TAMPA, FL – America’s greatest rock band delivered absolutely killer sets on the first leg of their triumphant, sold-out Global Warming Tour this past summer, with critics dropping comments like “stunning”, jaw-dropping”, “impassioned intensity”, “seamless swagger”, “epic rock moments”, “a wonder to behold”, “Aerosmith always managed to reinvent itself for the masses without losing its inherent musicality”, “Make no mistake, Aerosmith remains king.”
They aren’t done yet. More prisoners will be taken when Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) return for the second leg of The Global Warming Tour launching November 8. The month-long, 14-city arena tour will take the band across country, including a stop at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on December 11 at 7:30 PM. They’re fully armed with career-defining hits and blazing songs from their new album “Music From Another Dimension” out November 6 on Columbia Records. They’re the only band of their stature with all-original members who are playing better than ever.
The Live Nation-produced tour will include support act Cheap Trick. Tickets go on sale Monday, September 24 at 10:00 AM. American Express card members are eligible for an advanced presale beginning this Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 AM (local time).

“Music From Another Dimension,” recently chosen by People magazine (9-17-12) as one of “5 Must Have Albums For Fall,” marks Aerosmith’s 15th studio album and is the first studio album in 11 years to feature all-new material from the band. The album was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band’s studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen. The album abounds with one highlight after another, including “Out Go The Lights,” “Oh Yeah,” “Luv XXX,” “We All Fall Down,” “Street Jesus” and “Can’t Stop Loving You,” on which Tyler duets with Carrie Underwood. The album also includes “Freedom Fighter” which features Johnny Depp on backing vocals. The album’s first two singles have been released simultaneously and are now lighting up the airwaves. “What Could Have Been Love” is impacting on Hot AC stations and “Lover A Lot” on Rock, Active Rock, and Classic Rock stations.
Aerosmith are a living piece of American music history, having sold over 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYs, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards among many other honors. Proving that they can cross genre-boundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC’s “Walk This Way.” With scores of multi-platinum albums, Aerosmith continues to inspire generations to get their wings, get a grip and just push play. It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time.
