Aerosmith would be performing in Bangalore on June 2. There are different categories of tickets by Aeroforce One this time.....There's a category for a back stage tour as well .....I can harly wait to catch Tyler perform 'Dream On', 'Janie's got a gun' n stuff.
Finallllllllyyyyyyyyy.....the Bad Boys from Boston did get their first 'Taste of India'......I'm real glad to have made it to this one....it was an electrifying experience.....Steven Tyler is still the schoolkid.....oh boy! it was raw energy unleashed.....definitely making a point that age is just a number. With the trademark scarf round the mikestand, he was running all around the stage, teasing and tantalising the audience. He clinched it with "How are you feeling, Bangalore?" followed by "Hamara dil aapke paas hai" ....The crowd just went wild. The opener was Taste Of India , being played live for the first time in about seven years. Then there was Love In An Elevator, Eat The Rich and Cryin'....but the most defining song of the evening was Dream On, the anthem that had made Aerosmith. This was followed by Livin' On The Edge and then an animation intro to Walk This Way. "The best thing that India has given to the world is not the Vindaloo, not the elephant ride....but what Aerosmith appreciates the most-the Kama Sutra"-- was what Mr. Joe Fuckin' Perry had to say before diving into Stop Messin' Around....By now Steven had managed a pagdi(that's an Indian headgear) and was sayin' Namaste (again an Indian greeting) to the crowd....he wrapped it up with I don't Wanna Miss A Thing....honestly the last song was a bit disappointing thing for me....I'd really really expected them to finish off with Janie's Got A Gun or Dude Looks Like A Lady.....But then, this is just their first concert....who knows--maybe I'd get lucky the next time
Turn on, tune in, drop out.

Thanks for the great review, Sayak!
I'm delighted that the fans received a good show and that Aerosmith had the class to make it a special show for the Indian fans. That's fantastic.
