AEROSMITH, MÖTLEY CRÜE: First U.S. Date Announced

Live Nation, the concert promotion company recently spun-off by radio giant Clear Channel, has confirmed via its web site that AEROSMITH and MÖTLEY CRÜE will be teaming up for a U.S. tour this fall. So far, only one date has been released: Saturday, September 23 at the Tweeter Center at the Waterfront in Camden, New Jersey. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m. More dates will be announced soon.

The first rumblings of a possible AEROSMITH / MÖTLEY CRÜE pairing were heard in early January when CRÜE frontman Vince Neil revealed during an appearance on the "Opie and Anthony" show on XM Satellite Radio that the two bands would be hooking for a trek later in the year.

AEROSMITH are currently recording their new album with producer Steve Lillywhite, who has previously worked with U2 and MORRISSEY. The band were forced to cancel a bunch of shows on their spring tour after singer Steven Tyler suffered a broken blood vessel in his voice box.

MÖTLEY CRÜE are believed to have commenced the songwriting/demoing process for their new studio album with producer Bob Rock, who previously worked with CRÜE on their "Dr. Feelgood" and self-titled albums, as well as the three new tracks that appeared on CRÜE's two-CD "greatest hits" collection, "Red, White & Crüe" (which came out in February 2005). An early 2007 release is expected.
