Rock legend Aerosmith will be in Turkey for the first time on May 14, 2014 at ITU Stadium as part of their world tour.

American rock legend, Aerosmith, sometimes referred to as “The Bad Boys from Boston” will meet their fans with their 2012 album “Music from Another Dimension” and greatest hits like Dream On, Walk This Way, Janie’s Got A Gun, Love In An Elevator, Livin’ On The Edge, Amazing, Crazy, Cryin’, Pink, Jaded and more.

Aerosmith rooted in blues-based hard rock, also incorporate elements of pop, heavy metal, rhythm and blues with the inspirations of many subsequent rock artists. Formed in Boston in 1970, by the guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, vocal Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano has signed to Columbia Records in 1972 and released a string of multi-platinum albums, beginning with their 1973 eponymous debut album, followed by their 1974 album Get Your Wings. In 1975, the band broke into the mainstream with the album “Toys in the Attic” and their 1976 follow-up “Rocks” cemented their status as hard rock superstars. Thus, two additional albums followed in 1977 and 1979. The band toured extensively and charted a string of Hot 100 singles throughout the 1970s. By the end of this decade, Aerosmith were among the most popular hard rock bands in the world and developed a loyal following of fans, often referred to as the “Blue Army”. The band did not fare well between 1980 and 1984, releasing a lone album, Rock in a Hard Place, which went gold but failed to match their previous successes.

Perry and Whitford returned in 1984 and the band signed a new deal with Geffen Records. After a comeback tour, the band recorded Done with Mirrors (1985), which won some critical praise but failed to come close to commercial expectations. It was not until the band’s collaboration with rap group Run–D.M.C. in 1986, and the 1987 release Permanent Vacation that they regained the level of popularity they had experienced in the 1970s. Throughout the late 1980s and 1990s, the band scored several hits and won numerous awards for music from the multi-platinum albums Pump (1989), Get a Grip (1993), and Nine Lives (1997), and embarked on their most extensive concert tours to date. The band also became a pop culture phenomenon with popular music videos and notable appearances in television, film, and video games. Their comeback has been described as one of the most remarkable and spectacular in rock ‘n’ roll history. Additional albums followed in 2001 and 2004 and the band toured throughout the 2000s, touring every year except 2008. After 43 years of performing, the band continues to tour and record music. Their latest album, “Music from Another Dimension!”, was released on November 6, 2012.

The legend band Aerosmith is the best-selling American rock band of all time, having sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, including 66.5 million albums in the United States alone. They also hold the record for the most gold albums by an American group and are tied for the most multi-platinum albums by an American group. The band has scored 21 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, nine number-one Mainstream Rock hits, four Grammy Awards, and ten MTV Video Music Awards. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, and were included among both Rolling Stone’s and VH1’s lists of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
