one point, Tyler asks Perry if there’s “any truth to the rumours that this could be the last hurrah?” for Aerosmith, to which Perry replies: “Who the hell knows?” Watch the video below.
