Aerosmith--Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry
(lead guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums)--are a living piece of American music history, having sold more than 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four Grammys, eight American Music
Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music
Awards among many other honors. Proving that they can cross genre-boundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train
Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC's "Walk This Way." This year, the legacy continues with the band launching their Las Vegas
residency, Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild, beginning Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM resort.
Aerosmith's Las Vegas
residency, promoted by Live Nation and MGM Resorts International, will bring you face to face with America's Greatest Rock 'N' Roll band in one of the most immersive, state-of-the art audio and video technology experiences in Las Vegas. And in 2020, they will celebrate a milestone, their 50th Anniversary as a band.
In addition to their musical legacy, band members have also used their platform to give back. For instance, in November 2015, Steven Tyler
founded his philanthropic initiative Janie's Fund (www.JaniesFund.org), in partnership with Youth Villages, to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect. He was honored for this work in 2016 when the United Nation's named him the recipient of Humanitarian Award. He is also deeply involved in the fight to protect the rights of established and emerging songwriters as a member of the GRAMMY Creators' Alliance, and a tireless advocate for raising awareness of addiction issues and recovery solutions. More at StevenTyler.com. This Sunday, Feb. 10, the members of Aerosmith
will perform together at the Janie's Fund GRAMMY viewing party in support of the organization. Tickets are still available at (www.JaniesFund.org),
With scores of multi-platinum albums, a new residency and their 50th Anniversary on the horizon, Aerosmith
continues to inspire generations to "Get their Wings", "Get a Grip and "Just Push Play." It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time.
