The end for Aerosmith is?

Though Aerosmith have just a few years remaining in their performing career, Joe Perry says they no longer consider their Aero-Vederci Baby! tour to be their farewell outing.

He tells NME, “We thought it was going to be a good idea, when we first started plotting the European run. We were going to do South America and the States for five months, and we thought, ‘We’re getting near the end here.’ We all have lives outside the band… So we thought, ‘It’s time.’ [Then] we were doing interviews and we couldn’t say it. We were looking at each other going, ‘Are we really going to say, “This is the farewell tour?”’ So we kinda changed our minds.”

Perry hopes things last at least until their 50th anniversary in 2020. They played their first concert in Mendon, Massachusetts on November 6th, 1970.
