Aerosmith, Cheap Trick team up for summer tour



Aerosmith/AP photoAerosmith calling it quits? Not a chance. At least not in 2012. Despite frontman Steven Tyler's new and sometimes-annoying love-affair with American Idol, the band has announced a "Global Warming" tour of North America this summer. Cheap Trick will be the opening act. Tickets went on sale Tuesday for most dates.

Okay, now the bad news: No Florida dates have been announced, and after looking at the tour dates, I don't really see room for a trip this far south either.

Feel free to read the canned quotes from bandmembers provided by It's not like Aerosmith really needs to sell themselves these days.
