AEROSMITH To Perform On 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' This Thursday

August 14, 2018

AEROSMITH will perform on the Thursday, August 16 episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon".

The legendary rockers' appearance on the program will come one day after they unveil the first details of their upcoming Las Vegas residency on the "Today" show.

The news of AEROSMITH's residency was broken by guitarist Joe Perry, who told SiriusXM's Beatles Channel that AEROSMITH will hit Sin City in 2019 leading up to the band's 50th anniversary. Perry said: "We're going to be doing a residency in Vegas starting next spring. What we want to do is something that I haven't seen beforeā€¦ just downsizing our live show, just playing in a smaller place. We want to do something different. We're in the middle of the production now. What we're talking about is having an experience that you wouldn't be able to see on a regular AEROSMITH tour."

He continued: "I feel like we've been out of the wind for a while and it seems like it would be a really cool thing to bring some of the history back, so the production is gonna look like that. But without losing what we are: a hardcore rock and roll band.

"We're having almost weekly conversations about the production and how we're gonna keep it true and honest to the heartbeat of the rock and roll that we play but still add an element that people will want to see. I haven't been this excited about a project with AEROSMITH in quite a while."

AEROSMITH officially formed in Boston in 1970 and last performed on May 5 at the New Orleans Jazz Fest.

In 2017, AEROSMITH announced a run of dates called "Aero-Vederci Baby!", but stopped short of calling it a final tour.

AEROSMITH hasn't released a new studio album since 2012's "Music From Another Dimension!"

Perry issued a solo disc, titled "Sweetzerland Manifesto", on January 19.
