Perry recently joined Foo Fighters for a cover of The Beatles' “Come Together” at Cal Jam after wrapping up his touring year with Aerosmith in September. The Bad Boys of Boston's fall tour of South America was canceled prematurely after frontman Steven Tyler suffered “unexpected medical issues," which forced the band to cancel their remaining AeroVederci Baby Tour dates in Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico.
