Aerosmith Announces Farewell Tour in 2023 with Stops in Texas
Aerosmith has announced a farewell tour with a couple of Texas dates that will begin in September of 2023. The tour is to celebrate the band's 50-plus years together, and they're calling it “Peace Out.”
"I think it's about time," guitarist Joe Perry said in an interview with AP.
They will be playing the 40 concerts without Joey Kramer. The band released the following statement:
While Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably made the decision to sit out the currently scheduled touring dates to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.
Aerosmith also includes frontman Steven Tyler, bassist Tom Hamilton, and guitarist Brad Whitford. Drummer John Douglas will play in place of Kramer.
The Black Crowes will be the opener for the slated shows, which include two Texas dates. The "Peace Out" tour will start up on Sept. 2 in Philadelphia and wrap up on Jan. 26 in Montreal. Your chance to catch Aerosmith in the Lone Star State is as follows.
Monday, October 23: Austin, TX (Moody Center ATX)
Wednesday, November 1: San Antonio, TX (AT&T Center)
Tuesday, November 7: Dallas, TX (American Airlines Center)
If you're in El Paso and looking for a closer location not in Texas, there is a Phoenix show on December 10th happening at the Footprint Center.
The band announced its final tour with a "breaking news" YouTube video. Check it out.
Aerosmith was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, while Steven Tyler and Joe Perry made it into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2013.
