BostonHerald.com is reporting that AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry will be at Newbury Comics' 332 Newbury St. location in Boston on May 3 to autograph his self-titled solo CD, released that day. Entry to the 6-8 p.m. event is via a wristband received with purchase of the CD. A wristband gains a spot in line, but does not guarantee fans will meet Perry. A limited number of wristbands will be issued, first-come, first-served. Details: 617-236-4930.
As previously reported, Perry will celebrate the release of his self-titled solo album (which comes out May 3) with a special performance at the Webster Hall club in New York City on May 5. As of now, it's the only show he's announced. Perry told Launch Radio Networks that he had some ideas about a short tour, but it just didn't work out, so this New York City event is the next best thing. "I'd thought about doing that at first, but I, I think that it's gonna take up too much time, so I'm gonna give this a real good kick-off party, and with the help of the record company, we're gonna have some fun with that in New York, and then it's gonna be off on its own," he said.
AEROSMITH is nearing the end of their year-long break, so Perry will rejoin his mates for a lengthy tour starting in late September or early October. The band will also release a live album at that time.
