AEROSMITH Likes Touring With Big Bands

United Press International reports that Boston rockers AEROSMITH find inspiration these days by touring with other big names.

The group has shared bills in recent years with KID ROCK, KISS and LENNY KRAVITZ and began a 33-show run with MÖTLEY CRÜE Tuesday (Sept. 5) in Columbus, Ohio.

"It keeps your edge," guitarist Joe Perry says of having another multi-platinum act on the shows. "It doesn't mean you go out and try to blow the other guys off the stage, but I think there's a friendly competition to go out there and make yourself remembered with the audience.

"So that's definitely an added attraction for everybody."

AEROSMITH will release a greatest hits collection Oct. 10. "Devil's Got a New Disguise" also features two brand new songs. A new album should follow in 2007.

Bassist Tom Hamilton will sit out part of the tour while he recovers from radiation treatment for throat cancer.
