Following their 2014 "Let Rock Rule" tour, Massschusetts rock legends AEROSMITH will return to the road June 13 with their "Blue Army" tour. The trek will take the band's all original members — Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford — to 15 cities before concluding in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Tuesday, August 4.
Says Joe Perry: "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."
Immediately following the tour, AEROSMITH will perform on Friday, August 7 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio for the Pro Football Hall Of Fame's first-ever Concert For Legends. The concert — part of the 2015 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Enshrinement Festival — will pay tribute to the legends of the game on the eve of the Enshrinement for the Class of 2015.
On the "Blue Army" tour, AEROSMITH will perform a set including their career-defining biggest hits, many of which are highlighted of their upcoming "Aerosmith Rocks Donington" 2014 DVD (Eagle Rock Entertainment). Captured live at Donington Park in Leicestershire, U.K. in June 2014 as part of the band's "Let Rock Rule" definitive rock and roll experience, the DVD features 19 of the band's most iconic hits, including "Love In A Elevator", "Janie's Got A Gun", "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", "Dude Looks Like A Lady", "Walk This Way", "Dream On", "Sweet Emotion" and many more.
