Aerosmith, Kid Rock, and Run D.M.C. Join Forces for Summer Tour

Aerosmith and Run D.M.C. started the rap/rock experiment back in the day, so it seems fitting that they bring along a modern day rock star that was undoubtedly influenced by their music when they hit the road this summer. Kid Rock, or as we like to call him, Mr. Pam Anderson, will be onboard with the two legends of rock and rap and they rifle through North America on a 38-stop tour. The trek comes in support of Aerosmithís two-disc greatest hits collection, O, Yeah! ñ Ultimate Aerosmith Hits, which is scheduled for release on July 2. According to MTV, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry will wear a knee brace to battle, as he is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery he underwent to repair a bum ACL. In true rock star fashion, the axe-man received his injury from jumping off a speaker stack 15 years ago and re-injured it last year while touring for Just Push Play. Maybe itís time we get his ass a walker. The Aerosmith, Run D.M.C., Kid Rock tour kicks off August 13 in Holmdel, NJ. Check out the full tour itinerary.
