Joe Perry, the legendary guitarist, co-founding member, principal songwriter and co-producer of Aerosmith, has just confirmed more shows in support of his 2018 SWEETZERLAND MANIFESTO (via his Roman Records imprint, distributed worldwide by AMPED Distribution) solo album. The headlining dates kick off November 30 in Iowa and include stops in New York, Detroit, Philadelphia and more before wrapping up with three Los Angeles-area shows. These performances follow gigs in April where PERRY debuted his new touring band featuring his Aerosmith bandmate Brad Whitford and Gary Cherone of Extreme taking on the lead vocals.
Along with choice cuts from his catalog of solo records, JOE will be performing rarely played Aerosmith classics from the band’s early records including “Toys In The Attic,” “Get Your Wings,” and “Rocks,” among others. SWEETZERLAND MANIFESTO marks Joe’s sixth solo album and is comprised of 10 new tracks all written or co-written by JOE (many with the album’s guest vocalists), except for a cover of “Eve Of Destruction” with JOE on lead vocals and Johnny Depp on drums. The album features guest appearances from a long list of Joe’s friends, colleagues and rock and roll icons. Highlights include “Aye, Aye, Aye,” which Joe co-wrote with the track’s vocalist Robin Zander, and three collaborations with David Johansen, who sings “I Wanna Roll,” “Haberdasher Blues,” and “I’m Going Crazy,” plus as many co-writes with Terry Reid whose lead vocals light up “I’ll Do Happiness” (with Zak Starkey on drums), “Sick & Tired” and “Won’t Let Me Go.” A few days before the album’s January release, Joe and his all-star band crushed it at a two-hour plus set at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
