VIDEO: Aerosmith’s Joe Perry interviewed on Peru TV

Aerosmith’s current South American tour is only a few dates in, but already making headlines due to Steven Tyler’s health issues: seemingly suffering through a bout of something, the show’s opening night in Lima, Peru failed to include such concert staples as “I Don't Want To Miss A Thing,” “Dream On” and “Love In An Elevator” from being performed at the show.

Days later, before the tour’s second stop in Asuncion, Paraguay, Tyler passed out in the shower at his hotel due to dehydration caused by gastrointestinal problems (aka “Montezeuma’s Revenege”), resulting in a fall that cost him two teeth, a black eye and a day’s delay in rocking the city, as the concert was postponed 24 hrs due to his injuries.

Following some medical treatment and procedure, Tyler recovered quickly, the Asuncion show went ahead as planned, and the singer was reportedly back in fine shape and kicking ass.

While in Lima for the first gig, the group did some media interviews, including guitar hero Joe Perry sitting down to discuss the band and its projects with the “13 Hrs.” show on Peru’s Canal N.

“We’re about three-quarters done with the [new] record,” said Joe. “Basically, we just have to put the singing on it, and some finishing touches, and we’ll be ready for [a] March [release].”

“A lot of people have said that it sounds like the first and second record,”
continued Perry, “because we worked with Jack Douglas, the producer who did our records in the 70s.“
