Aerosmith recently extended its “Deuces Are Wild” residence in Las Vegas with 15 more dates in early 2020 due to an “extraordinary demand.”
The band has been playing without drummer Joey Kramer, who is recovering after spraining his ankle during rehearsal. To replace it is Kramer’s battery technician, John Douglas.
Boston’s legendary rockers have not released a new studio album since “Music From Another Dimension” in 2012! That effort was launched when, according to reports, the Aerosmith label, Columbia Records, was undergoing a change of leadership, and ended up becoming a commercial disappointment.
