Guitarist Joe Perry spoke with enthusiasm for the show in a statement: "Speaking for myself I've been so involved writing my autobiography I did not realise how long it had been since we have played across the big pond. Its been far too long since we have performed in the UK. We can¹t wait to bring back some of the classics as well as some of the new songs from 'Music from Another Dimension'. We miss our UK fans. See you soon," via NME.
