AEROSMITH is receiving rave reviews for their live performances. Here's a taste of what the critics are saying:
"The guitar heroics from Joe Perry...were sizzling, the rhythm section of Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton thunderous...and Steven Tyler's wide-mouth wail was soaked in its trademark blend of raunch and fire..."
--Sarah Rodman, BOSTON GLOBE, June 17, 2009
"Aerosmith did prove, yet again, that they can rock it like they did in their 20s...thunderous performance..."
--Chris Harris, ROLLINGSTONE.COM, June 29, 2009
"...Aerosmith was a lean mean hit machine¦with the best moments of the night coming when the Boston band reprised their now-classic record Toys in the Attic in its entirety. The music from that album--which features classics like ˜Walk This Way' and ˜Big Ten Inch Record'--was at its most tasty for ˜Sweet Emotion,' with the Toxic Twin magic of Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry at full power."
--Dan Aquilante, NEW YORK POST, June 29, 2009
