Aerosmith returned to the street where their career started for a special hometown show ahead of their brand new album launch.
The band had lived together on Commonwealth Ave. in Allston, Boston. The song "Movin' Out" from their debut album was written about the apartment they shared there.
They arrived via Duck Boat, and soon took to the stage in front of a crowd of thousands, kicking off with "Walkin' The Dog", according to Ultimate Classic Rock.
Between performances of other hits like "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion", the band took turns to talk about their memories from living in the neighborhood.
They also performed a few tracks from their new album "Music From Another Dimension", including "Oh Yeah" and "Lover Alot".
The new album is officially released today (November 6). It is their first LP release since "Honkin' On Bobo" in 2004.
Last week, frontman Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry were on The Late Show with David Lettermandiscussing their early days and the lure of hard drugs.
"We were an army marching on", said Tyler. "We were raping and pillaging and going from town to town... and when it's done, you don't go back and go bowling, or knit in your room. You drink, it feels good, you may have some cocaine, it feels good."
