Steven Tyler Announces 2018 Solo Tour Dates
Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler has just announced a batch of solo tour dates in America and Europe. Tyler will head out on the road to jam solo material along with Aerosmith favorites this summer.
In 2016, Tyler released his debut solo album, We’re All Somebody From Somewhere. The release saw Steven Tyler pursue a country sound, actually getting him a No. 1 spot on the Billboard U.S. Top Country Albums chart. The album got lukewarm reviews from critics, but it moved over 50,000 copies in the U.S. alone.
Tyler will hit the road beginning June 12 in Lewiston, N.Y. with his backing band, Nashville’s Loving Mary Band. The Sisterhood Band, which features Rod Stewart’s daughter Ruby, will also perform at select shows. Steven Tyler’s tour will wrap Aug. 7 at London’s O2 Forum.
The singer aims to use his tour to more intimately talk about his biggest hits. "What would I not pay to go see [Paul] McCartney, but instead of playing with whoever he's with now, actually do [a show] where he tells you what he was thinking when he wrote 'Yesterday'?" he explained. "That's what I'm doing. I figured I'd talk about 'Sweet Emotion' and 'Dream On' and where I was when I wrote it, and 'Seasons of Wither' and how I played it."
Tickets for Steven Tyler’s solo tour will go on sale March 21. Check out the full list of shows below.
