Aerosmith Announces Farewell Dates In Europe

After more than 45 years, Aerosmith is soon to call it quits, but not before one more global tour to say goodbye. The band has announced its plans for Europe in 2017, and is sure to have more in the near future.

The new dates start with a city that actually isn’t in Europe, but in Tel Aviv, Israel, May 17. After that, Aerosmith hits Batumi, Georgia, on May 20 and stays on the continent until July 5, when the band plays in Zurich, Switzerland.

Along the way, festivals like Hellfest, Sweden Rock Festival, Rock Fest Barcelona and Download Festival are all on the routing, which will give massive numbers of fans the chance to see the Bad Boys from Boston one more time.

The group was on tour in South America and Mexico recently and last played the U.S. at Kaboo Del Mar in September.

Check out the tour trailer video below:

Steven Tyler recently told Howard Stern that the band was coming to an end, saying “We’re doing a farewell tour, but only because it’s time.” Guitarist Joe Perry played as a part of the Hollywood Vampires earlier this year and Tyler recently released a solo album full of country/pop music, so the band members’ energies do increasingly seem to be elsewhere.
