Getting ready to say “Peace Out” on Saturday night, Buck Johnson of Aerosmith called into my show on Wednesday night. Aerosmith, with support from The Black Crowes, begin their farewell tour this weekend, September 2, 2023, at our Wells Fargo Center.
Buck Johnson is a keyboardist, backing vocalist and acoustic guitarist with the rock band Aerosmith. He also performs with Hollywood Vampires, Steven Tyler, and Joe Perry.
On Wednesday, August 30, Buck told me: “We’re so looking forward to kicking off this Peace Out tour.” “It’s good to be in the city now. And this is going to be an amazing tour. The guys are so excited and on fire and the band’s never sounded better. I’m so thrilled to be part of this, man. I pinch myself every time because I’m playing with legends. I hate for it to see it say Peace Out, but it’s got to come to end at some point. But who knows how long it’ll last? They could keep it going for a while, but what better place to start it here in Philadelphia?”
We also spoke about where they’ve been practicing. “And that facility out in Lititz, it’s Rock Lititz, it’s amazing. And get everything you need there. We were able to put up the whole show that we do an arena there, it’s perfect, man. People are so sweet and nice and we’re out in the cornfield,” Buck said. Steven Tyler was recently spotted at a hardware store in Lititz. It’s awesome to have these guys hanging out locally right now.
