Aerosmith and Slash Reveal 2014 ‘Let Rock Rule’ Tour Dates

Aerosmith and Slash have made their plan to tour North America this summer official by finally revealing the dates and places where you check them out. The trek will feature twenty-one shows spread across the United States and into Canada.

Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and lead guitarist Joe Perry promoted the news with an appearance on the daytime talk show ‘Ellen.’ Tyler revealed that the history between the two camps goes back further than you’d imagine — in fact, a drawing of Aerosmith made by a young Slash can be found on the inside of the group’s most recent album. Perry had previously teased the upcoming tour and the announcement of the planned dates by spray-painting a number of walls in Los Angeles.

The tour kicks off on July 10, in Wantagh, New York and will wind its way across the country for three months before concluding in Nova Scotia on September 12.

Tickets for the “Let Rock Rule” tour will go on sale this weekend via Live Nation.

Slash Talks To Artisan News At South By Soutwest (Video) – Blabbermouth.net

Legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) was interviewed by Artisan News (see video below) at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas where he threw the first-ever musician-focused Hackathon, titled Slashathon, at Capital Factory. For seven hours straight, teams of technology developers worked to create new and interesting music-oriented applications for promotion on-the-spot. After the seven-hour window, developers gave full demo presentations of the hacks to Slash, who was joined by fellow judges Bram Cohen (Bitorrent) and Robert Scoble (first Microsoft employee, Rackspace). Three winners were selected. The Grand Prize includes a Gibson guitar autographed by Slash, $1,000 dollars and the opportunity to have Slash use the winning hack with the release of his new album with MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS, due out in early fall 2014.

Slash wrapped-up his run in Austin during South By Southwest with a performance this past Thursday night (March 13) at Butler Park. Slash performed “Foxy Lady”, “Red House”, “Purple Haze”, “All Along The Watchtower” and “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the “Jimi Hendrix Celebration” with Wayne Kramer (MC5), Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney), Dave and Phil Alvin and Robby Krieger (THE DOORS) on the Outdoor Stage at Butler Park in Austin.
