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.
