Steven Tyler stole the spotlight for a few moments on American Idol last night, announcing that he and Aerosmith will be hitting the tour this summer for the band's first tour since 2009.
"We're calling the tour the Global Warming Tour," Tyler said like only he can. "Because of the fire. Yo tengo el fuego."
Earlier in the day, Tyler gathered at the Grove in Los Angeles - along with bandmate Joe Perry - and also revealed that the legendary group will release a new album - its first in eight years - some time later this year.
"We've been underground for four months, doing what we do best," said Tyler, adding that they're two songs away from completion on the CD.
But back to the tour: it will kick off on June 16 in Minneapolis, Cheap Trick will open and tickets go on sale tomorrow. Sounds like Amazing news to us! We aren't Cryin upon hearing it! And we Don't Wanna Miss a Thing when it comes to Aerosmith!
