The ongoing sessions for a new album and the occasional dramatic moment won’t keep Aerosmith away from their natural habitat – the concert stage. The legendary Boston rockers have reportedly confirmed their first North American tour date for 2012.

WFJA reports that the band will be the headlining act at the Freshwater Suzuki Salmon Festival in Newfoundland, Canada on July 14. Aerosmith will anchor the bill of musical entertainment that will also feature Cheap Trick as the band’s official opener, with Uncle Kracker also set to perform at the festival.

Aero frontman Steven Tyler previously confirmed that the band would be on the road this summer with tour dates starting on June 18, which gives Tyler plenty of time to wrap up his current ‘American Idol’ commitments.

New music from the band will appear in the form of ‘Legendary Child,’ a ‘Get a Grip’-era outtake that has been retooled for the June 29 soundtrack release of ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ and also will likely be on the new Aerosmith LP.

Whether ‘Legendary’ will make it into the setlist for the summer shows remains to be seen, but it would certainly be nice to hear something new to preview that long-awaited album, which is being produced by Jack Douglas.

With their comments on the material currently in the works for that new album, Aerosmith is giving fans plenty to look forward to. Guitarist Joe Perry recently said that it “definitely has a feel like some of the early stuff,’ which he said is a direct response to constantly hearing the request from the masses for music that sounds like the “old stuff.”
