Tyler plans special NYC benefit gig

Monday, April 4, 2016 – Steven Tyler today announced the special "Steven Tyler...Out on a Limb" concert at Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall on May 2nd.

Director Brett Ratner and Tyler are collaborating on for the benefit for Janie's Fund, Tyler's charity to help girls overcome the trauma of abuse and neglect.

"I'm digging deep and finding some real buried treasure for this one. I've never performed quite like this before," said Tyler. "I'm telling it like it is and getting to perform with some extremely talented musicians and dear friends from Nashville. For this show, we're taking it up close and personal and truly going...Out on a Limb."

The night will showcase stories and insights from his piano upbringing to being in Aerosmith. Backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary, Tyler will lead the crowd on a time-traveling journey from his musical ancestors in Calabria, Italy to Nashville's country music.

Tyler has released several country singles, including the current "Red, White & You."

Named after his hit song "Janie's Got A Gun," Janie's Fund is a collaboration between Tyler and non-profit organization Youth Villages established to help girls overcome abuse and neglect.

"Youth Villages is so grateful to Steven Tyler for starting Janie's Fund to help our girls who are working to heal from abuse," said Youth Villages CEO Patrick Lawler. "Steven's commitment to helping these girls brings them so much hope, and this will be an incredible evening. He uses his big voice unceasingly to raise awareness and funds for the voiceless."

The event will also feature a silent auction from a five-day stay at Tyler's Hawaiian home to a limited edition, hand-shaped artist series surfboard designed by artist Tim Bessell as part of the Bessell Warhol Project. Additional items include an autographed painting of Tyler and Aerosmith band mate Joe Perry by artist Brian Fox; the Skittles mic stand from the set of Tyler's Super Bowl commercial; exclusive signed images taken by photographer Sarah Skinner; pieces from Tyler's personal wardrobe worn on American Idol; and an opportunity to attend the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles along with a complimentary gifting suite prize package.

Tickets go on-sale Friday at 10 a.m. and are priced at $53, $153 and $203.

CD review - We're All Somebody From Somewhere It's a difficult proposition for a band member to go solo after a longstanding highly successful career and try to forge a musical identity that not only isn't all that similar to what's come before, but is also able to stand on its own as musically viable. And despite some false starts in launching his solo career commercially on the country charts, Steven Tyler has managed to make a statement on both counts.
