'It's Just Something the Band's Talked About at Various Times. At This Point, the Five of Us Have Never Sat Down and Said, 'It's Time to Do It.' So 'Considering' Is an Appropriate Word for That Statement', Said Perry to Rolling Stone Magazine

46 years after their formation, and being one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, ‘Aerosmith’ are considering a “Farewell tour”. The band members  have been “discussing this option for the past few years”. So said guitarist Joe Perry to Rolling Stone Magazine

"A farewell tour is something we've talked about doing for years, let's say roughly in the last five years," he told Rolling Stone. "It's just something the band's talked about at various times. At this point, the five of us have never sat down and said, 'It's time to do it.' So 'considering' is an appropriate word for that statement. A farewell tour is definitely not confirmed."

Coming fall, the band will start a new tour at South America. But the greater future is uncertain. Perry added: "We're talking about some different options at this point. Whether it's to do some shorter tours like the last couple we've done or go into the studio and knock a few songs out and see how that feels, I'm not sure yet. But right now we're really taking time off from the band and everybody's off doing their own thing."
