Rock icons Aerosmith have announced their farewell ‘Peace Out’ tour, with performances set for venues across the US and Canada.

The band will be accompanied on their final tour by fellow rock band, The Black Crowes.

Aerosmith said in a joint statement: “It’s not goodbye, it’s peace out! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.”

The 40-date tour will be produced by Live Nation, and will begin in Philadelphia on September 2, with further stops including the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, New York’s Madison Square Garden, Austin’s Moody Center, Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena, Chicago’s United Center and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena among many more.

The tour will then wrap up at Montreal’s Benn Centre on January 26 next year. There will also be a stop in Boston for a hometown show on New Year’s Eve.

Tickets will go on general sale from May 5 through Live Nation-owned Ticketmaster.

The tour will also offer a range of different VIP packages and experiences, which can include a premium reserved ticket, a personal photo opportunity with band members, limited edition merchandise and more.

Drummer Joey Kramer will not be joining the farewell tour, with the band saying: “While Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably made the decision to sit out the currently scheduled touring dates to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”

The band most recently wrapped up their Las Vegas residency, ‘Aerosmith: Deuces are Wild’ at Dolby Live at Park MGM.

Leading up to their residency, Aerosmith also played a hometown gig at Boston’s Fenway Park, which attracted 38,700 fans – the most tickets sold to date for a show at the venue.
