Aerosmith Heading Into "Semi-Tour" Mode According to Joe Perry

Ultimate Classic Rock caught up with guitarist Joe Perry on January 21st in Anaheim, California where he shed light on the band's upcoming "Aero-Vederci Baby" tour, explaining, "The feeling is, right now is gonna be in semi-tour mode for the next few years. We’ll be taking time off here and there, but we really want to play some of the places that we’ve maybe played once before, maybe never before. Kind of go around and hit all the spots you can."

Perry went on to reveal: "We’re much closer to the end than the beginning. I’m not going to say this is -- after the U.S. tour that we’ll never play the States again. I’m not going to say that. I feel like, at this point, every show could be the last show. You just don’t know. I always have this attitude, it’s gotta be as good as it can be that day. That said, we don’t have a day planned where we say ‘Okay, this is the last show.’ You can’t picture that. On the other hand, I know there will be a last show just like there’s a one last time for everything in life."

Although Perry is considering a new album with Hollywood Vampires featuring Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp, a new Aerosmith collection remains up in the air: "I've been talking to Steven (Tyler) a little bit about going into the studio and maybe even just getting one or two new songs. But I also know we’re going to be looking at some of the archives and pulling out some of the more outtake things and some live stuff -- stuff we’ve never recorded. So, I don’t know. I’d like to think we’d get at least one more going into the studio."
