Aerosmith announce their rescheduled European tour dates. The American rock band will headline Graspop 2021 on Sunday 20 June.

Aerosmith would have started the European leg of their ”Deuces are Wild” this summer at I-Days Festival in Milan. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak the band had to postpone all their tour dates.

Now, the Bad Boys from Boston have announced that they will be returning to Europe in 2021. Aerosmith will not only perform at I-Days on Friday 11 June 2021, but they are also confirmed as the first headliner for Graspop’s 2021 XL-edition. Moreover, their show at Graspop will be a Benelux exclusive.
