Aerosmith ain't messing around.
America's greatest rock band delivered absolutely killer sets on the first leg of their triumphant, sold-out The Global Warming Tour this past summer, with critics dropping comments like (we kid you not, see below) "stunning.jaw-dropping.impassioned intensity.seamless swagger...epic rock moments.a wonder to behold.Aerosmith always managed to reinvent itself for the masses without losing its inherent musicality ... Make no mistake, Aerosmith remains king."
They ain't done yet. More prisoners will be taken when Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) return for the second leg of The Global Warming Tour launching November 8. The month-long, 14-city arena tour will take the band to New York City (Madison Square Garden), Los Angeles (Staples Center) and Las Vegas (MGM Grand Garden Arena), among other cities.
They're fully armed with career-defining hits and blazing songs from their new album MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION, out November 6 on Columbia Records. They're the only band of their stature with all-original members and who are playing better than ever before.
The Live Nation-produced tour will include support act Cheap Trick.

MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION -- recently chosen by PEOPLE magazine (9-17-12) as one of "5 Must Have Albums For Fall"--marks Aerosmith's 15th studio album and their first studio album of all-new material in 11 years. There has been a witch's brew boiling for 10 years, and they're about to blow the cover off. The album was recorded in Los Angeles and at the band's studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tylerand Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen.
The album abounds with one highlight after another, including "Out Go The Lights," "Oh Yeah,""Luv XXX," "We All Fall Down,""Street Jesus" and"Can't Stop Loving You," on which Tyler duetswith Carrie Underwood. The album also includes "Freedom Fighter" which features Johnny Depp on backing vocals. The album's first two singles have been released simultaneously to radio and are now lighting up the airwaves: "What Could Have Been Love" is now impacting at Hot AC and "Lover A Lot" at Rock, Active Rock, and Classic Rock.

CRITICAL QUOTES FROM THE FIRST LEG (JULY/AUGUST 2012) OF THE GLOBAL WARMING TOUR
"For the singer Steven Tyler, a microphone stand is a maypole, a hobbyhorse, a dance partner, a weapon and an all-purpose Freudian symbol; his outfit also included a studded codpiece. For the guitarist Joe Perry, his longtime partner in Aerosmith's production and songwriting, a mere trill or squiggle in a solo can set off arenawide squeals of joy, especially when he delivers it rearing back as if he were aiming at the balconies, with a fan blowing through his white-streaked hair...[Tyler is]...an unstoppable vocalist who was belting, howling, letting loose falsetto whoops or barking rhymes at proto-hip-hop speed."
--Jon Pareles, NEW YORK TIMES, July 2, 2012
".the quintet displayed its limberness, both musically and physically, with a set that proved that they simply don't make rock stars the way they used to.Tyler is a rip-roaring, butt-shaking, sexy-skanky, wake-the-dead-yowling, rock star supreme."
--Melissa Ruggieri, ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION, July 27, 2012
"Aerosmith always managed to reinvent itself for the masses without losing its inherent musicality...the band stayed true to its creative forces. That's why 42 years after its inception, Aerosmith still sells out arenas."
--Mario Tarradell, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, July 29, 2012
".seamless swagger.They haven't sounded so fierce in years...epic rock moments..."
--David Hall, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, August 7, 2012
"Perry remains one of rock's great guitarists. He shredded magnificently all night, and his lap steel playing on 'Rag Doll' was elegantly understated. He and Brad Whitford traded licks on 'Cryin' that brought the house down, aided in no small part by Tyler's harmonica playing and his scarifying, howling vocals.The underappreciated rhythm section of Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton anchored the band, keeping the chaos under control. Hamilton's a monster bassist."
--Bill Brotherton, BOSTON HERALD, July 18, 2012
"Not only was he in fine voice, Tyler hasn't been this delicious sleazy in years.On 'Back in the Saddle,' the audience was treated to the seemingly ageless combination of Tyler's soaring high notes and Perry's snarling guitar licks. While Tyler and Perry are the equivalent to the Rolling Stones' Jagger and Keith Richards, like the Stones, Aerosmith has a tight rhythm section in the capable hands of guitarist Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton and drummer Joey Kramer."
--Craig S. Semon, TELEGRAM & GAZETTE (Worcester, MA), July 18, 2012
"...'Legendary Child' starts by referencing the band's past, but extends into an intricate arrangement that might suggest latter-day Beatles with a touch of T-Rex, but ends with some truly marvelous soaring guitars."
--Jay Miller, PATRIOT LEDGER (Quincy, MA), July 18, 2012
".stunning.Re-energized, rejuvenated and playing with passion." --John J. Moser, THE MORNING CALL (Allentown, PA), July 22, 2012
".with stellar, jaw-dropping performance."
--Dustin Schoof, THE EXPRESS-TIMES (Lehigh Valley, PA), July 22, 2012
