Aerosmith and Cheap Trick will end 2012 playing together through November and December. Cheap Trick played with Aerosmith as the opener during the summer concert dates during the Global Warming Tour, but eventually the two famed groups from the 1970s had to end. Aerosmith was not going to stop headlining one of the biggest nostalgia tours of the summer and Cheap Trick had a few headlining gigs of their own.
Well, the weather has cooled the concert season is coming to an end and the road warriors find themselves on the same path again. This is not going to be like it was when these groups first met in the 1970s. Then they would take turns opening for a much bigger band. Well, Aerosmith is undoubtedly the bigger fish of the two, but Cheap Trick is not so small a fish they do not get any recognition. Officially, the concert tickets read Aerosmith and Cheap Trick tickets.
If the fall concert series plays out just as it did during the summer, though one band is definitely going to be drawing more fans than other, the groups will mingle during the night. At times Steven Tyler and Brad Whitford of Aerosmith would join Cheap Trick to help with a hit like “I Want You To Want Me” and Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander would come to help “Walk This Way”. This kind of camaraderie makes this event something truly special.
Now, there is another reason the Aerosmith and Cheap Trick shows are not all about nostalgia is Aerosmith has a new album. Music from Another Dimension! Is due out on November 6, 2012 and will be the 15th studio album from these Boston rockers. It is the first album from the group in six years. Recorded last over the course of a year in between legs of the Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock Tour and personal projects, such as American Idol, the new material is going to get some stage time during the remainder of this tour. “Legendary Child”, “Lover A lot”, and “What Could Have Been Love” have reached the radio waves so far and they the likely additions to the set list.
