Aerosmith's double-disc career retrospective finally has a name -- "O, Yeah! -- Ultimate Aerosmith Hits" -- but the album's release date has been pushed back a week to July 2. As previously reported, the set runs the gamut from such early favorites as "Dream On" up through two new songs, "Lay It Down" and "Girls of Summer." The latter cut is No. 29 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart this week. "O, Yeah!" will be available with four different 3-D album covers.
Meanwhile, the group has added a handful of dates to its summer tour with Kid Rock and Run-DMC. Dates now run from Aug. 13 in Holmdel, N.J., through Sept. 20 in Cincinnati. Aerosmith will also play June 27 in Tokyo as part of the FIFA World Cup festivities. Guitarist Joe Perry recently underwent knee surgery to repair damaged ligaments but is expected to be adequately recovered for the upcoming shows.
