Aerosmith Announces 'Deuces Are Wild' Vegas Residency
Aerosmith will celebrate 50 years as a band with a Las Vegas residency that they say will be unlike anything they've done.
Frontman Steven Tyler announced Wednesday morning that Aerosmith's Deuces Are Wild will begin April 6, 2019, at Park Theater at Park MGM.
Currently, the band has 18 dates in April, June and July booked for the residency.
“We want to do a show that still has Aerosmith and all the guts of Aerosmith, but is something you would never see before,” said guitarist Joe Perry, before the band played two songs – “Love in an Elevator” and “Sweet Emotion” – on Today.
Public on-sale begins Aug. 24, at 10 a.m. For all the dates and info, go here.
Drummer Joey Kramer added that the band is going all out to celebrate its Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legacy.
“[The residency celebrates] the history behind all our 50 years of being together," Kramer said. "As soon as you walk into the Park Theater, it's going to be all Aerosmith."
The band members have all been careful to qualify their remarks on the residency plans with words like, "genuine" and "honest," as if to assure fans that they aren't jumping the shark, opting for a typical Las Vegas style over substance spectacle.
"We're gonna keep it raw, we're gonna keep it who we are," added Tyler. "...[It's] going to be beautiful and rocked out, and we're going to have special effects that we've never used before."
Perry emphasized in an interview last week that the band has been completely hands-on when it comes to planning the show. So fans can be sure, whatever Deuces Are Wild looks like, it'll be just how Aerosmith wants it.
