Aerosmith will be making a return visit to the Super Bowl.
The headliners of the 2001 Super Bowl halftime show in Tampa, Fla., will perform in the finale of this year's pre-game show at Reliant Stadium in Houston, it was announced this week.
"The Super Bowl is rock and roll! It's slammin', it's precision, it's passion and pure energy," Aerosmith's Steven Tyler said in a statement.
Aerosmith recently concluded a U.S. concert tour with Kiss, which was one of 2003's top grossing tours, and plans to release a new album titled "Honkin' On Bobo" this spring. The band will commence a U.S. tour in the support of the album in March 2004.
Aerosmith headlined the Super Bowl XXXV Halftime show with *NSYNC in Tampa, FL in 2001.
In addition to Tyler, members of Aerosmith are Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums).
The Super Bowl will air live on CBS on Feb. 1.
