Dubbed “The Global Warming Tour,” the show will hit 18 cities when kicks off June 16 in Minneapolis, MN.
Cheap Trick will open the first series of dates; more shows will be announced shortly.
On Wednesday, Aerosmith set up shop at The Grove in Los Angeles for a press conference hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
“Well, we’ve been underground for four months doing what we do best,” began Steven Tyler, “and we’ve been known to set the world on fire with our type of music, for the last couple of years, to say the least. So, we decided to call this The Global Warming Tour, and come from under the hood, to tell you all that we’ve got a new album and a new tour.”
You can watch the full press conference below.
Tickets go on sale March 30 and 31 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.
