Aerosmith, America’s greatest rock and roll band, will start your summer sizzling and have you dancing around the fires of rock n’ roll again. After blowing away audiences in South America and Japan, the Bad Boys from Boston are back to rock America’s soul, with The Global Warming Tour.
“The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with yur mothers,” says Steven Tyler.
Aerosmith are a living piece of American music history, having sold over 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYs, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards among many other honors. Proving that they can cross genre-boundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC’s “Walk This Way.” With scores of multi-platinum albums, Aerosmith continues to inspire generations to get their wings, get a grip and just push play. It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time.
American rock band and musical institution Cheap Trick will open the announced shows.
Summerfest 2012 will take place June 27 – July 1 and July 3 – 8, from Noon until Midnight and will be closed Monday, July 2.
