Rock legends Aerosmith will return to the road this September, as their Peace Out Farewell Tour resumes almost exactly a year after being abandoned. The original dates were announced in May 2023, but the trek faltered after just three shows, when Steven Tyler sustained damage to his vocal cords, leading to the cancellation of six shows. 

Two weeks later the band postponed the rest of the tour when Tyler's injury was discovered to be more serious than initially thought, and that he'd fractured his larynx and would require a significant period of rest and recuperation.  

"I am heartbroken to not be out there with Aerosmith, my brothers and the incredible Black Crowes, rocking with the best fans in the world," said Tyler at the time. "I promise we will be back as soon as we can!"

Now they're back. The tour will resume on September 20 at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh PA, and run all the way through until February 26 next year, when the curtain will fall at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, NY. The Black Crowes have again been confirmed as the support act, although they won't make the first night, when genre-bending YouTube sensation Teddy Swims will open.  

The two opening shows in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are scheduled despite the venues having hosted shows on the truncated run of 2023 dates, perhaps in recognition that Tyler's voice wasn't up to par. Tickets for the original dates are still valid, while a general sale for unsold tickets begins on Friday April 12 at 10am local time via Ticketmaster
