Aerosmith has announced plans for a new Las Vegas residency.
The Crazy hitmakers will be the first band to play at Park MGM’s Dolby Live when their Deuces Are Wild concert series kicks off on 17 June, and they will perform a total of 24 shows across the latter half of 2022, with the residency scheduled to end on 11 December.
‘Get ready to walk this way to Vegas,’ wrote frontman Steven Tyler on Twitter. Walk This Way is the name of their hit 1975 song.

Members of the group’s ‘Aero Force One’ fan club can access a presale on Thursday , a week ahead of general sale.
The announcement comes after the band made the decision to cancel their delayed UK and European tour – which had already been postponed twice – due to the ‘continued presence of COVID restrictions and other issues’, and to safeguard their fans and crew.

Announcing the cancellation of the shows, which were due to take place in June and July, the ‘Sweet Emotion’ rockers said in a statement: ‘It is with deep regret we must announce that our European Tour, scheduled to take place in June and July 2022, has been canceled.
‘We have continued to monitor the ongoing COVID situation, and with the related uncertainty around travel logistics and the continued presence of COVID restrictions and other issues, it has become clear that it will not be possible to go ahead with our summer shows in the region.
‘The health, safety and well-being of our fans is our number one priority.
‘We will be back to rock out with everyone and we hope to have some exciting news to announce soon.’
The band had previously launched a Las Vegas residency in 2019, performing until February 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic called a halt to live music.
