After completing more than 50 years in the music scene, the Aerosmith announced that they will say goodbye to their audience with a tour that will start in the fall.

The farewell tour will be headlined “Peace Out” and will start on September 2nd from Philadelphia. The 40-date run, which includes a stop in the band’s hometown of Boston on New Year’s Eve, will conclude on January 26 in Montreal. “I think it’s about time,” guitarist Joe Perry told The Associated Press.

“It’s an opportunity to celebrate 50 years of presence,” Perry added. “You never know how long everyone’s going to be healthy enough to do this… It’s been a while since we’ve done a real tour. We did the shows in Vegas, which was great. It’s been fun, but (we’re) kind of anxious to get back on the road.”

The band’s drummer Joey Kramer, as announced by the band, will not participate in the tour. “While Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has unfortunately made the decision not to pursue the planned tour dates in order to focus his full attention on his family and health,” the statement said. “Joey’s undeniable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”
