Watch AEROSMITH Announce Vegas Residency, Perform On 'Today' Show

AEROSMITH announced its upcoming Las Vegas residency during an appearance this morning on the "Today" show before the group performed its classic songs "Love In An Elevator" and "Sweet Emotion" for fans at New York's Rockefeller Plaza.

The "Deuces Are Wild" show, named for AEROSMITH's 1994 single, will kick off April 6, 2019 at the Park Theater at MGM Grand.

A total of 18 shows will take place during the months of April, June and July. Tickets range from $75 to $750 and go on sale to the general public August 24.

"I feel like we've been out of the wind for a while and it seems like it would be a really cool thing to bring some of the history back, so the production is gonna look like that," guitarist Joe Perry said. "We want to bring a show we can't do when we're on the road on a regular tour. A show that still has AEROSMITH and all the guts of AEROSMITH."

Drummer Joey Kramer added: "The history behind our almost 50 years of being together. As soon as you walk into the Park Theater in Vegas, you're gonna feel it."

Singer Steven Tyler promised a special show for Vegas.

"We're going to keep it raw," he said. "It's going to be beautiful, we're going to rock out and we’re going to use some special effects we haven't used before."

AEROSMITH officially formed in Boston in 1970 and last performed on May 5 at the New Orleans Jazz Fest.

In 2017, AEROSMITH announced a run of dates called "Aero-Vederci Baby!", but stopped short of calling it a final tour.

AEROSMITH hasn't released a new studio album since 2012's "Music From Another Dimension!"
