Man, this one is bittersweet.

For 50 years, the rock band Aerosmith has been rocking venues with massive hits like “Dream On,” “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” ‘Walk This Way,” “Sweet Emotion,” and so many more, led by front man Steven Tyler.

However, a wise man once said that all great things must come to an end, and it appears to be the end of the road for the band that kickstarted in Boston, Massachusetts back in 1970.

Aerosmith has officially announced their farewell tour, dubbed the Peace Out Tour, kicking off on September 2nd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wells Fargo Center, and rounding out on January 26th, 2024 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec.

They shared in a Twitter post:

“PEACE OUT! After 50 years, 10 world tours, and playing for over 100 million fans… it’s time for one last go!”

The rock band The Black Crowes will be joining Aerosmith for the trip as well.

According to People, bandmates Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford shared in a statement:

“It’s not goodbye, it’s PEACE OUT! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.”

Drummer Joey Kramer will not be joining the band for the tour, as he said he is sitting out to focus on his family and his health.

The band weighed in on his absence:

“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.”

Man, it’s been one helluva run for Steven Tyler and the boys, and it’s sad to see it all coming to an end.
