AEROSMITH Unveil Special Ticket Packages For KISS Tour

Live Daily reports that AEROSMITH are offering members of their fan club — Aero Force One — a choice of three premium ticketing packages for the band's upcoming co-headlining tour with KISS, the most extravagant of which costs $595. That price will get the buyer early entry into the venue, backstage access to a pre-show VIP party where one can "experience first-hand the pre-show mayhem that typically only crew and artists experience," and a "guaranteed seat in the first five rows," according to a band announcement. The packages also "often include chances to meet the band and crew."

AEROSMITH are currently at work on a blues album, due later in the year through Columbia Records. Bassist Tom Hamilton talked about the upcoming tour and the work-in-progress album in a recent message posted at the group's web site.

"We've been learning old blues songs," he said. "Some of the recordings we're schoolin' on are from the thirties and forties so it's hard to hear everything in a lot of detail but there's enough for us to eat up and try to spit back. At any rate we're putting our spin on them and making them ready to be on an AEROSMITH record. We've also been working on originals and we have a few of them cookin' pretty good."

Regarding how the tour with KISS came about, Hamilton said that it's "funny how things work out. We used to play with them in the seventies but both bands made it pretty big and we went our separate ways. Those guys have always been in a world of their own so it never occurred to us — until recently — that we would be a good match to tour together. The more we thought about it the more we realized it would be a blast to try it out."
