Sound: The band sounded phenomenal! Steven Tyler's screams were the highest I've heard them in years. Joe Perry was playing great as was Whitford. Joey Kramer worked his set to the fullest. Hamilton had a nice bass solo near the end of the show. The sound just hit me right from the minute they started playing "Toys in the Attic" (the first song on the set list). // 10
Perfomance: The band put on a great performance (as always). The band made an incredible entrance in the audience and walked right by me and my friends. They climbed up to a small stage which was set up right in the center of the arena. They played a few songs up there before heading to the main stage. The main stage had paths leading out each side where Joe and Steven played/sang during a couple songs. Steven also swung around from this bar (I saw HIM do it once before on the KISS/Aerosmith tour). // 10
Overall Impression: I went to the April 3 show in Ft. Lauderdale, FL at the Office Depot Center. I paid $55 for the lower level seats which were just great! Cheap Trick opened the show but put on a lousy performance. The guitarist has no charisma at all. It seemed during the show he was more worried about throwing out picks than playing his guitar. They started off slow but got better (they only have one or two good songs). The guitars were crazily cool though.
Aerosmith made up for any bad band I'd ever seen, though! They just really rocked the Office Depot Center that night and I would definately go see them the next time they came down to South Florida. // 10
