Aerosmith Retiring From the Road, Announces 40-Date Arena Farewell Tour

Aerosmith has announced a 40-date farewell tour for this fall, saying in an announcement Monday morning that the band is calling it quits on road dates after a more than five-decade career.

Their “Peace Out” tour begins Sept. 2 in Philadelphia and is scheduled to wrap up Jan. 26, 2024 in Montreal. The hometown show for Boston on the tour is slated for New Year’s Eve.

The Black Crowes will open the Live Nation-produced trek. All dates go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

“It’s not goodbye it’s peace out!” said an unsentimental statement jointly attributed to the band members. “Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.”

Founding drummer Joey Kramer, who sat out the group’s recent Las Vegas residence, will not be part of this tour either, the announcement stated. The wording around his absence was similar to what was stated in explaining him being MIA from Vegas.

“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,” the statement said. “Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”
