Aerosmith to Kick Off Football Hall of Fame Celebrations With Concert
Dates for Aerosmith's 2015 tour continue to trickle out, with stops now confirmed for Santa Barbara, Calif., in July, and a special show a month later at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
A smattering of other concerts in Evansville, Ind., and Las Vegas, among others, were announced last month, but no other dates have been confirmed until today. The band's up-to-date itinerary is below.
Their stop at the Pro Football Hall of Fame will mark the first ever Concert for Legends, which will take place before the enshrinement ceremonies for the hall's class of 2015. The band will perform at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, on the same field where the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers meet to officially kick off the new NFL season.
"When we started out, jocks did not hang out with long-haired musicians longer than it took to beat them up," joked Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton -- who, like the rest of the Boston-based band, is a New England Patriots fan -- in a press release announcing the concert. "Finally, we have a meeting of the minds based on mutual respect. It’ll be a great honor to be there that night."
The Hall of Fame game is already sold out. Concert tickets -- priced from $35 to $225 -- go on sale March 21 at 10AM ET via Ticketmaster. Maybe by then we'll know more about what Aerosmith have planned for the rest of 2015.
