Aerosmith have announced an 18-date Las Vegas residency entitled 'Deuces Are Wild' for April 2019.

The 'Dream On' hitmakers - Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer - will kick off their ''hot, sexy rock and roll'' shows to celebrate their 50th anniversary on April 6 at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM in Sin City, with the final date currently scheduled for July 9.

Teasing their ''epic'' plans, frontman Steven and guitarist Joe said: ''We are going to bring hot, sexy rock and roll to Vegas!!

''The residency allows us to take 50 years of performing experience and create a one of kind show with the best music, best production design, best sound, in a world-class state of the art venue. These shows will be epic!''

The special gigs will feature ''never-seen-before visuals and audio from Aerosmith recording sessions'' from producer Giles Martin, who was responsible for The Beatles' 'Love' Cirque du Soleil concerts in the gambling capital.

And it will also see ''the world's first THX Certified live performance presented in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound''.

The 'Sweet Emotion' rockers had fans thinking they were quitting the road when they went out on the 'Aero-Vederci Baby! Tour' last year, but they later reassured them that it wouldn't be the last they'll see of them with the impending five-decade milestone on the horizon.

Joe said earlier this year: ''I think the way things are going, we are going to try and take it easy.

''We may do a couple more one-offs -- maybe some festivals over the next six or eight months.

''In 2019, we will be closing in on our 50th anniversary, so we are planning some dates and a tour to celebrate that. Right now, we are pretty much laying low and finishing up some solo things before we start that.''

Frontman Steven previously admitted that the 'Aero-Vederci Baby! Tour' was more of a ''hello goodbye'' than a farewell.

He explained: ''We're always thinking about what to do for a tour.

''And so many bands have said 'This is our last tour' to generate tickets and all that stuff - bands that have been around as long as we have.

''So we figured, we're going to Europe, we're gonna do whatever we're doing here, and people haven't seen us for a while, so how about throwing that kind of mysticism out? And 'Aero-Vederci' says it but it doesn't say it.

''It's like 'hello goodbye' in one beautiful - where Joe and I came from - Italian saying.''

Tickets for 'Deuces Are Wild' go on sale August 16 for the band's Aero Force One fan club, and general sale on August 24.
