Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer started a three-day takeover for Karlson & McKenzie’s morning show program on Boston’s WZLX this morning, and mentioned that Aerosmith will be going on tour next year.
Gary Cherone and Pat Badger of Extreme called in to the show, and Kramer asked what the guys had planned for next year.
Cherone said, “We’re recording some stuff and we’re hoping to get something out for next year, and do a full-fledged tour.”
To which Kramer replied, “I’m keeping you guys in mind, because we’re [Aerosmith] going out to do a world tour. I think it would be a good combo and it might work,” Kramer added. “I’m going to make the suggestion.” That suggestion may go over well with at least one of his bandmates: Steven Tyler has performed Extreme’s “More Than Words” with their guitarist Nuno Bettencourt at some of his solo appearances (for instance: this one).
Kramer went on to confirm more details about Aerosmith’s future schedule. “There’s some plans in the works,” he said about the world tour. “We’re going to South America this October, and then we’ll be back and we’re taking some time off, and then after that we’re thinking about embarking on a world tour. [The] world tour will take us probably the better part of 2 1/2 years.”
If this is farewell, at least we’ll have a long time to say goodbye.
