    +1 Such a sweet combination.
    i hope they come to stoon...i had floor when aerosmith was gonna come last spring, then steve tylers throat got all f'ed up...and i woulndt mind seeing velvet revolver either
    i saw aerosmith when they were on tour with motley crue. motley crue absolutly sucked(sorry crue fans). but aero was on it. and aero isnt going to split, they just released 3 new songs that rock, and there's rumors floating around about a new album in the works.
    WoW, This is almost a dream come true. To bad they wont be coming to Minnesota. If they were, I'd die a happy man.
    Awww, I just saw Aerosmith, but they were with Motley Crue. I'd much rather see Velvet Revolver with them. A lotttt more, in fact. Ah well. Coolness nonethless.
    prolly wont come to indiana just like every other band in the country so im really upset
    Aerosmith are still killing it at live shows. They aren't as old as the Stones and they're definately enjoying themselves still. As well, Velvet Revolver...thats just another discussion completely. On topic, however, I wish I still lived in South America.
    what the hell? why doesn't anything this good come to the UK! I soo wanna go see Aerosmith, and when they were touring with Crue, I was so happy then found out its only in america. now with VR I was even Happier. but thats just in south america. ... are Aerosmith touring different continents with different awesome bandds ??
    Sounds cool... Again, lucky south americans. Still, a lil bit weird - Aerosmith have just finished a major tour with Motley Crue, and are just setting off with VR. I thought they'd split up ('Smith), as I hadn;t heard anythng about em since 'i don't wanna miss a thing' came out...
    last time i had aerosmith tickets they cancelled their show for tylers vocal problems and never returned to that venue, thus i have lost all respect for aerosmith. kudos to vr and i hope the sophmore album is excellent

    Yeah, damn right! I'm not a massive fan of either band but i do really like them both. What do you say GNRmetfan1290 start protesting? =p
    I think they need to come to the US. You know what, screw it. FULL WORLD TOUR. How awesome would that be?
    Can't wait for Libertad. Hope it's good. Aerosmith and VR would be kick ass. Lucky S. Americans!
    ahhh i moved to the US from Colombia 10 years ago, and now i wanna go back to watch this awesome showwwww
