Aerosmith to debut new single on American Idol

Steven Tyler and his band Aerosmith will hit the American Idol stage on May 23.

The band will perform their new single on the grand finale of the show despite the fact guitarist Joe Perry had criticised the show when Tyler joined.

"It wasn't about the show – it was about how we found out about it," Perry told Rolling Stone. "I was pissed off about that whole thing, but I've played on it before and the band is gonna play on it in the last episode of the season to debut the new single. So it's not about the show, it's about how we found out about it. It was a bit of a shock and it took us off balance."
