Joe Perry assembles all-star band for solo dates

Joe Perry is taking the stage in support of his new solo album — and he’s rounded up a bunch of his famous friends.
As previously reported, Perry is prepping Sweetzerland Manifesto, his first non-holiday solo studio effort in nearly a decade. Due Jan. 19, the new album finds the Aerosmith co-founder working with an array of well-known collaborators that includes Cheap Trick frontman Robin Zander, Terry Reid and David “Buster Poindexter” Johansen.
Perry was joined by Zander — as well as Extreme singer Gary Cherone and Stone Temple Pilots members Dean and Robert DeLeo — for his set at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Jan. 10. Dubbed “The Sound of Rock,” Perry’s performance spanned 17 songs, touching on covers and new material, as well as Aerosmith classics; you can check out fan-shot footage from the show above and below.

Aerosmith’s Joe Perry Will Headline Monster CES 2018 Concert

Monster said rock guitarist Joe Perry of Aerosmith will headline its annual CES concert in January.

This year’s concert and awards program, which honors the company’s top retail partners, will be held at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas on Jan. 10. This is not the first time Perry has taken the stage for Monster; he also appeared at the Michael Jackson tribute show at CES 2016. He is a brand ambassador for the audio manufacturer and has been collaborating with Monster for a line of CE devices, slated to debut at CES.

The concert, titled “The Sound of Rock,” will also feature special guests, Monster said, who will be “handpicked” by Perry. Names will be revealed closer to the show.

Monster has a long history of bringing big-name acts to its invite-only annual CES concerts. Past performers include Ray Charles, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, B.B. King, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Fleetwood Mac, John Legend, Steve Miller, and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
