As part of the continued celebration around their 50th anniversary, four-time GRAMMY®-winning and Diamond-certified rock legends Aerosmith have announced the return of their Las Vegas residency, AEROSMITH: DEUCES ARE WILD at Dolby Live at Park MGM, beginning Friday, June 17, 2022. The incredible show will be the first live concert experience presented in Dolby Atmos at Dolby Live. Dolby Live is one of the world’s most technologically advanced performance venues for enjoying live music in Dolby Atmos.
“The only rust at Dolby Live is going to be on our van in the lobby! We are locked, cocked and loaded!” said Steven Tyler.
Since opening in April 2019 at Park MGM, AEROSMITH: DEUCES ARE WILD has received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Variety called the show a “multi-sensory spectacular” while People described it as “an audible history of the group’s five decades.” The Wrap wrote “Aerosmith still rocks, hard, not in spite of their five decades but because of them,” with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution saying that the show “offers fiery spectacle, deep cuts and hits,” and that they “are rock pioneers triumphing in a new environment.”

The centerpiece of AEROSMITH: DEUCES ARE WILD is the electrifying 90-minute live performance from the band who continue to deliver one of the most innovative and thrilling performances in music. The band goes beyond the average concert, taking fans on a deep dive of their groundbreaking career with exclusive, unreleased audio and never-before-seen visuals from Aerosmith’s archives featured through a 12-screen media presentation (including a 140 ft x 40 ft high-def screen) produced by Oscar and Emmy-winning global visual effects studio Pixomondo. Using cutting-edge technology, Pixomondo also brings to life Aerosmith’s infamous logo – the wings – which magically unfold to herald the band’s arrival on stage.
The AEROSMITH: DEUCES ARE WILD Residency at Dolby Live is the world’s first performance in Dolby Atmos bringing fans face-to-face with America’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in one of the most immersive, state-of-the art audio experiences ever. Dolby Atmos is an immersive audio experience that brings people inside their favorite entertainment. At Dolby Live, Dolby Atmos brings live performances to the next level by taking listeners inside the music to reveal details with unparalleled clarity and depth. Whether it’s hearing the layers of instruments move all around, catching the subtle breath a singer takes between lyrics, or being enveloped in a wave of melodies, nothing compares to hearing music live in Dolby Atmos.
In addition to their Las Vegas residency, the rock legends are also gearing up to release Aerosmith – 1971: The Road Starts Hear (UMe) on CD and digital formats on April 8. This rare recording from 1971 was recently discovered in Aerosmith’s Vindaloo Vaults and was originally only available as a limited-edition cassette and vinyl release for Record Store Day in 2021. The heavily sought-after RSD release quickly sold out and debuted on the Billboard 200, hitting No. 2 on the Top Hard Rock Albums chart, No. 12 on the Top Rock Albums chart, No. 13 on the Vinyl Albums chart, and No. 19 on the Top Album Sales chart.
Aerosmith – 1971: The Road Starts Hear includes previously unseen archived photos, images of the original tape box, and liner notes written by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke with new interviews and comments from the band about this long-forgotten recording. With seven extraordinary tracks, this historic document showcases the early, unbridled talent of the future Hall of Fame members including a nascent version of “Dream On,” which they would later record and release on their 1973 eponymous major label debut. The Road Starts Hear also features early recordings of gems such as “Somebody,” “Movin’ Out,” “Walkin’ The Dog,” and “Mama Kin” all of which would also later be recorded for their landmark debut. Other tracks include “Reefer Head Woman,” which would later be recorded for their 1979 album Night In The Ruts, and “Major Barbara,” a song that would be featured on their 1986 release Classics Live.
