NORTH AMERICAN SUMMER TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUEST
SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS
KICKS OFF JULY 10 IN NEW YORK

Who better to declare LET ROCK RULE than AEROSMITH, America’s Greatest Rock Band? Rock’s most lethal army - Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford - and special guest SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will join forces for the LET ROCK RULE tour, this summer’s definitive rock & roll experience.

Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the LET ROCK RULE tour kicks off on Thursday, July 10 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, NY (see full itinerary below). AEROSMITH and SLASH - longtime friends who’ve performed together throughout the years - will also take over Boston, Mass. (Xfinity Center), Los Angeles, Cali. (The Forum) and San Francisco, Cali. (Sleep Train Pavilion) among other cities, before wrapping Tuesday, September 9 in Clarkston, Mich. (DTE Energy Music Theatre).

“Looking forward to inciting a riot and building the tribal bonfire even higher--it’s a win win with Slash,” said Steven Tyler.

Says Joe Perry: “The writing’s on the wall--Aerosmith and Slash. We’re gonna let rock rule this summer. Catch us if you can.”

Says Slash: “Aerosmith is one of my all time favorite bands, and one of the greatest rock ‘n roll bands of all time. It’s an honor for me to go out & tour with them and keep the rock ‘n roll banner flying high.”

The excitement for LET ROCK RULE began ramping up mysteriously last week when the AEROSMITH logo and the tour announcement date of 4.8.14 was bombed on various buildings in downtown Los Angeles by JOE PERRY with acclaimed street artist Risk. Following this, AEROSMITH drummer JOEY KRAMMER stepped up the momentum and went to Downtown Austin with street artist, CHUNK, to continue the “LET ROCK RULE” tagging. It was all first reported by TMZ - http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/04/joe-perry-grafitti-aerosmith-spray-paint-logo-tour/ - and the bombing has continued every night.

JOE PERRY says, "I have always felt that AEROSMITH was Americas hometown band and what better way than to take matters into our own hands to spread the word.”

Earlier today, STEVEN TYLER and JOE PERRY revealed on On Air With Ryan Seacrest that they would perform a free set to announce the LET ROCK RULE tour. AEROSMITH, with a special guest appearance by SLASH, played a roof-raising set for the assembled crowd at the Whisky A Go Go, the historic Hollywood venue where they performed their first Los Angeles gig in 1973.

AEROSMITH’s North American summer dates will follow the band’s overseas dates kicking off Wednesday, May 14 in Istanbul, Turkey and will hit 16 countries including stops in Russia, France and the U.K. before wrapping Wednesday, July 2 in Kiev, Ukraine.
