Speaking about the follow-up to their self-titled 2015 album, Aerosmith (opens in new tab) guitarist Perry said: “Rise came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. 

“There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of.”

Tickets will go on general sale this coming Friday (November 22) along with VIP packages which will include meet and greet opportunities.
