Aerosmith Announces Farewell Tour: Look + Listen

Running from September 2023 to January 2024, Aerosmith have confirmed that their Peace Out Tour will be their farewell trek.

In 1970, lead vocalist / front man Steven Tyler, bassist Tom Hamilton, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarists Joe Perry and Ray Tabano formed Aerosmith. Tabano left the group and was replaced by Brad Whitford before the iconic rockers released their self-titled debut in 1973, and the band has since recorded 14 more studio albums, the most recent of which, Music From Another Dimension!, (2012.)

In much the same way as he did not take part in the 2022 dates of the group’s Las Vegas residency, Joey Kramer will not be performing on Aerosmith’s Peace Out Tour. Instead, John Douglas will sit behind the drum kit and in a statement, Aerosmith explained: “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.”

On a personal note, Steven Tyler was recently sued by a woman who claims that the musician sexually assaulted and sexually battered her when she was a minor in the 1970s. Tyler has denied the allegations.
