Aerosmith- The Boston Boys of Rock

Hubby and I took our 14-year old son to see his first concert last night.

Aerosmith. One of the few bands I’ve managed to miss seeing over the years, They were absolutely amazing!!

The Hometown rockers were resplendent. They played  all classic tracks including the entire Toys in the attic album straight through. I was in heaven. The set was shorter than I would have liked, at only 90 minutes, but it was performed to perfection, and with so much energy  and showmanship, that it’s hard to believe that they’re not still in their 20s! Steven Tyler had me grinning from the minute he walked out on the stage. And Joe Perry rocked the house.

Cameras weren’t allowed, so I didn’t bring mine, but when I got there, almost everyone had one! Arghhh. But I found these pics on the web, and thanks to an amazing photographer named Annie Zeleski, you’ve got a front row seat. These are from the June 10th St. Louis show, but everything was the same last night, right down to the clothing.  Find the rest of her photos here: hndinglove’s Flicker

We originally had Lawn seats waaaaaay in the back of the venue, but thanks to the fans who didn’t want to come out on a Tuesday night, the show still had open seats, and we upgraded our tickets to amazing seats with a center view much closer to the stage.  Thanks to the fans who have grown old , and thanks to the band that hasn’t!!!

We owe you one!
