Aerosmith – Park Theater – Las Vegas NV : June 24th 2019

 

Aerosmith is probably one of the best live rockin’ bands in the world. They have been going at it for nearly 50 years and the guys are getting up there in age, but they completely brought the house down tonight at the Park Theater in Las Vegas.

The show started with about a 30 minute video of the beginnings of the band and how they all met and how everything came together…kind of fate and like it was meant that these guys got together just to make the best damn music of their generation and for generations to come. They came on around 8:30 or so and opened with Train Kept a-Rollin’ followed by Draw the Line and Rag Doll. The setlist was full of massive hits, but of course with a library as extensive as theirs, there is no way they could play them all. My Favorites of the night were Toys in the Attic, where all the giant inflatable, scary toys came down from the ceiling above the crowd…very cool. And then all three of their encore songs were my very favorite with Dream On, Chip Away at the Stone and Walk this way, where a huge walkway came down from the rafters which allowed Steven Tyler and Joe Perry to walk all the way to the second level of the theater and perform the song. During the end of show they released a ton of huge balloons, and a ton of confetti…it was spectacular. There were even two points in the show where (at different times) Steven Tyler and Tom Hamilton both walked out into the crowd and sang and played right in front of me…how cool is that!

An absolutely incredible show at an amazing venue with awesome sound. So very glad we made the trip down to see them at this residency.
