Following seven triumphant South American "Cocked, Locked, Ready To Rock Tour" dates (the final one playing this evening in Costa Rica, the largest concert in that country's history) and eleven upcoming European dates, Boston hard rock legends AEROSMITH will be more than warmed up and ready to arrive in the U.S. in what will surely be THE concert event of the summer. Live Nation, the national tour promoter for AEROSMITH confirmed that The Bad Boys of Boston are hitting the road for an 18-city US tour this summer with the "Cocked, Locked, Ready To Rock Tour" that begins on July 23 in Oakland, California. Tickets go on sale in select markets beginning Friday, June 4 at

The recently announced hometown Fenway Park date scheduled for August 14 sold out in a record-breaking 23 minutes. AEROSMITH will be joined at the Fenway show by THE J. GEILS BAND.

Steven Tyler said, “I thought it was time to get my MOJO back, by rockin South America and Europe with a little HOME RUN at Boston's Fenway Park thrown in and then off to the rest of America to do what we do best! We're gonna rock you into the middle of next week!"

"This is a perfect time for us to tour North America as we are just completing a very successful tour of South America. We are looking forward to our European tour next month and then bringing our show back to our home soil. We are running on all cylinders and are 'cocked locked and ready to rock!" commented Joe Perry.

"We're having a blast tearing up South America. I can't stop thinking about how great it's going to feel bringing it home this summer," said Tom Hamilton.
