Aerosmith have announced dates for their 2012 Global Warming North American Tour, which will launch on June 16 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and wrap up on August 8 in Tacoma, Washington. The 18-date tour will also feature Cheap Trick as the opening act.
"The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with your mothers," said frontman Steven Tyler in a statement.
Added bassist Tom Hamilton, "After touring Japan and South America last year we're psyched about bringing it all back for the hometown fans. We're going to break out the classics, the hits and maybe even some of the new ones we've been banging out in the studio. Can't wait to get to Minneapolis."
Aerosmith's untitled, upcoming record is still in progress with producer Jack Douglas at the helm. No word yet on whether it will be released before, during or after the band's tour.
