Steven Tyler performs at “Steven Tyler … Out On A Limb” at the Lincoln Center on Monday, May 2, 2016, in New York.

The man who has long demanded, “Walk this way, talk this way,” will be doing some talking — along with singing — on the Strip in July.

Steven Tyler is bringing his “Out On A Limb” song-and-storytelling show to the Venetian Theater on July 2 (tickets start at $40 and are on sale May 14 at 10 a.m. at Venetian.com and by calling (702) 414-9000 and (866) 641-7469).

The original Aerosmith frontman, Tyler is touring theaters and music halls — such as Lincoln Center in New York on Monday night — with the band Loving Mary of Nashville. His show is to be a mix of tales about his life as a legendary rocker.

The show is to be directed by Brett Ratner and makes the use of video screens to punctuate Tyler’s narrative and live music performance. In his Lincoln Center appearance, on behalf of Janie’s Fund (a charity partnership with Youth Villages to provide support for young abused women), he played such hits as “Sweet Emotion,” “Jaded” and “Cryin’” in a 90-minute set.

"I'm digging deep and finding some real buried treasure for this one. I've never performed quite like this before," Tyler told Rolling Stone magazine. "I'm telling it like it is and getting to perform with some extremely talented musicians and dear friends from Nashville."
