Aerosmith Announce ‘Peace Out’ Farewell Tour With Support From The Black Crowes
Aerosmith have just revealed an extensive North American farewell tour that will take the classic hard rock act through the rest of the year and into 2024. They teased it last week. The Black Crowes will support them on the tour. General on-sale begins May 5. Longtime Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer, who's recently been absent from the band, won't be playing.
The announcement comes months after Aerosmith canceled the final dates of their multi-year "Deuces Are Wild" concert residency in Las Vegas due to Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler's health. In a statement at the time, the performer was said to feel "unwell."
Now, the band's getting back on the road…for the last time. See a video trailer below.
In a joint statement, Aerosmith shared, "It's not goodbye, it's PEACE OUT! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives."
They added regarding Kramer, "While Joey remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably made the decision 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 guitarist Joe Perry first mentioned the upcoming tour to Boston Globe in an interview ahead of his April mini-tour with The Joe Perry Project.
"After really not doing much for eight months. … [My wife] Billie and I were just keeping our heads low," the guitarist said. "Now, it's like, 'OK, this is what I do.'"
