Aerosmith Set to Arrive in Oakland on July 23rd for Start of 'Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock' Tour

By |

Aerosmith-coverart.gifNo wind, no rain, no motorcycle mishaps can stop Aerosmith's "Cocked, Locked and Ready to Rock Tour" which begins their 18-city Live Nation produced US Summer Tour starting on Friday, July 23rd at Oakland's Oracle Arena. Aerosmith has just finished a run of dates in Europe and South America but all agree that playing for their American fans is the ultimate. Clearly the Aerosmith army couldn't agree more. The band is scheduled to play their hometown along with the J. Geils Band at a sold out Fenway Park show on August 14th.

"After last summer, we've been looking forward to getting back out there with a vengeance. I can't wait to feel the roar of the American audiences again and give this summer what it needs - a double dose of Aerosmith!" commented Steven Tyler.

Aerosmith's Joe Perry had a motorcycle mishap last week but stated, "Just like the name of the tour, I am 'Cocked, Locked and Ready to Rock.' It was a close call. My bike is smashed but I am ok from head to toe. I want to thank all of the fans for their emails and support."

"After all the trials and tribulations we've come out into one of the most fun tours in recent memory. We had an amazing time in South America and Europe and now we're ready to bring it home," said Tom Hamilton.

Aerosmith will be celebrating their 40th anniversary, and have sold over 150 million records. They are Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, recipients of four Grammys, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and twelve MTV Video Music Awards.
Sammy Hagar and the Wabos will open eleven of the sixteen announced shows.
