Aerosmith to perform on The Tonight Show

Aerosmith are scheduled to perform on NBC-TV’s The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, August 16.

The appearance comes one day after the Boston rockers will guest on the same network’s Today Show, where they are expected to make an official announcement regarding a residency in Las Vegas next year.

Guitarist Joe Perry revealed the group’s plans for the series during a recent interview on SiriusXM’s The Beatles Channel.

“We’re going to be doing a residency in Vegas starting next spring,” Perry told Fab Forum host Dennis Elsas. “What we want to do is something that I haven’t seen before… just downsizing our live show, just playing in a smaller place. We want to do something different. We’re in the middle of the production now. What we’re talking about is having an experience that you wouldn’t be able to see on a regular Aerosmith tour.

“I feel like we’ve been out of the wind for a while and it seems like it would be a really cool thing to bring some of the history back, so the production is gonna look like that. But without losing what we are: a hardcore rock and roll band.”

Aerosmith’s most recent studio album is 2012’s “Music From Another Dimension”, which debuted and peaked at No. 5 on the US Billboard 200.
