Aerosmith Support Disaster Relief With American Red Cross Vehicles

Aerosmith have donated two community emergency vehicles to the Red Cross of Central Florida to assist with hurricane relief efforts. The Chevrolet Silverado trucks feature the band’s “Walk This Way” logo and they will be delivered in spring 2023.

Guitarist Joe Perry said the following:

“Aerosmith and I were devastated by the disastrous impact of Hurricane Ian. Too often we are seeing these disasters increase in frequency and intensity due to climate change, having a strong Red Cross is more critical than ever before. We’re proud to support the Red Cross and we know these vehicles will be an important tool helping people in need for years to come.”

Eric Corliss, the regional CEO of American Red Cross of Central Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands, also commented::

“During a local disaster, Red Cross community emergency response vehicles are among the first on the scene, driven by compassionate volunteers who provide emergency relief and emotional support,” said . “Every day, the Red Cross is at work across Central Florida helping individuals and communities prepare for disasters and other emergencies. These two new vehicles will be essential to fulfilling that part of our mission.”

Bassist Tom Hamilton added:

“My family has a small place in the area that was hit hardest by Ian. We’ve been going there every year for almost thirty years. Our house was severely damaged and our hearts as well. We know others were affected even more so I’m very grateful to be able to make a contribution towards helping people get their lives back to normal. We made it through Charlie; we’ll make it through this one!”

Aerosmith’s Joe Perry Discusses 50th Anniversary Touring Plans And Upcoming Box Set

During a recent interview with WMMR’s Brent Porche, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry discussed the band’s 50th anniversary plans. Among them are further touring and a new box set.

Perry said the following about the group’s upcoming shows:

“I think that the Fenway show [in Boston in September], being able to pick a date and go, ‘That’s when we wanna play there,’ it’s kind of tough. But coincidentally, it’s a really good time to kind of kick it off. And then, I don’t know; we’re not quite sure what we’re gonna do. I would like to play some of the places we haven’t played in 30 years. It’s really about scheduling and trying to mount a tour, and then we’ll see what we can do with it. It’s kind of like with Fenway… That’s gonna be the kick-off, I think.”

He also added the following about the box set:

“[It] kind of hits on every decade and some videos to go along with it. In the first, say, 30 years of our career, finding video is really hard. With everybody having a camera [now], the show you’re doing is literally online within [minutes]; some of it’s streamed. So the [recent] shows are up there; finding video from the last 20 years, it’s not a problem. It’s finding the stuff that you like.

As it turns out, we actually shot a bunch of songs because the record companies would use them to promote… When they would have these get-togethers every years, all the record companies would show what they have coming out and the latest this and the latest that, so they would shoot promotional videos. So they weren’t quite what we know as the MTV-style videos. So we’re digging down and finding some of that stuff. And then there’s some people that actually had some video from… ‘Cause back then, it was a big camera and they had cartridges that lasted three minutes, so to get a whole song on one, you had to have at least two cameras going.

I actually started carrying a camera with me, and when we played the Silverdome in Detroit [in 1976] — I think we were the second band to play there and the first band to fill it; it was, like, 80,000 seats. It was wild… Anyway, I remember sending somebody up with my camera — way up into the bleachers or whatever — and by the time they got it focused and kind of brought the lens close enough, you couldn’t even tell who was playing. Most cameras didn’t have sound either, but this one did. And it was kind of rough version of whatever we were playing… I mean, stuff keeps popping up. Fans will say ‘I’ve got a piece of this’ or ‘I took some video of that’, but it’s bits and pieces. Most of it are still pictures. We’re constantly finding the stuff.”

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler has entered rehab following a recent relapse. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel their Las Vegas residency dates in June and July.

The group issued the following statement:

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery.

We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must cancel our first set of Las Vegas Residency dates this June and July while he focuses on his well-being.

We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we’ll let you know any further updates as soon as we can. We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time.
