Slash and Aerosmith are heading out on the road together this summer after announcing plans for a huge North American tour.

The Let Rock Rule trek will begin in New York on July 10 and end two months later in Canada.

The two acts confirmed dates during a press conference at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles on Tuesday, during which Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler told fans and the media, "Looking forward to inciting a riot and building the tribal bonfire even higher - it's a win win with Slash."

The former Guns N' Roses guitarist added, "Aerosmith is one of my all time favourite bands, and one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands of all time. It's an honour for me to go out and tour with them and keep the rock 'n' roll banner flying high."

Reports of the tour first surfaced last week when Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry took to the streets of Los Angeles with graffiti artist Risk and 'tagged' various buildings with his band's logo, and the tour announcement date of 4.8.14. Drummer Joey Kramer hit buildings in Downtown Austin, Texas for a similar stunt with artist Chunk.

Slash and Aerosmith aren't the only big-name double act hitting the road in America and Canada this summer - Linkin Park will join 30 Seconds to Mars for a string of dates; KISS and Def Leppard have teamed up, and last week, Jeff Beck and ZZ Top announced plans for a co-headlining tour.
