Steven Tyler has just announced a string of summer solo shows for what he’s calling the Out on a Limb Tour.
The limited-run 19-city tour of intimate venues will find Steven Tyler once again backed by his Nashville-based band Loving Mary, and sharing stories from his long and storied career.
Most of these venues are much smaller and nicer than what Aerosmith’s rowdy show normally brings, so it will be a different atmosphere for him and his fans.
“STEVEN TYLER…OUT ON A LIMB” brings the legendary frontman to a series of intimate venues for a once-in-a-lifetime evening with rock royalty. Backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary, the GRAMMY® Award-winning Tyler gets up-close-and-personal like never before as he shares his real-life heartaches, trials, and tribulations from his piano upbringing to worldwide fame and life with his band. In a career-spanning musical journey, the industry Icon will recount in-depth stories of his life from his musical ancestors in Calabria, Italy all the way to Route 440 and Nashville’s country music. Directed by award-winning director, Brett Ratner, the critically-acclaimed intimate concert performance “STEVEN TYLER…OUT ON A LIMB” first premiered at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall as a benefit for the legendary frontman’s philanthropic initiative, Janie’s Fund.,” reads the concert announcement.
The idea stems from an acoustic performance he did last fall as part of PBS’ Front and Center series, with an emphasis squarely on the fans.
About the shows, Steven Tyler says
“What would I not pay to go see (Paul) McCartney, but instead of playing with whoever he’s with now, actually do (a show) where he tells you what he was thinking when he wrote Yesterday?” says Tyler, 68. “That’s what I’m doing. I figured I’d talk about Sweet Emotion and Dream On and where I was when I wrote it, and Seasons of Wither and how I played it.”
In the handful of solo shows he’s played this year, he’s sprinkled in a solid dose of Aerosmith hits, including Cryin’, Sweet Emotion, Livin’ on the Edge, Janie’s Got a Gun and I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.
In addition, Tyler will be playing the first two singles from his forthcoming solo country album, “If Love Is Your Name” and “Red, White and You”
He recently debuted a third song, “Only Heaven” on Monday night during a benefit for Janie’s Fund at New York’s Lincoln Center.
