When Steven Tyler called into The Howard Stern Show earlier this month to talk about upcoming music plans, the disc jockey–and fans–were shocked to learn that he and his Aerosmith bandmates are planning a farewell tour for the near future.

Said Tyler, “I love this band, I really do, and I want to squash every thought that anybody might have about this … We’re doing a farewell tour, but only because it’s time. We’ve never done that.”

Tyler continued to say that unlike other bands like the Who and Kiss, when Aerosmith does embark on said tour, it will actually be a true goodbye. While no dates are yet set in stone, he said it will likely happen next year.

You can catch Tyler this summer when he sets off on tour to promote his new solo country album, We’re All Somebody from Somewhere. Stay tuned for more Aerosmith tour updates as they are revealed.
