Steven Tyler has announced a solo tour of North America and Europe.

The Aerosmith frontman released his debut solo album We’re All Somebody From Somewhere back in 2016, with the new dates set to kick off at Lewiston’s Artpark Amphitheatre on June 12 and wrapping up at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town on August 7.

Tyler wrote and recorded the record in Nashville, Tennessee, telling Classic Rock: “I came to Nashville. I rented a house. Now I just bought a house, so I’m living here full-on. It’s a musical Mecca. I co-wrote with everyone down here, and I think I’ve done some of my best work through this country head.

“This town still has the passion for music. It hasn’t lost it through business and money, which may be big here but the music aspect still has the passion. Artists come here come from all over the world to be part of it, and there’s so much music dripping out of the honeycomb of this town that I’m in it.

“I’m in it neck-deep. I’m going to stay here, I’m going to live here. I love it here.”

Aerosmith haven’t released an album since 2012’s Music From Another Dimension, but in January, guitarist Joe Perry said he would like to record new music and hinted that the band would start celebrating its 50th anniversary towards the end of 2018.
