Aerosmith Taps Monster Magnet, Fuel To Open Rescheduled Tour

After enduring several rather bizarre setbacks to its scheduled summer tour because of various injuries sustained by its members, Aerosmith has finally announced a revised itinerary for the next leg of its North American tour, which will keep the band on the road through the first week of December.

Opening up for Aerosmith on the rescheduled tour dates will be Monster Magnet from September 9 to October 3, with Fuel picking up the slot beginning on October 5 and running through the 26.

As we previously reported (see "Aerosmith Postpones Tour Dates As Drummer Kramer Recovers From Burns"), Aerosmith was supposed to kick-off its summer road jaunt in Raleigh, North Carolina, on August 14, but pulled the plug when Joey Kramer was burned during a freak accident at a gas station.

In May, the band canceled a month's worth of dates when Steven Tyler hurt his knee during a concert in Anchorage, Alaska, an injury that hobbled the

vocalist for several weeks before he underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his leg.
