Hailed as one of the classic hard rock bands of all time, Aerosmith was one of those rare groups who clicked with the public from the beginning. This exciting evening of rare performances will celebrate their music with such songs as “Dream On,” “Sweet Emotions,” “Walk This Way,” “Janie’s Got a Gun,” “Love in an Elevator,” “Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” “Back in the Saddle,” and many more. Highlights will include live concerts, television appearances, and even some rehearsal footage. Aerosmith has survived more than four decades in the business, with a few member changes along the way, but Steven Tyler is still the singer-songwriter, frontman. Originally from New Hampshire, Tyler linked with Joe Perry as a writing partner, in much the same tradition as Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. They combined with Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer, and Brad Whitford, with others coming in for periods of time. The Boston-based band mixed blues, hard rock, pop, heavy metal, and R&B to create their own distinct sound. Their lyrics often challenged the status quo, touching upon political and social themes or depicting raw, sexual energy. Come and enjoy this one night only celebration of one of America’s greatest hard rock bands. (Approx: 110 minutes)
