Performer Info

Aerosmith: Commonly considered the greatest American rock band of all time, Aerosmith has been producing anthemic singles and playing insanely energetic tour dates since 1970. If not the greatest American rock band, Aerosmith is undoubtedly the best-selling, with over 150 million albums sold worldwide and four Grammy Awards won. Aerosmith is still going strong after 41 years, with a new album due to release this year and numerous Japanese and South American tour dates in 2011.

While Aerosmith experienced fair success with the self-titled debut album and Get Your Wings, it was Toys in the Attic in 1975 that launched the band into international stardom. It featured the hit singles "Sweet Emotion" and "Walk This Way" and was followed by tour dates that would become a staple for music lovers. Aerosmith's next album, Rocks, experienced similar success, but Joe Perry and Brad Whitford soon quit the band for five years before returning. Beginning in 1987, Aerosmith made a comeback with albums like Permanent Vacation and Pump.

Aerosmith has maintained their status as rock legends well into 2011, supported by multi-platinum albums and sold-out tour dates. Fans are ecstatic over the band's upcoming, unnamed album after years waiting patiently. Fans in Japan and South America will only have to wait a little longer for tour dates in 2011, as Aerosmith begins its concert schedule on October 22. After traveling through Latin America, Aerosmith will head to Japan on November 22 before ending their 2011 tour dates on December 10.

Slash tour dates are scheduled nationally and have the acclaimed guitarist traversing the country. Don't miss a date on the Slash concert schedule 2011.

For Slash, the music industry is the family business. His mother was a costume designer for David Bowie and his father was an artist who designed cover art for the likes of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. The native Londoner moved to Los Angeles for his mother's career and was dubbed "Slash" by family friend and actor, Seymour Cassel. Slash joined his first band, Road Crew, in 1981 with childhood friend and and future GNR bandmate Steven Adler. They disbanded a year later and Slash formed Hollywood Rose with Axl Rose the following year. After the dissolution of that group, Slash re-teamed with Axl and Adler to form what would become one of the biggest hard-rock acts in music history. Guns N' Roses went on to sell over 100 million records with their debut album selling nearly 30 million copies on its own! Slash toured with the band throughout the early 90's before departing in 1996.

Slash formed a side project, Slash's Snakepit, in 1994 which went on to release two albums before disbanding at the turn of the millennium. Slash also became a prolific studio musician contributing to Michael Jackson's Danger and the Yardbirds' Birdland albums to name a few. In 2002, Slash joined rock supergroup, Velvet Revolver, which featured former Stone Temple Pilot's frontman Scott Weiland. The group marked a revival of Slash's mainstream career and their debut album was a #1 hit on the Billboard 200. Velvet Revolver released their sophomore album in 2007 and announced that they would be disbanding following their tour. Following the dissolution of the band, Slash decided to go solo.

In 2008, Slash released his debut album Slash which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200. In the style of guitar god Santana, the album featured the vocals of several high profile performers including Dave Grohl, Chris Cornell, Fergie, and Ozzy Osbourne. To promote the album, Slash tour dates were scheduled along a solo headlining tour throughout 2010 and 2011. The Slash World Tour has taken the guitarist across the world and when all is said and done, he will have played nearly 140 shows. Slash tour dates are scheduled through July, 2011. Don't miss a date on this guitar prodigy's first solo tour! Use Eventful as your source for Slash tour dates and concert schedule information.
