Aerosmith‘s next tour might be the beginning of the end.

The band has announced a run of European dates for the spring and summer of 2017 — a series of shows they’ve dubbed “Aero-Vederci Baby!” and are billing as their “farewell” tour. The news comes several months after singer Steven Tyler publicly suggested that it was “time” for the group to start thinking about getting off the road — although Tyler’s longtime foil and creative sparring partner, guitarist Joe Perry, seemed to disagree.

“It’s one of many things we’ve talked about as a band, but I don’t know if it’s the end,” Perry shrugged in response. “There are still a lot of places we haven’t played yet that we want to play. More to follow – let’s just put it that way.”

It’s worth noting that in the press release announcing the “Aero-Vederci Baby!” dates, the word “farewell” is always surrounded in quotes, and neither Perry nor Tyler seemed to be in a hurry to say goodbye in their quotes for the tour.

“It’s been three years since we have been on tour in Europe, and I can speak for my brothers that we can’t wait to get over there and take it up a few notches,” said Perry. “Last tour in South America, we were running on all cylinders, and I can see no reason to let up now.”

“Aerosmith just got done ripping through South America like true ambassadors of rock,” added Tyler. “The band is unstoppable right now and in Europe, we’re going to keep doing what we do best … Let the Music Do the Talking … Living on the Edge, and living to rock another day.”

When Tyler made his comments about a farewell tour, he quipped that it would last “probably forever” — so there’s every reason to believe Aerosmith will be bidding fans adieu for quite awhile. Take a look at the complete list of currently scheduled dates below, and keep an eye on the band’s official site for ticketing information starting Nov. 18.

Copenhagen or Munich would be the most realistic for me, of the dates announced, but it sure would be nice if they'd announce something here in Greece.

I will be going to see them in Clisson in France, makes sense as I am going to Hellfest, I am around for Download but do not want to pay out £200 just to see them, they would have to add some serious bands that I either love or haven't seen to make me do both Download and Hellfest and Hellfest is a better festival for sure.

It will be good to see them again and if it's for the last time I will be sad to see them go.

I bid farewell to Aero looooong ago.

Nine Lives was the last time they did anything interesting.

Steven Tyler is a cartoon of himself.

And this is coming from someone who's seen them 13 times, and has a Mama Kin tattoo.
