Rudolph has managed lead singer Steven Tyler since 2014.

Aerosmith has signed with ReignDeer Entertainment/Maverick’s Larry Rudolph for management.    

Rudolph, who also manages Britney Spears and Pitbull, has handled Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler’s solo career since 2014 and took on the whole band recently, but had not announced the news. The group had worked with Trudy Green and the late Howard Kaufman for nearly 20 years.    

The move comes as the band approaches its 50th anniversary in 2020. While no celebrations have been officially confirmed around the golden anniversary yet, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers may have some news to announce when they play the Citi Concert Series on Today the morning of Aug. 15.    

  

One endeavor could be a new tour after the band members concentrated on individual projects this year other than a few select shows, such as headlining New Orleans Jazz Fest. Guitarist Joe Perry told the Atlantic City Weekly in April, “In 2019 we will be closing in on our 50th anniversary, so we are planning some dates and a tour to celebrate that. Right now we are pretty much laying low and finishing up some solo things before we start that.”  

The last new studio album from the group, which also includes bassist Tom Hamilton, drummer Joey Kramer and guitarist Brad Whitford, was 2012’s Music from Another Dimension! on Columbia Records.  

Rudolph confirmed the move, but declined to comment further. Green declined to comment.
