With over 70 combined years of making music and touring, Aerosmith and Cheap Trick haven’t lost their edge one bit.
Making a stop in Philadelphia Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center for their “Global Warming Tour,” Aerosmith and Cheap Trick proved that rock ‘n’ roll is alive and kicking.
Cheap Trick served as the opening act, playing a slew of their staples like “Surrender,” “Dream Police” and “I Want You To Want Me,” with Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler coming out to assist on the vocals.
It wasn’t just Tyler who came out during their set. Guitarist Brad Whitford strummed along during their performance of “Ain’t That A Shame.”
Trick’s lead vocalist Robin Zanders, decked out in a Pavaratti-inspired, soldier’s jacket, has some amazing vocals at 59. There wasn’t a song he performed where he didn’t sound like the original recording.
And it wouldn’t be a Cheap Trick concert without Rick Nielsen bringing out his signature five-neck guitar.
Following a quick setup, Aerosmith took the stage for an over two-hour set that combined the good, the better, and the best.
Swinging around his signature scarf-laced microphone stand, Tyler belted some of Aerosmith’s greatest songs, like “Love in an Elevator,” “Cryin’ ” and “Rag Doll.”
Known as the “demon of screamin’,” Tyler’s vocals, like Zander’s, are still incredible even after 35 years of performing, and screaming.
Coupled with his flamboyant stage presence, Tyler knows how to get the audience engaged and to get everyone rocking and rolling for a solid two hours. Legendary guitarist Joe Perry took the reigns providing the lead vocals on the track “Combination,” and contributed greatly to the overly long instrumental piece “Boogie Man.”
