You need to douse it in a 20/30/50 ratio of mustard/ketchup/horseradish and stroke it as fast as you can untill the mayonaise squirts out. Then consume.

There is not a chance in hell I am paying $200 to see Aerosmith play an hour and a half long set consisting of the same songs they've been playing in the past few years. We'll see if they live up to their word and play some stuff that hasn't been played in a while, but either way, I'm not going. Also, I could care less about ZZ Top.

INSANE ticket prices. I thought about going, but I could go to probably 3 equally cool shows for that money.


Edit: Billy Gibbons annoys me.

You could see Yes for free if you got your ass out to NJ.

I pretty much saw them for free when they played here last year, it was only $20.

^^$20 =/= free. Plus, you sat in the balcony. At this show, you'd be up close and personal. And you'd get free entry into Six Flags, which is a $50 value right there.

General service charge, convenience charge, building facility charge, processing charge, and an extra $2.50 thrown in if you print the tickets from home.

I was gonna go but I don't feel like I can con my dad out of $200, or even feel like I would want to go. Good bands but not $200 of good, especially since I saw Hubert Sumlin the other day for $20, and that was so good I can't play guitar now because I'm still absorbing it after 2 days.

Ahhh two of my favorite bands ever playing, but I'm afraid my dad isn't willing to pay that much money. =(. I'm just really hoping to win the tickets on the radio like I did for AC/DC back in December. I've called about a gazillion times and still keeping my ears open and my fingers crossed.

gotta make sacrifices for things... lol, find something close to school so you can walk from there if no one will drive you, I only have my permit but my parents can work it out and they both work so, its not impossible, or jack up your baby sitting prices, as long as no one else can take your block

I was thinking about going but $128 for the cheapest seats in the house in a huge stadium? No thanks.

Seen them twice already anyway... I'm sure they'll put on a wicked show though. They always do.

I personally think that they (Aerosmith) will be doing more of the 70s classic. I think they realized how bad their pop stuff was. Honkin on bobo was a step bakc in the right direction. Also, they are doing one of the first 3 albums all the way through as Ive heard. And Joe is finally going to be doing combination again. I hope they do Aerosmith or Get Your Wings

They'll be doing Toys. Tyler confirmed it. I'm not sure if I'm happy with that now that Brad is out for half the tour. It would suck to have Round and Round played for the first time live without Brad, who wrote it.
Quote by Polystant

Yeah he did it with his son's band, but given this band's history, there's no telling if that'll carry over into Aerosmith. That being said, I think chances are good that they'll play it this year. I really, really hope they do.

14. Round And Round
15. You See Me Crying
16. Livin' On The Edge
-------------------------------
17. What It Takes
18. Draw The Line

19. Train Kept A Rollin'

Or something very close to that.

^^Combination. COMBINATION. I can't tell you how much I love that song and how excited I am to finally see it on an Aerosmith setlist. Then throw in Uncly Salty, Round and Round, and You See Me Crying for the first time ever, the rarely played Adam's Apple, No More No More, 10 Inch, Sweet E, Train, Saddle, and Elevator...I'm very happy with the way that looks on paper. I mean, in a perfect world, I think they should replace Cryin', What It Takes, Draw the Line, Edge, and Falling in Love with Rats, Kings and Queens, Pandora's Box, Movin' Out, and Sick As A Dog, but I honestly can't complain about this proposed setlist.

Well folks, it has happened. Combination, Uncle Salty, and Round and Round made their live debuts tonight.

Monkey On My Back
Cryin'
Love In An Elevator
Dream On
Combination
Toys in the Attic
Uncle Salty
Adam's Apple
Walk This Way
Big 10 Inch Record
Sweet Emotion
No More No More
Round and Round
Livin' On The Edge
Draw the Line
Train Kept A Rollin'

Jaded and You See Me Crying were cut from the original setlist, the latter of which making the Toys album incomplete, a move which has me dumbfounded. That had to be Steven Tyler's decision.

There was a tornado warning so the concert got pushed back a whole hour. Considering the strict curfews in venues, losing an hour yet only cutting 2 songs is actually a good thing.

^^I understand that. But the idea was to play Toys in its entirety, so why cut You See Me Crying? Why not cut one of the other eight songs in the setlist not from the album?
