Several members of Aerosmith previously indicated that 2017 might be the year of its “farewell” tour, as they all grow older and it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain the original membership. Frontman Steven Tyler will spend May until August performing his solo work and guitarist Joe Perry kicks off a tour with Hollywood Vampires in May.

Tyler also hinted in an interview with Rolling Stone that the band might consider recording a final album for 2017.

“We’re probably doing a farewell tour. Look, there’s two bands that still have the original members, us and the Stones,” Tyler said. “I’m grateful for that. Whether we do a farewell tour or go into the studio and do another record, I’m just excited about it.”
