After all that tabloid drama late last year -- Joe Perry said the band would tour without Steven Tyler (even allegedly auditioned singers), Tyler started singing in hardware stores and went to rehab -- classic rock dinosaurs Aerosmith reunited and swore they'd tour again. Today they announced 18 U.S. concert dates.
It's the (oh brother) "Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock Tour." The band started this tour this spring in South America. Europe is next, then home -- including Aug. 22 at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater in Tinley Park. No opening act for this date yet (in other markets, it's Sammy Hagar & the Wabos). Ticket info coming shortly here.
