Aerosmith Reunite, Prepare for European Tour
Steven Tyler and the rest of Aerosmith have agreed to set aside their differences, for the time being, and accept an offer to tour Europe this summer. Billboard magazine reports that the band will play at the Sweden Rock Festival and Download Festival in England before going around Europe for several shows.
Aerosmith’s appearance at the Download Festival had appeared in peril of being scratched after the members of the band threatened to find a temporary replacement for Tyler. However, Andy Copping of Live Nation U.K., the festival organizer, said that the band should appear with Tyler or not at all. “There’s no Aerosmith without Steven Tyler,” he said.
Aerosmith announced in October last year that they will be taking an indefinite leave as a band to iron out personal and health problems. It was during that time that guitarist Joe Perry reportedly brought the idea of hiring a new vocalist.
