Aerosmith is a rock band that has impacted the lives of so many generations through out their career that it is hard to say goodbye. They have been with us for more than 50 years, we have sung, shouted and cried with them at their concerts, and they are undoubtedly one of the best groups in this genre. Although they are already reaching the end of their career, we will still be able to enjoy their music on the last tour they will carry out as a farewell titled PEACE OUT.
This group had its beginnings in 1970 in Boston with five founders. Throughout their history as a rock band there were disputes and fights between some of the members, so there were some changes they had to make in the guitarists. Nowadays, the band consists of the following members: Steven Tyler on vocals, Tom Hamilton on bass, Joey Kramer on drums, Joe Perry on guitar, and Brad Withford on rhythm guitar.
Their success from the beginning of their career was evident. The international recognition that the group gained led them to travel the world on their 31 tours and to create their extensive discography, which consists of 15 albums and more than 66 million copies sold to their millions of fans around the globe. Although they began their concerts since they released their first official album, it was not until 1975 they published their record Toys in the Attic, which gave them great national and international popularity.
This popularity has also been evident with the inclusion of their songs in many TV shows and movies like Last Action Hero, The Simpsons, Ace Ventura, Armageddon, Charlie's Angels, among many others. Their songs are also well known for their inclusion on the famous Guitar Hero game, where their hits are among the most famous and common to play with. Many of their works have won platinum and gold album recognitions, their songs have come to appear on the Billboard 200 and Billboard hot 100, among many awards and prizes the band has also received Grammys for their work.
The band decided to make this announcement on their social media, in which they said: “PEACE OUT! After 50 years, 10 world tours, and playing for over 100 million fans... It's time for one last go!”. Most of the band's members have 70 plus years, that is why they decided it was time to say farewell. With this, their last tour, the band will be playing in different cities in the United States and Canada. For the time being, no other dates have been announced in other countries, but these concerts are an opportunity not to be missed.
Their last tour will begin in September of this year, with 40 confirmed stops, and it will go from 2023 to January 26, 2024. During their final concerts they will also be accompanied by the famous band The Black Crowes, who will serve as the opening act for their presentations. Unfortunately, and to the surprise of many fans, Joey Kramer, the founding drummer of the group, will not be on the tour due to family and health issues. However, we can expect that the shows will maintain the energy that they have always provided to their fans.
Get ready because their final journey begins the 2nd of September, and it will be wild. It's actually hard to say goodbye to the group that defined the rock era in the 1990's. They will certainly be sorely missed after their tour. It may be the end of their journey, but they will never be forgotten.
