LOS ANGELES, June 2 (UPI) -- The long-running rock band Aerosmith said on its Web site it will begin a U.S. summer concert tour in Oakland, Calif., July 23.

The 40-year-old band recently played seven South American "Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock Tour" dates. The final one Tuesday night was the largest concert in Costa Rica's history.

Aerosmith, anointed "America's greatest rock 'n' roll band" by Kid Rock and once dubbed the "Bad Boys from Boston," also has booked 11 European dates.

Live Nation, the national tour promoter for Aerosmith, confirmed Tuesday the band will bring its show to 18 U.S. cities this summer. Tickets are to go on sale in select markets beginning Friday at LiveNation.com.

In addition, the recently announced hometown Fenway Park date scheduled for Aug. 14 sold out in a record-breaking 23 minutes, Live Nation said.

"I thought it was time to get my mojo back, by rockin' South America and Europe with a little home run at Boston's Fenway Park thrown in and then off to the rest of America to do what we do best! We're gonna rock you into the middle of next week," Aersomith lead singer Steven Tyler, 62, said in a statement.

"This is a perfect time for us to tour North America as we are just completing a very successful tour of South America. We are looking forward to our European tour next month and then bringing our show back to our home soil. We are running on all cylinders and are 'Cocked Locked and Ready to Rock,'" added guitarist Joe Perry, 59.
