Steven Tyler is going on tour without his iconic band Aerosmith this year, but that shouldn’t stop fans from queuing up to watch the singer take center-stage. The popular rocker will be following the success of his sold-out Lincoln Center concert event on May 2nd with the “Steven Tyler…Out on a Limb” tour later this year. Tyler will be making stops across the country for a limited-run 19-city North American solo tour.
“Steven Tyler…Out on a Limb” will offer intimate venues for fans to share an evening with the rock legend. Tyler will be backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary, while on tour. Directed by award-winning director, Brett Ratner, the intimate concert performance first premiered at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall as a benefit for Tyler’s philanthropic initiative, Janie’s Fund.
The show debuted to critical success, with Entertainment Weekly raving “Steven Tyler thrills at NYC’s Lincoln Center,” and Billboard noting “with the help of his new backing band Loving Mary and a stage-wide wall of gorgeous visuals, the evening was celebratory, revelatory, and, above all, fun.”
Tyler has been cited by Rolling Stone as “one of the greatest singers of all time.” Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide and Tyler has won four GRAMMY Awards, six American Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards and an Emmy Award.
In addition to having nine number one hits, Aerosmith has received 25 Gold, 18 Platinum and 12 multi-Platinum album certifications. Tyler’s highly anticipated upcoming solo album is scheduled for release later this summer on Big Machine Label Group’s Dot Records.
The tour, promoted by Live Nation, launches July 2nd at the Venetian Theater in Las Vegas and will run through mid-September. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit livenation.com.
