Aerosmith To Tour With Sammy Hagar
by Paul Cashmere - June 2 2010
Aerosmith will head back out across the USA in July and take Sammy Hagar along for part of the ride.
After a touch and go existence earlier this year when Steven Tyler announced he had quit the band, only to return in less time than it takes to say “spinal tap”, Aerosmith are preparing to take on a series run across North America.
"I thought it was time to get my mojo back, by rockin South America and Europe with a little home run at Boston's Fenway Park thrown in and then off to the rest of America to do what we do best! We're gonna rock you into the middle of next week," Tyler said in a statement.
Everyone in the band appears to be cranked up over the tour. “This is a perfect time for us to tour North America as we are just completing a very successful tour of South America. We are looking forward to our European tour next month and then bringing our show back to our home soil. We are running on all cylinders and are "Cocked Locked and ready to Rock!" commented Joe Perry.
"We're having a blast tearing up South America. I can't stop thinking about how great it's going to feel bringing it home this summer," said Tom Hamilton.
"The band's tighter than ever, America we're coming to rock your World," said Joey Kramer.
Sammy Hagar and the Wabos will open for 11 of the 16 shows.

(On again off again...well looks like Aerosmith will indeed rock us! Hopefully the tour will get on with no side issues. Whatever happen to Tyler wanting to market himself, guess he finally sees that he is only good with the rest of his mates in Aerosmith.)
