Despite recent problems between Aerosmith and their frontman Steven Tyler, the band announced that it would be headlining U.K.’s Download Festival in June 2010.
The band also will play the Sweden Rock Festival on June 10, and a U.K. spokeswoman for the band told Billboard.com that other European dates will be announced shortly.
On his twitter account, guitarist Joe Perry:
We are looking forward to crossing the big pond with Aerosmith this summer for some rockin’ festivals
Drummer Joey Kramer also tweeted
Aerosmith is back!
Classic Rock magazine reported that Download Festival promoter Andy Copping booked Aerosmith on the condition that the band would only be fronted by Tyler. “There’s no Aerosmith without Steven Tyler,” Copping said. “There’s no point in entertaining anything other than [with] Steven Tyler.”
