It seems that Aerosmith is once again toying with the idea of a tour, but this time it truly could be the last farewell.
Recently, the band’s iconic logo has been spotted across arenas in America, with its lettering spelling out the phrase ‘Peace Out,’ fans are now dubbing this as the ‘Peace Out Tour,’ which, would mean that the band would be closing up shop. This could also be from the allegations that have been thrown on vocalist, Steven Tyler, which would lead to tons of stress and him wanting to call it a day. Some fans have asked for Alex Van Halen to join Aerosmith.
Of course, there’s no word on if the trail has much to do with this.
Fans have been eagerly anticipating details of a potential tour, which guitarist Joe Perry hinted at in a recent interview with the Boston Globe. Perry suggested that the quintet would embark on an extended US tour this year, with shows continuing into 2024.
Taking a look over at the band’s website, we are able to view a countdown clock, adding to speculation that the announcement is imminent. Cities where the logo has appeared in recent days include Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, San Francisco, and of course, Boston. Fans have been sharing sightings of the logo on social media, with rock media personality Mitch Lafon compiling a thread on Twitter.
Keep in mind, this also could just be a tour as an apology or a mulligan because of their ‘Deuces Are Wild’ residency in Las Vegas was delayed by frontman Steven Tyler’s decision to seek treatment for drug use.
The potential farewell tour is a bittersweet prospect for fans of the legendary rock band. On the one hand, it would be an opportunity to see them perform live one last time. On the other, it marks the end of an era for a band that has been a cornerstone of the rock music scene for over four decades. As with any farewell tour, there will inevitably be questions about whether it truly is the end, or if there might be a reunion or occasional performance in the future. For now, though, fans await the announcement of what promises to be a momentous tour.
