Finally, there is some good news about Aerosmith as well as some more not so good news.
After canceling seven concerts due to vocalist Steven Tyler’s leg injury sustained while performing at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on June 28, the Aerosmith/ZZ Top tour resumed on July 15 at Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA.
However, while guitarist Brad Whitfield returned to the stage after recovering from surgery, bassist Tom Hamilton will miss some shows as he recuperates from non-invasive surgery.
Hamilton’s replacement will be David Hull, who played in the Joe Perry Project and who sat in for Hamilton on the 2006 Aersomith tour. Joe Perry is the lead guitarist in Aerosmith.
The seven canceled dates have not been rescheduled yet. Fans can hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled show or get refunds at the point of purchase. The concerts were: July 1 – Cincinnati, OH, Riverbend Music Center; July 3 – Hershey, PA, Hersheypark Stadium; July 5; Virginia Beach, VA, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre; July 7 – Raleigh, NC, Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek; July 9 – Charlotte, NC, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre; July 11 – Tampa, FL , Ford Amphitheatre; and July 13 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Bank Atlantic Center.
