Aerosmith will perform on the American Idol season finale on May 23rd.
The rockers will take advantage of the fact that their singer is a judge on the popular reality program to create hype for their upcoming “Global Warming Tour” alongside Cheap Trick.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Joe Perry discussed the new album, inter-band relationships and future possibilities.
When asked if his stance on American Idol and Tyler hosting had changed since appearing on the show to perform “Happy Birthday” to Tyler, Perry responded, “It wasn’t about the show – it was about how we found out about it. I was pissed off about that whole thing, but I’ve played on it before and the band is gonna play on it in the last episode of the season to debut the new single. So it’s not about the show, it’s about how we found out about it. It was a bit of a shock and it took us off balance.”
The group is believed to perform their new single “Legendary Child.”
Aerosmith will kick-off their “Global Warming” tour on June 16th in Minneapolis.
