If you have been paying attention at all, you already know iconic rockers Aerosmith have announced their farewell tour. In case you have not, we will recap it.
In an announcement about the tour, the band said it is calling it quits on road dates after a more than five-decade career. They kept it simple and unsentimental by saying, “It’s not goodbye, it’s peace out! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.”
With opening act The Black Crowes, the trek stops at the United Center in Chicago on Sept. 15, Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Sept. 18, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland on Sept. 21, and Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Oct. 29.
All IN festival set to jam
The All IN Music & Arts Festival returns to Indiana State Fairgrounds on Sept. 9-10.
Headlining the festival will be Phish frontman Trey Anastasio & Classic Tab, joined by Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Greensky Bluegrass, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Andy Frasco & The U.N., and The Main Squeeze.
A special Dreamset featuring Umphrey’s McGee with Jason Bonham celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin is slated to take place as well as a Dreamset of music from The Beatles featuring artists to be announced.
Still a working class dog
At 73 years old, Rick Springfield is still having fun and has announced a new summer tour.
After a successful tour with Men at Work and John Waite last year, the I Want My ’80s tour will see Springfield joined by The Hooters, Paul Young, and Tommy Tutone.
You can catch the tour when it rolls into TCU Amphitheater in Indianapolis on Aug. 5 and Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre near Detroit the following night.
In case you weren’t sure, he is excited.
“What more could you ask for!” Springfield said in a press release. “Besides, you know, world peace, freedom from hunger and healing the earth, of course. Admittedly, they are the bigger stars, but come along anyway. We will rock you and maybe save the world as a by-product.”
