Aerosmith Music From Another Dimension

Aerosmith Music From Another Dimension

That band from Boston is back, and some say better than ever.  Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) will start the second leg of The Global Warming Tour November 8. A 14-city arena tour lasting a month will take the band from New York City (Madison Square Garden), to Los Angeles (Staples Center) and lots of cities in between. There will be two stops on the tour in cities like Oklahoma City and the Intrust Arena in Wichita, KS where Live Nation hasn’t penetrated the market yet.  They are playing a lot of their greatest hits along with songs from their new album MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION. That album will be available to buy  November 6 on Columbia Records. Never before has such an icon band toured this late in their career with the original line up.

Cheap Trick will be the opening act, of what promises to be a fantastic show.  Tickets sales start Monday, September 24 at 10:00 AM (local time) at LiveNation.  American Express card members can get advance tickets beginning this Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 AM (local time).  For VIP ticket packages, including opportunities to meet band members, backstage tours, great tickets and more, visit  There is also a Facebook pre-sale on Friday, September 21; fans who visit and RSVP to the presale will have early access to tickets.

MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION–is AEROSMITH’s 15th studio album and their first studio album of all-new material in 11 years, a long time for die hard fans. The album was recorded in LA and at the band’s studio in Massachusetts; it was produced by Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, with the exception of three tracks produced by Tyler and Marti Frederiksen. It appears Tyler and Perry have put behind them whatever differences they have, for the good of the band. In recent interview on 60 minutes both spoke of how creative they can be together, and how each feels they’ve wronged the other. Tyler was also very outspoken about how the band needed him far more than he needed them. It seems the more things change, the more they stay the same.

“For the singer Steven Tyler, a microphone stand is a maypole, a hobbyhorse, a dance partner, a weapon and an all-purpose Freudian symbol; his outfit also included a studded codpiece. For the guitarist Joe Perry, his longtime partner in Aerosmith’s production and songwriting, a mere trill or squiggle in a solo can set off arenawide squeals of joy, especially when he delivers it rearing back as if he were aiming at the balconies, with a fan blowing through his white-streaked hair…[Tyler is]…an unstoppable vocalist who was belting, howling, letting loose falsetto whoops or barking rhymes at proto-hip-hop speed.” –Jon Pareles, NEW YORK TIMESJuly 2, 2012

“Perry remains one of rock’s great guitarists. He shredded magnificently all night, and his lap steel playing on ‘Rag Doll’ was elegantly understated. He and Brad Whitford traded licks on ‘Cryin’ that brought the house down, aided in no small part by Tyler’s harmonica playing and his scarifying, howling vocals…The underappreciated rhythm section of Joey Kramer and Tom Hamiltonanchored the band, keeping the chaos under control. Hamilton’s a monster bassist.” –Bill Brotherton, BOSTON HERALDJuly 18, 2012

“The one-two punch of new song ‘Oh Yeah’ (from the forthcoming, aptly named Music From Another Dimension) followed by the nasty-grooved classic ‘Last Child’ portends good things for future gigs that I expect will be filled out with even more new tunes. (Another new offering, the in-the-Aeropocket ‘Legendary Child,’ made me hungry to hear more Dimension cuts.).” –Mike Mettler, SOUNDANDVISIONMAG.COMJuly 25, 2012

“…Aerosmith was in the zone, putting on an arena show in all its glory…By the time Perry climbed on top of Tyler’s piano during the first encore of ‘Dream On,’ the audience was ready for the show to go on all night.” –Candace Horgan, DENVER POSTAugust 2, 2012

“…muscular, high-spirited, two-hour set…Lead guitarist Joe Perry…played with impassioned intensity.” –Gene Stout, SEATTLE TIMESAugust 9, 2012

“…Steven Tyler is simply a wonder to behold…The band sounded fantastic…” –Darryl Smyers,DALLAS OBSERVERJuly 30, 2012

“It takes two to rock–an audience and a band. However, when the band is as perfect as Aerosmith, the crowd doesn’t have to do much to impress. That was the case in this instance. Aerosmith put on such a flawless performance that even the most jaded Los Angeles collective of industry types, celebrities, and fans barely left its feet. Being introduced by comic book legend Stan Lee proved rather a propos as at this point Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, and Joey Kramer remain superheroes in their own right. Immediately, the Boston trailblazers ignited the raucous riff stomp of ‘Draw the Line’…It sounded just as fiery as it does on record due to the group’s immortal chemistry.” –Rick Florino, ARTISTDIRECT.COMAugust 7, 2012

“Tyler’s voice had not lost even a bit of its power and range…But what may have been the best surprise of the evening was how well two new tracks fit into the set. ‘Oh Yeah’ was an engaging bluesy groove, after which Tyler hugged Perry, and the band’s new single ‘Legendary Child,’ sounded like it could have come straight off 1976’s Rocks, or if not, at least ’93’s Get A Grip…Make no mistake, Aerosmith remains king.” –Frank Valish, UNDERTHERADARMAGAZINE.COM, August 7, 2012
