Aerosmith + Slash Set to Announce 2014 U.S. Tour
Two of hard rock’s legendary acts are teaming up for a 2014 U.S. summer tour, as Aerosmith will hit the road with Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The news was revealed Friday (March 21) via tweets from members of Aerosmith, as well as Slash himself.
It doesn’t get much bigger than Aerosmith and Slash when it comes to American hard rock. Aerosmith have recorded some of the biggest rock hits on the planet, while Slash achieved mammoth success as a member of Guns N’ Roses. Both acts are known for their down and dirty, raw approach to rock ‘n’ roll.
Aerosmith’s most recent album is 2012’s ‘Music From Another Dimension,’ but you can be sure the band will be playing their classic hits like ‘Dream On,’ ‘Walk This Way’ and ‘Sweet Emotion.’
Slash, meanwhile, is getting ready to release his next album with his bandmates Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The guitarist revealed during South By Southwest that the disc is expected to arrive in September, while Kennedy tweeted out a couple days ago that he just completed the album’s first vocal.
While no dates have been announced yet for the Aerosmith / Slash 2014 U.S. tour, both acts have confirmed the news via Tweets from Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and drummer Joey Kramer, as well as a Tweet from Slash. Check out those Tweets, as well as Myles Kennedy’s update on the new Slash album:
