For more than 30 years AEROSMITH has defined American Rock 'n' Roll. Just a brief overview of their remarkable career is truly mind-boggling: over 150 million albums sold, induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, countless awards (four Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards, and 12 MTV Awards), and a diehard "Blue Army" fan-base numbering in the millions worldwide. Since 1972 they’ve criss-crossed the globe nearly 36 times and performed at two Super Bowls (reaching a combined viewing audience of nearly two billion).
Described by Mojo editor Phil Alexander in a May '07 cover story as “America's greatest hard rock act,” the members of AEROSMITH--STEVEN TYLER (vocals), JOE PERRY (guitar), BRAD WHITFORD (guitar), TOM HAMILTON (bass) and JOEY KRAMER (drums)--remain creatively vital, and are the platinum standard for artistic and commercial success in the music business. Through it all they have defeated the odds, silenced their critics and have undeniably withstood the test of time.
In 2007, Aerosmith triumphantly performed 35 dates in 20 countries. It included their first-ever performances in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Bangalore, India, where they electrified a crowd of 22,000 fans at the Palace Grounds. Another 50,000 fell under the group’s spell when they performed at the Hard Rock Café’s London Calling event in Hyde Park. The overseas trek concluded with two unforgettable shows in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
Recent Aerosmith releases include: the 2004 blues-influenced CD Honkin’ On Bobo (which received a four-star review in Rolling Stone); 2004’s live DVD You Gotta Move; 2005’s live CD Rockin’ The Joint, and a 2006 career retrospective CD with two unreleased songs. The band is now in the studio working on a new album.
