Aerosmith returns to the road with Global Warming tour

After Steven Tyler has wrapped up his season two “American Idol” judging duties, look for him to return to his day job: Aerosmith will start its first U.S. tour in two years on June 16 at Minneapolis”s Target Center.

There”s no word yet on if the new album, which the band has been working on for ages now, will be ready by then.  Aerosmith”s last studio album was 2004″s “Honkin” On Bobo.”

The band seems to be over the latest rough chapter in its tremendously fractious 40-year history. In fact, frenemies Tyler and Joe Perry sounded absolutely besotted with each other on Twitter a few days ago, discussing Perry”s playing happy birthday to Tyler on “Idol.”

The next public appearance for the band will be a press conference about the Global Warming tour (and perhaps some other news) on Wednesday at The Grove in Los Angeles.  Tickets for the tour dates go on sale March 31.
