On September 14 at Dolby Live at Park MGM, Aerosmith's Dueces Are Wild Las Vegas residency began. The residency will feature an "electrifying 90-minute live performance from the band who continue to deliver one of the most innovative and thrilling performances in music." A press statement stated that the 90-minute performance will include "exclusive, unreleased audio and never-before-seen visuals from Aerosmith's archives."
In addition to the significant Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas residency, John Douglas, who will be a replacement for Joey Kramer, has partnered up with Animazing Gallery for a limited engagement exhibition of The Art of John Douglas. The exhibition opens on December 9 and runs through January 1. There will be a free, public opening reception with the artist on that date from 6 to 9 p.m.
Douglas reportedly said, "Way back in 2001 I painted what is widely considered Joe [Perry]'s most famous and iconic guitar, known as the 'Billie' guitar. It features a portrait of his wife Billie painted on the front and back. It has been photographed and featured on the cover of just about every music publication," as reported by The Music Universe.
"I thought it would be cool for me to paint a portrait of Joe playing that guitar... for myself," Douglas said, adding, "You know... a portrait of Joe playing the 'Billie' guitar painted by the guy that painted the 'Billie' guitar. So, in my spare time I did just that. When I finished it, I contacted Joe's guitar tech and asked him if he could get Joe to sign it for me."
"He said 'we are up at Joe's house now recording his next solo album. Send it up here and I'll have Joe sign it for you'. So, I did that. Apparently, Joe took one look at the painting and said, 'that's my album cover!' The Hard Rock Cafe now owns the original," Douglas concluded.
