Rock ‘n’ roll legends Aerosmith have announced the complete itinerary for their upcoming Blue Army Tour. “The name ‘Blue Army’ came from the fact that everyone in our audience from the 70s were wearing blue denim and it looked like a sea of blue, thus The Blue Army,” said guitarist Joe Perry. The trek kicks off on June 13 at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ and wraps up on August 7 with special headlining performance at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Concert for Legends. Tickets can be purchased via Aerosmith.com/Tour.
Last summer, the band headlined Download Festival 2014 in Donington, UK. On February 26, for one night only, Aerosmith brought their theatrical experience Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014 to the big screen. The live concert film was screened in select theaters across the country. Aerosmith embarked on the massive Let Rock Rule Tour this past summer with guitar great Slash. Aerosmith’s own guitar great, Joe Perry, recently released his memoir Rocks – My Life In and Out of Aerosmith. Aerosmith’s latest effort, 2012’s Music From Another Dimension, debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on Billboard Rock Albums via Columbia Records. It’s the band’s long-awaited follow-up to 2001’s Just Push Play, which hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified platinum. In 2004, Aerosmith released a blues cover album Honkin’ On Bobo, that featured one original song. Their latest album was recorded in Los Angeles as well as at the band’s studio in Massachusetts. It was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen. – by Matt Bishop (Photos Courtesy of Aerosmith/MSO PR)
