Aerosmith will follow in the footsteps of Britney Spears and Celine Dion with a Las Vegas residency.
The rock band have announced an 18-date Las Vegas residency entitled Deuces Are Wild for April 2019 which will coincide with their 50th anniversary.
The shows will begin on 6 April at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM in Sin City, with the final date currently scheduled for 9 July.
Teasing their epic plans, frontman Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry said: We are going to bring hot, sexy rock and roll to Vegas!!
The residency allows us to take 50 years of performing experience and create a one of kind show with the best music, best production design, best sound, in a world-class state of the art venue. These shows will be epic!
The special gigs will feature never-seen-before visuals and audio from Aerosmith recording sessions from producer Giles Martin, who was responsible for The Beatles Love Cirque du Soleil concerts in the gambling capital.
And it will also see the worlds first THX Certified live performance presented in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound.
The rockers had fans thinking they were quitting the road when they went out on the Aero-Vederci Baby! Tour last year, but they later reassured them that it wouldnt be the last theyll see of them with the impending five-decade milestone on the horizon.
Joe said earlier this year: I think the way things are going, we are going to try and take it easy.
We may do a couple more one-offs — maybe some festivals over the next six or eight months.
In 2019, we will be closing in on our 50th anniversary, so we are planning some dates and a tour to celebrate that. Right now, we are pretty much laying low and finishing up some solo things before we start that.
Frontman Steven previously admitted that the Aero-Vederci Baby! Tour was more of a hello goodbye than a farewell.
He explained: Were always thinking about what to do for a tour.
And so many bands have said “This is our last tour” to generate tickets and all that stuff – bands that have been around as long as we have.
So we figured, were going to Europe, were gonna do whatever were doing here, and people havent seen us for a while, so how about throwing that kind of mysticism out? And “Aero-Vederci” says it but it doesnt say it. Its like “hello goodbye” in one beautiful – where Joe and I came from – Italian saying.
Tickets for Deuces Are Wild go on sale 16 August for the bands Aero Force One fan club, and general sale on 24 August.
