Aerosmith is going on tour again this summer. The Global Warming tour, which was announced Monday, is the band's first North American trek in two years. Jiffy Lube Live is getting the show July 3. Cheap Trick is opening.  Unlike their contemporaries Van Halen, the band doesn't have a new album to plug. In fact, they haven't released new studio material in eight years, since "Honkin on Bobo. " While they've stayed on the road, they've mainly played South America and Europe in the course of the last two years.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry gently puffs on a small cigar while talking music in a local radio studio. He isn't supposed to be smoking indoors. But no one is about to tell Joe Perry, one of the gods of rock guitar, to stub it out. Instead, the on-air staff gives him an overturned Starbucks coffee lid to use as an ashtray and lets him speak. "He's a legend," said DJ Stash, after interviewing Perry for 98ROCK. "We tried to make him comfortable and get out of his way." Legends get to light up wherever they want.

No one expects rock bands to age gracefully. Either they enter middle age in complete denial, trying like the Beach Boys to act like teenagers even though they look like retirees, or they stumble into their dotage with sagging guts and thinning hair (hello, Deep Purple!).Yet somehow, Aerosmith appears not to have aged at all. Even though guitarist Joe Perry was celebrating his 43rd birthday when the band played the USAir Arena Friday, these rock vets seemed as lean and rakish as ever strutting through the likes of "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)"

Aerosmith wasn't kidding when it called its current album "Nine Lives." Like the lucky cats who seem to escape death over and over, Aerosmith has managed to keep its commercialfortunes alive for more than 25 years, despite a history that would have obliterated other bands.After a string of multi-platinum albums in the mid-'70s, the band suffered as drug use and internal quarrels took their toll. Sales fell off, guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford left, and by 1980, Aerosmith was a shadow of its former self.

"Everybody peaks in their own time," says Aerosmith guitaris Joe Perry. "With Aerosmith, I think that we were just fumbling along in the '70s, making all the mistakes just the right way, you know? And now we're building on it, and I think that we still have a lot left to say. I don't think that we've written our best songs, I don't think that we've played our best shows."Given Aerosmith's track record -- nine platinum albums, 13 Top-40 singles and a history that stretches back to 1970 -- Perry's statement might seem a tad modest.

TAMPA, Fla. - Now, Super Bowl week has begun. The glitz and glamour that is Super Bowl XXXV got a rousing kick in the pants yesterday with the appearance of that customary football tradition, 'N Sync. The five-member boy band that has stolen the hearts of teen-age girls was introduced as one-fifth of the Super Bowl XXXV Halftime Show news conference. Oh, did anyone mention that rock icon Aerosmith also shared the stage as another performer during halftime? Regardless, much of the attention - including that of several teen-age girls who asked their parents to take pictures of them standing 20 feet away from the stage - surrounded 'N Sync.

Just when, exactly, did Aerosmith become safe?It wasn't so long ago that the venerable quintet was seen as a spiritual forebear to such bad-boy rockers as Guns N' Roses. Before that, the band had such a reputation for high times and substance abuse that singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry were dubbed "the Toxic Twins." Even in its youth, the group's raunchy sound and lust for double entendres suggested nothing so much as a scruffier version of the Rolling Stones.Back then, Aerosmith looked about as easy to domesticate as a jungle cat. Even so, "Nine Lives" (Columbia 67547, arriving in stores today)
