Steven Tyler vague about end of Aerosmith

January 3, 2017

Is this the end for Aerosmith...or not? Although the band had previously announced a farewell tour of Europe, dubbed Aero-Verdici Baby, Steven Tyler won't declare an end date for the group.

He told Billboard, “The European tour is booked, locked and cocked and that's ready for next summer. And then we're coming back and we're doing the rest of the world. Farewell? I'm not sure, but truth is, who knows how long we’ll be touring as the original band?"

He continued: "I think that we're all freak of natures and Joe [Perry] and I were talking on the phone yesterday and he said to me, 'We have no right being as healthy as we are after what we've been through.' Whether it's through the abuses of being on tour for 40 years or the abuses of substances or the abuses of life on life's terms, there's been a lot of abuse. But we're both looking pretty damn good for what's going on.”

Tyler also discussed the strength of his relationship with Perry, saying: “Aerosmith is something else you'll never see again. We all love each other, five of us are still alive, every one of us is still playing better than ever.  Yes, we have ups and downs. But one of the things I'm learning in life is that being away from each other is sometimes the healthiest thing we can do. I dare to say that being away from each other may have saved a few marriages on this planet. The one thing that's never failed is that when we get back together to rehearse the love is there again and I've been closer to Joe now in the last three weeks, in the last two months than I think of in our whole career - short of when we started."
