Not a big Aerosmith fan as I think the 90's catalog was a lot of crap. Some of their earlier stuff was pretty good and I think is respected as classic rock and will get me to turn my radio up a little. With that, I don't think I would ever shell out some cash to see a concert and I know without doubt that I wouldn't pay to see someone other than Steven Tyler fronting the band. If this happens I don't see how the tour could be successful.
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
