TOM HAMILTON: 'AEROSMITH Still Has A Way To Go Before We Completely Finish'

During a brand new interview with EonMusic, AEROSMITH bassist Tom Hamilton was asked about the band's current status, a little over a month it was announced that the group would embark on a farewell tour in 2017.

"Well, things have been on hold and I think they're about to not be on hold over the next few months," he said. "We have a show, a festival we're doing in September out [on the] West [Coast], and then we have a South American tour in October and then a few months later we'll start what we're thinking of as pretty much our last conventional AEROSMITH tour. Who knows how long that will go? This band still has a lot of shows in 'em. AEROSMITH still has a way to go before we completely finish."

AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry recently told Guitar World magazine that the band's final tour "could go on for two years." He added: "There are still a lot of places we haven't played yet that we want to play."

While on hiatus, the members of AEROSMITH have been keeping busy with solo projects — Perry recently hit the road with his star-studded side project HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, featuring Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum, and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bassist Robert DeLeo. AEROSMITH guitarist Brad Whitford joined forces once again with Derek St. Holmes for a spring and summer run.

Hamilton is currently on the road with THIN LIZZY as part of a tour to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the death of the band's frontman Phil Lynott and to celebrate 40 years since the release of the "Jailbreak" album.
