Dude, looks like a delay: Aerosmith postpones this year’s planned European tour to 2022


Aerosmith has joined many other major music stars whose 2021 tour plans have been pushed back for another year because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The band’s European tour, which already had been postponed from 2020 to this year, now is scheduled to kick off in June 2022…”[d]ue to current conditions and for the safety of our fans.”

The trek currently features 12 dates, spanning from a June 1 show in Lisbon, Portugal, through a July 13 concert tin Krakow, Poland.

All tickets purchased for the 2021 concerts will be valid for the rescheduled shows. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers are asking fans with tickets to “stay tuned for more information regarding the new dates or [to] contact your point of purchase.”

Aerosmith also has tentative plans to play a special 50th anniversary hometown show this September 14 at Fenway Park in Boston, but the event may also be affected by the pandemic.

In other news, longtime Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whtiford is celebrating his 69th birthday today. Whitford joined the band in 1971, a year after its formation, replacing Ray Tabano. Brad has played with Aerosmith ever since, with the exception of a three-year hiatus he took, from 1981 to 1984.
