Aerosmith Announce Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas Residency
(hennemusic) Aerosmith has officially announced details for a spring 2019 Las Vegas residency during their August 15th appearance on NBC-TV's The Today Show.
"We decided to do Vegas," said Steven Tyler on the morning broadcast from New York's Rockefeller Center. "Viva La Aerosmith." Guitarist Joe Peery - who broke the news of the series during a recent interview on SiriusXM's The Beatles Channel - added, "We wanted to bring in there that we really can't do on the road on a regular tour. So we want to bring a show that still has Aerosmith and all the guts of Aerosmith but has a whole other element to it that we've never been able to do before."
Following the Today Show announcement, Aerosmith rocked a pair of classic hits on the program: 1989's "Love In An Elevator" and 1975's "Sweet Emotion."
"Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild" will see the Boston band perform at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM resort in Las Vegas; the 18-date series will begin Saturday, April 6, 2019.
The group have teamed up with producer Giles Martin - known for creating the soundscape for "The Beatles Love" by Cirque du Soleil show - for what is being billed as "one of the most immersive, state-of-the art audio and video technology experiences in Las Vegas," while the show will feature never-seen-before visuals and audio from Aerosmith recording sessions.
In addition, the group promises "the world's first THX Certified live performance presented in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound" due to a partnership with THX and L-Acoustics for their first-ever residency. Watch video from the TV appearance here.
