Tyler commented on the tour, according to the article:
...the band is back with a new vengeance. He adds that he and his legendary hard-rock crew will kick your ass and make out with your mothers.
After touring Japan and South America last year we're psyched about bringing it all back for the hometown fans, says bassist Tom Hamilton. We're going to break out the classics, the hits and maybe even some of the new ones we've been banging out in the studio. Can't wait to get to Minneapolis!
