According to RTT News, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry says that Aerosmith will not be playing live on the American Idol finale next week.

In a post on his official Facebook page, Perry says they were never formally asked to play the show. He went on to say, "Brad has gig that night with "Hendrix Experience". Its not logistically possible".  Perry said that Aerosmith would love to play American Idol next season when they have time to produce a great show.

Steven Tyler announced several weeks ago that he had talked with the other members of Aerosmith and they said they would play live at the American Idol finale.

Will they or won't they, we'll have to wait and see. We'll keep you posted.
