AEROSMITH DECLARES LET ROCK RULE

NORTH AMERICAN SUMMER TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUEST SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS KICKS OFF JULY 10 IN NEW YORK

LOS ANGELES, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Who better to declare LET ROCK RULE than AEROSMITH, America's Greatest Rock Band? Rock's most lethal army - Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford - and special guest SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will join forces for the LET ROCK RULE tour, this summer's definitive rock 'n roll experience.

AEROSMITH ANNOUNCES LET ROCK RULE TOUR.

Promoted in part by Live Nation, the LET ROCK RULE tour kicks off on Thursday, July 10 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, N.Y. (see full itinerary below).  AEROSMITH and SLASH - longtime friends who have performed together throughout the years - will also take over Boston, Mass. (Xfinity Center), Los Angeles, Calif. (The Forum) and San Francisco, Calif. (Concord Pavilion) among other cities, before wrapping Tuesday, Sept. 9 in Clarkston, Mich. (DTE Energy Music Theatre).

This summer's hottest ticket will go on sale to the general public starting on Saturday, April 12 through the Live Nation mobile app and at www.livenation.com.  The first round of tour dates are below with additional dates for a second leg to be announced shortly. 

"Looking forward to inciting a riot and building the tribal bonfire even higher--it's a win win with Slash," said Steven Tyler.

Says Joe Perry: "The writing's on the wall--Aerosmith and Slash.  We're gonna let rock rule this summer.  Catch us if you can."

Says Slash: "Aerosmith is one of my all time favorite bands, and one of the greatest rock 'n roll bands of all time. It's an honor for me to go out and tour with them and  keep the rock 'n roll banner flying high."

The excitement for LET ROCK RULE began ramping up mysteriously last week when the AEROSMITH logo and the tour announcement date of "4.8.14" was bombed on various buildings in downtown Los Angeles by JOE PERRY with acclaimed street artist Risk.  Following this, AEROSMITH drummer JOEY KRAMMER stepped up the momentum and went to Downtown Austin with street artist, CHUNK, to continue the "LET ROCK RULE" tagging. It was all first reported by TMZ - http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/04/joe-perry-grafitti-aerosmith-spray-paint-logo-tour/ - and the bombing has continued every night.

JOE PERRY says, "I have always felt that AEROSMITH was America's hometown band and what better way than to take matters into our own hands to spread the word."

Earlier today, STEVEN TYLER and JOE PERRY revealed on On Air With Ryan Seacrest that they would perform a free set to announce the LET ROCK RULE tour.  AEROSMITH, with a special guest appearance by SLASH, played a roof-raising set for the assembled crowd at the Whisky A Go Go, the historic Hollywood venue where they performed their first Los Angeles gig in 1973.

AEROSMITH's North American summer dates will follow the band's overseas dates kicking off Wednesday, May 14 in Istanbul, Turkey and will hit 16 countries including stops in Russia, France and the U.K. before wrapping Wednesday, July 2 in Kiev, Ukraine.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making. In order to derive business value, organizations must unlock insights from the data gathered and then act on these. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, and Peter Shashkin, Head of Development Department at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how one organization leveraged IoT, cloud technology and data analysis to improve customer experiences and effici...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
"IoT is going to be a huge industry with a lot of value for end users, for industries, for consumers, for manufacturers. How can we use cloud to effectively manage IoT applications," stated Ian Khan, Innovation & Marketing Manager at Solgeniakhela, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
