Comments: I’ve taken this set from another show on the same tour a month earlier. Sorry to all the Fuel fans out there but they were pretty unremarkable as an opening act. By it’s very nature, opening acts are a thankless position to be in. The crowd are, by and large, here to see the headliners. So you had best be pretty freaking good if you want to make any kind of dent.

Rhonda and I had told our friend Stefan about how great Aerosmith were in concert. So much so that he ultimately asked if we could pick him up a couple of extra tickets the next time the Bad Boys from Boston came to town. He and his wife to be, Christina, joined us for a fun afternoon down by the beautiful shores of dead fish strewn Lake Ontario. While sitting at a watering hole in Ontario Place, we heard the band come out and sound check a number of songs. Some of which ended up in the show that night, some of which didn’t. When the time came, we made our way to our seats.

Right from the get go, Stef was really into the show. How can you not love blues infused rock ‘n’ roll played very near the pain threshold? About midway through he turned to Rhonda and I and mouthed “This is great!” What can I tell you, Rhonda and I beamed like proud parents. A new fan of the ‘Smith had been born. The show itself was excellent. Beyond Beautiful was a fantastic opener, made even more poignant in a matter of mere months when Aerosmith once again resumed their tour after 9-11. Sometimes a song written for one reason becomes representative of a completely different inspiration somewhere down the line. I loved the three or four bars of Uncle Salty that they played as intro to Sweet Emotion. Joe Perry had issues with his guitar during Train and smashed the first one to the stage before getting a replacement and finishing off the song.
