Kicking off on May 24 at the Turning Stone Casino, New York the band is then set to play dates in Portugal, Germany, Sweden and Denmark before returning to the US for 17 further dates throughout July.

However, that’s just the start, and more concerts will be announced shortly.

Of the decision to create the group and to embark on a tour, Joe Perry said: “Over the last year we were finally able to wrangle our schedules and the energy just fell into place. Playing with this lineup is like a dream come true. After seeing the reaction at Rock in Rio in front of 100,000 fans, I know this band is going to tear the house down. Hell, I would want to be in the audience to see us rip it up.”

Alongside Perry, Cooper and Depp, the touring band will consist of Stone Temple Pilots’ Robert DeLeo on bass and Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses and The Cult) on drums with The Kids’ Bruce Witkin on piano, percussion and guitar.
