Nearly seven months after an unforeseen hiatus, Aerosmith, the legendary rock ensemble, is set to make a triumphant return to the stage this fall with the much-anticipated continuation of their "Peace Out" farewell tour. The announcement, which stirred excitement among fans, came through a heartfelt Instagram post on the band's official account, expressing their eagerness to hit the road once again.

Commencing in Pittsburgh, PA, on September 20, the tour promises an electrifying series of performances, culminating in what is set to be a historic final show in Buffalo, NY, on February 26 of the following year. Joining Aerosmith on this monumental journey will be The Black Crowes, who are slated to open for the rock legends, adding an extra layer of allure to the event.

Tyler's Tour Setback

The need to postpone the original tour dates arose in September 2023, when Steven Tyler, Aerosmith's iconic lead vocalist, sustained a vocal cord injury, a development that was disclosed to fans via a statement on Aerosmith's Facebook page.

The severity of Tyler's condition, which included not only damage to his vocal cords but also a fractured larynx requiring extensive care, led to the decision to pause the tour after only three shows. Tyler, in a personal message to fans, expressed his deep regret over the situation, emphasizing his bond with both Aerosmith and their dedicated followers, as well as his anticipation for a robust return to the stage.

The newly scheduled 40-date North American tour is more than just a series of concerts; it is a grand celebration of Aerosmith's remarkable five-decade journey and a fitting send-off for the band. In a move that ensures fans' investment remains valid, all previously purchased tickets will be honored at the rescheduled events.

Furthermore, those eager to partake in this historic musical voyage can secure their spots when tickets go live on Friday at 10 a.m., according to their local time zones. This announcement not only marks the return of Aerosmith to the live music scene but also highlights their enduring legacy and the profound connection they share with their fans.

As the band prepares to embark on this final chapter, the "Peace Out" tour is set to be a poignant farewell, celebrating half a century of iconic rock music.
