PRNewsFoto/Live NationSteven Tyler will go “out on a limb” to deliver an Storytellers-style performance on May 2 at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall in New York City to raise money for his recently launched charity, Janie’s Fund. The event, dubbed “Steven Tyler…Out on a Limb,” will feature the Aerosmith frontman performing with Loving Mary, a Nashville-based group that’s contributing to his upcoming country-flavored solo album.

Director Brett Ratner is collaborating with Tyler on the event, which will feature Steven sharing personal stories about his family, his musical upbringing, his adventures and misadventures with Aerosmith, and more.

“I’m digging deep and finding some real buried treasure for this one. I’ve never performed quite like this before,” says Tyler in a statement. “I’m telling it like it is and getting to perform with some extremely talented musicians and dear friends from Nashville.”

In addition to the performance, the event will feature a silent auction offering the chance to buy a variety of memorabilia and unique experiences. Among them are a five-day stay at Tyler’s home in Hawaii, the mic stand from the Skittles commercial starring Steven that aired during this year’s Super Bowl and clothing items the singer wore during his stint as an American Idol judge.

Tickets to “Steven Tyler…Out on a Limb” go on sale this Friday, April 8, 10 a.m. local time, with prices rangimng from $53 to $203. In addition, special VIP packages will be offered by the Twisted J apparel company. Visit for more details.

Janie’s Fund was co-founded by Tyler the Youth Villages nonprofit organization in November. The charity, which was named after the Aerosmith hit “Janie’s Got a Gun,” supports girls and young women who are dealing with abuse and neglect.

Tyler’s as-yet-untitled debut solo album is expected to be released this summer.
