The headlining dates kick off November 30 in Iowa and include stops in New York, Detroit, Philadelphia and more before wrapping up with three Los Angeles-area shows.

Along with choice cuts from his catalog of solo records, JOE will be performing rarely played Aerosmith classics from the band’s early records including “Toys In The Attic,” “Get Your Wings,” and “Rocks,” among others. SWEETZERLAND MANIFESTO marks JOE’s sixth solo album and is comprised of 10 new tracks all written or co-written by JOE (many with the album’s guest vocalists), except for a cover of “Eve Of Destruction” with JOE on lead vocals and Johnny Depp on drums. The album features guest appearances from a long list of JOE’s friends, colleagues and rock and roll icons. Highlights include “Aye, Aye, Aye,” which JOE co-wrote with the track’s vocalist Robin Zander, and three collaborations with David Johansen, who sings “I Wanna Roll,” “Haberdasher Blues,” and “I’m Going Crazy,” plus as many co-writes with Terry Reid whose lead vocals light up “I’ll Do Happiness” (with Zak Starkey on drums), “Sick & Tired” and “Won’t Let Me Go.” A few days before the album’s January release, JOE and his all-star band crushed it at a two-hour plus set at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
