Legendary rockers AEROSMITH are known for throwing a helluva party, and they’ve got a special one planned for their beloved hometown on the day before Election Day, Monday, November 5. They’re planning to show up somewhere in the city, around noon, and play on the streets. That’s all Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) are telling us for now. Well, they would like to tell us more, but they’re cooperating with authorities who will let them reveal the location the morning of November 5.
They’ve got a good reason to celebrate: their new album, “Music From Another Dimension!” (Columbia Records) is out November 6. And they got a message, too: people, get out and vote! For whomever you like. Just do it. Be a “Freedom Fighter,” to quote a song title from the new album.
“Anyone who votes is a Freedom Fighter,” says Joe Perry.
America’s greatest rock band will then take the party on the road as they’re set to return for the second leg of The Global Warming Tour launching November 8. The month-long, 14-city arena tour will bring them and support act CHEAP TRICK to New York City (Madison Square Garden), Los Angeles (Staples Center) and Las Vegas (MGM Grand Garden Arena), among other cities. Expect nothing less than killer sets and prisoners will most certainly be taken.
