Aerosmith performs next month


POSTED: Friday, September 25, 2009

Looks like Aerosmith fans won't have to wait until 2010 for the band to make good on postponed concerts in Honolulu and on Maui.

The Grammy Award-winning band announced Monday that it had rescheduled the two Hawaii shows after determining that lead singer Steven Tyler was ready to resume performing. He was injured during a performance at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota last month and received nearly two dozen stitches to his head afterward.

According to promoters Tom Moffatt and Shep Gordon, the rescheduled concerts will take place Oct. 18 at Blaisdell Arena and Oct. 20 at Maui's War Memorial Stadium. Tickets for the Oahu show are priced at $75, $95 and $195 and go on sale at 9 a.m. tomorrow at all Ticketmaster outlets.

Tickets for the Maui performance, priced at $65, $85 and $125, don't go on sale to the general public until Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. Maui Arts & Cultural Center donors will be able to purchase them tomorrow at 10 a.m. ...
