The soap opera starring Steven Tyler and Joe Perry just keeps getting more convoluted. Aerosmith -- the whole band -- has been tapped to headline the Download Festival in June, even though recent news reports suggested the iconic rock group was moving on without their troubled lead singer.
In a statement on the festival's site, Tyler said, "In the early days of Aerosmith we were infected with the vibe coming out of the UK with the Yardbirds, Blues Breakers, Pretty Things and the Stones and we wanted what they had bad. So baby, we're coming home. Rock & Roll can be pure sex and we can't wait to Download..."
Reuters and other outlets report the statement was taken down from the site, but it has since been reinstated.
Official channels within the Aerosmith machine have yet to comment on the booking, but drummer Joey Kramer belted "Aerosmith is back!" in a post on his Twitter feed on Wednesday.
There have been reports the band had to include Tyler in the mix if they wanted to play the festival.
