Aerosmith Planning To Launch New Tour

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry reveals in a recent interview that the band are planning to hit the road this summer, but the group's plans for future music remain up in the air. When asked by Guitar International if he is planning a new solo album or an Aerosmith album next, Perry responded, "I'm really not sure, I feel that we just finished the last Aerosmith CD and I learned a lot about making that record as well as what our hard core fans are looking for. "I have about six songs for a solo project, as I'm always writing and working on new stuff. Whether it's a solo thing or an Aerosmith thing I'm not sure as we haven't talked about specifics. "The industry and audience have changed so much, plus Steven is doing a solo CD this spring. Sometimes I wonder if it worth doing an album any more or go more in the direction of this EP. We put it together in two and a half weeks; put it up online for people to buy the songs they like or all four. I was thinking why not put out a song at a time and when you get a bunch together, release them as a package. "We've certainly talked about the different options. From talking with the fans at the book signings, they were handing me vinyl instead of CDs to sign. Maybe going back and do vinyl and also release the songs online. We are wide open now and we'll decide when we start thinking about putting out new music. I know we are going back on the road this summer, so I'm not sure when we will have the time or be able to make time to get back into the studio. I know we plan on it, I just don't know when."

Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest and Motorhead Monsters Tour Coming

Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest and Motorhead are reportedly teaming up to launch the Monsters Tour, according to a South American production company. There has already been one show announced for April 30 at the Zequinha Stadium in Porto Alegre, Brazil but the production company Hits Entretenimento says that show is only the first stop in the Monsters Tour, according to Pollstar. The production company made a Facebook post announcing the show and showing a photo of Ozzy in a "shhh" pose (holding his index finger to his lips.) There is no word when additional dates will be announced or the territory (or territories) that the tour is expected to cover.

Fleetwood Mac Have Begun Their 'Last Act'

(TeamRock Radio) Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsay Buckingham says that the band's reunion tour and upcoming album with Christine McVie will be a "beautiful way to wrap up this last act." She officially rejoined this year after retiring in 1998, and they're currently touring the world under the banner On With The Show. But Buckingham, who admits to initial doubts over her return, has given his strongest hint yet that Mac are considering winding down - and he's putting solo plans on hold until the completion of their first record since 2003. He tells PBS: "If you want to think of this as the beginning of the last act, that's how it feels. Christine really fills the gap of the polarity that might exist otherwise, and helps things breathe. "We got this call from Christine saying she wanted to come back. We were in the middle of touring, the four of us. My initial reaction was, 'Okay - we have to take this with baby steps.' The want to return doesn't mean you can repeat history; it doesn't mean all the tools, all the reference points are still there for it all to work."

AC/DC and U2 To Rock The Grammy Awards?

A report surfaced on Monday that suggested that AC/DC, U2 and Madonna have all signed on to perform during the 57th annual Grammy Awards on February 8th. There are several media outlets that report music industry site Hits Double Daily reported in their "rumor mill" section on Monday that the three artists have been booked for the awards show that will be taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS. However, as of Monday night that report could not be found on the HDD website. The article reportedly said, "Nothing official yet, but the word from sources in inside the Recording Academy is that AC/DC, Madonna and U2 have been booked to perform on the Grammys," according to Trendio. Another report from Brave Words published this quote from the HDD report, "Each December, executive producer Ken Ehrlich makes an all-out effort to confirm a handful of performers for the show prior to the holiday break, during which it's difficult to get hold of pretty much anyone in a position of authority, and these three perennial draws are precisely the kind of act Ehrlich would typically approach."
