WILL AEROSMITH PERFORM ‘TOYS’ IN ITS ENTIRETY?:
April 23, 2009
Dave Basner of VH1 Classic Rock reports that this summer, Judas Priest plan to perform their album British Steel in its entirety at their live shows, Motley Crue will play all of Dr Feelgood at Crue Fest gigs and Aerosmith very well might be following the trend. Joe Perry says the band is pretty close to deciding if they’re going to perform one of their classic records in its entirety when they hit the road in June.
(Actuality #1) “Well let’s just say we’re closer to it than ever before. I’m not sure which record it would be but we’ve kind of narrowed it down. I bet we’ll end up doing it but we won’t know until we’re in the actual rehearsal studio.”
If Aerosmith does decide to play a full album live, Joe told us which he’d like them to perform.
(Actuality #2) “I don’t know. I think Toys in the Attic would be fun. We do a lot of songs off the first four records anyway. We’ve jammed on ‘Uncle Salty’ onstage a few times. I don’t know. The later records with more songs on them, they would take up too much time in the set. We need to leave some room for some of the other standards.”
The world will know what Aerosmith decides to do sometime before June 10th. On that day, the rockers kick off their tour with ZZ Top in St. Louis, Missouri. For all the dates, Click HERE!
