Aerosmith add second show at the TD Garden
Due to overwhelming demand, Aerosmith have added a second homecoming show in Boston as part of their “Global Warming” summer tour with special guests Cheap Trick. Following the band’s sold-out show at the TD Garden on July 17, the “Bad Boys of Boston” will return to the Causeway Street for another show on Thursday, July 19. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $49.50 to $149.50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
As previously reported, fans will most likely hear some long-awaited new material along with plenty of old classics in concert. Aerosmith have been working on their 15th studio album for several years now and last month, confirmed they plan to release the Jack Douglas-produced album sometime this summer to coincide with the tour. It will mark the band’s first studio release since 2004′s Honkin’ on Bobo and first of all original material since 2001′s Just Push Play.
“This tour, in addition to a couple songs we know we’re going to play from the new record, we want to bring out songs we just haven’t played for years,” said guitarist Joe Perry in a recent interview with Billboard. “We’ll be playing some of those — songs that were staples in the sets back in the old days that will be new songs to a lot of people if they don’t know the albums.”
