Aerosmith tickets for NY State Fair could be expensive

Aerosmith Tickets for their upcoming show at the New York State Fair are likely to cost a pretty penny after the band became the first in the event's history to be paid a $1 million (£698,000) performance fee.

The swaggering rockers' fee far exceeds those of previous performers such as country stars Rascal Flatts orTaylor Swift, according to The Post Standard.

What's more, if the event, due to take place on August 26th, sells out, the Bad Boys from Boston will receive an extra $300,000, the website reports.

Talking up the impending performance, fair spokesperson Frederic Pierce said: "We're incredibly excited about this concert."

Aerosmith will be playing the event to wind down their 2010 tour of South America and Europe.

The plans involve UK dates at the Download Festival (June 13th) and London's O2 Arena (June 15th).

Commenting on the 2010 tour, lead singer Steven Tyler said: ""Back by popular demand with more spit and fire than ever before, we're coming across the pond and parting the waters as we go."
