JOHANNESBURG - Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler says he can't wait to perform in South Africa as part of rock supergroup Kings of Chaos's upcoming South African tour.

Speaking to 94.7 Highveld Stereo's Breakfast Xpress team this morning, the iconic rocker said the shows will be "crazy off the hook".

He said fans can look forward to him and Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt performing More Than Words.

Tyler, who has been in the music industry for over four decades, said he would never retire.

"I don't know what I would do. I am not built like that. Music is my passion and I just really can't get enough of it. I'll never stop."

Tyler said coming to Africa has been a dream for him since he was a child.

He said one of the things he is most looking forward to about his upcoming South Africa trip is going on safari.

The Kings of Chaos will perform at the Sun City Superbowl on 29 November and GrandWest Casino's Grand Arena in Cape Town on 3 December.

The part-time all-star rock 'n' roll group's core members include former Guns N' Roses members Matt Sorum, Duff McKagan and Gilby Clarke.

Apart from Tyler and Bettencourt, the South Africa line-up also includes ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Cheap Trick's Robin Zander.

The enterprise evolved out of the Rock 'N' Roll Allstars, an 11-piece outfit that included Gene Simmons and Def Leppard's Joe Elliott.
