The Press Release:
JOE PERRY–legendary guitarist, co-founding member, principal songwriter and co-producer of Aerosmith–has just confirmed more shows in support of his 2018 SWEETZERLAND MANIFESTO (via his Roman Records imprint, distributed worldwide by AMPED Distribution) solo album. The headlining dates kick off November 30 in Iowa and include stops in New York, Detroit, Philadelphia and more before wrapping up with three Los Angeles-area shows. These performances follow gigs in April where PERRY debuted his new touring band featuring his Aerosmith bandmate Brad Whitford and Gary Cherone of Extreme taking on the lead vocals. Tickets for the new shows go on sale this Friday, October 12 at 10am local time, with a special pre-sale for Joe Perry email list subscribers and social media followers beginning today (October 9); please visit www.joeperry.com for more details. In addition, special VIP packages (which include a Meet and Greet, ticket to the show, and more) will be available starting tomorrow (Wednesday, October 10).
Along with choice cuts from his catalog of solo records, JOE will be performing rarely played Aerosmith classics from the band’s early records including “Toys In The Attic,” “Get Your Wings,” and “Rocks,” among others. SWEETZERLAND MANIFESTO marks JOE’s sixth solo album and is comprised of 10 new tracks all written or co-written by JOE (many with the album’s guest vocalists), except for a cover of “Eve Of Destruction” with JOE on lead vocals and Johnny Depp on drums. The album features guest appearances from a long list of JOE’s friends, colleagues and rock and roll icons. Highlights include “Aye, Aye, Aye,” which JOE co-wrote with the track’s vocalist Robin Zander, and three collaborations with David Johansen, who sings “I Wanna Roll,” “Haberdasher Blues,” and “I’m Going Crazy,” plus as many co-writes with Terry Reid whose lead vocals light up “I’ll Do Happiness” (with Zak Starkey on drums), “Sick & Tired” and “Won’t Let Me Go.” A few days before the album’s January release, JOE and his all-star band crushed it at a two-hour plus set at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve only ever caught Joe Perry twice in concert despite being a fan of his playing for many years and actually, I’ve only caught Aerosmith twice as well which kind of surprises me. That being said I am rather interested in a tour that features not only Brad Whitford but also the great Gary Charone who I’ve been a fan of for many years as well. They’ll be hitting my region in early December and I hope to see a lot of friends there. What do you think about this tour? Chime in down below in the comments. Onto the rest of the stuff to share with you. I can’t believe how busy this month is at only 11 days in so far. Is it just me? It isn’t right? Whew.
