AEROSMITH Announce New Tour & Threaten to Make Out With Your Mom

The dysfunctional rock icons have reunited for their 2012 Global Warming North American Tour, which kicks off June 16th at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and wrap ups August 8th in Tacoma, Washington.
Aerosmith is prepped and ready to hit the road despite public bickering between guitarist Joe Perry and frontman Steven Tyler, who is now infamous for his American Idol TV gig. Cheap Trick will open for the rockers on each stop of the upcoming tour, which is the first in North America since Aerosmith hit the road in 2010.
"The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with your mothers," said Tyler.
Perry and Tyler have been at odds since the singer joined the reality TV series American Idol, with Perry claiming the show was "one step above (Teenage Mutant) Ninja Turtles". "It's his business, but I don't want Aerosmith's name involved with it," said Perry.
Aerosmith has been in the studio with producer Jack Douglas working on a new album that has a tentative release date this May. Check out the first set of tour dates for Aerosmith's Global Warming Tour run with Cheap Trick. Note - more dates to be announced later.
