Aerosmith, the rock band, is set to return to the Bay Area for their Peace Out farewell tour after an unforeseen hiccup last year when lead singer Steven Tyler suffered a vocal injury, according to SF Chronicle. The group boasts of a catalogue of hits including "Dream On" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," will hit the stage at Chase Center in San Francisco on Nov. 30 and add a show at SAP Center at San Jose on Dec. 4.

The band's long-awaited farewell trek had an explosive start, with a four-hour set in Philadelphia before Tyler's injury forced them to hit the brakes. Now, with new dates, fans can see these rock legends. Yet again, fans who previously purchased tickets can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their investments are still valid, and those looking to score a seat for this historical goodbye should mark their calendars for April 12, when tickets go on sale as per the band's official website. The tour will also feature The Black Crowes, and a special performance from Teddy Swims at the tour's start in Pittsburgh.

While drummer Joey Kramer, a founding member, is taking leave to focus on his family and health, the band reassures that his "unmistakable and legendary presence" will be sorely missed. This shift in the lineup came after some legal drama in 2020 when Kramer sued the band for performing without him at the Grammys during his recovery from a health issue.

Aerosmith has had to contend with legal battles offstage, most notably a dismissed lawsuit in New York accusing Tyler of assaulting a model in the 1970s, and still, another lawsuit hangs over Tyler in California, where he is accused of abusing a 16-year-old girl during the same era, the SF Chronicle reports.
