Aerosmith's upcoming tour will be "one of the greatest rock 'n' roll shows ever seen".

Guitarist Brad Whitford has teased that the group are hoping to feature some of their less well known songs on the setlist for their upcoming Farewell tour, which they have aptly titled 'Aero-Vederci Baby!'

He said: "We would like to do some more deep cuts. We'll see how that goes, it's very hard to get everybody to agree on certain things. We've basically done the hit-parade our whole career, and there's a lot of really great deep tracks that have been neglected. It would be nice to bring some of that stuff out. I think people would appreciate that."

When asked if there were any songs in particular that he was keen to feature, he added: "Yeah man, there's a lot of them - some of them my own songs. Like 'Nobody's Dault' -we haven't done very much live but people request all the time. A lot of good songs that people have gotten really close to being played. That song 'Amazing' which we, for some reason as a band don't like, but a lot of people love it and relate to the lyrics. So we're hoping to bring some rarer tracks out, because when else are we gonna do it?"

As part of their tour, the rock group - which also includes Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton - will play a hotly-anticipated set at Download Festival in the UK.

Speaking about the performance, Brad added to NME magazine: "We're always trying to take it up a notch every time we go on the stage, and there's a lot of friendly competition out there. It's fun, you never know what's gonna happen. We're always trying to surprise each other with something that we come up with."
