America’s greatest rock band delivered absolutely killer sets on the first leg of their triumphant, sold-out Global Warming Tour, with critics dropping comments like “stunning”, jaw-dropping”, “impassioned intensity”, “seamless swagger”, “epic rock moments”, “a wonder to behold”, “Aerosmith always managed to reinvent itself for the masses without losing its inherent musicality”, “Make no mistake, Aerosmith remains king.”
They aren’t done yet. More prisoners will be taken when Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums) return for the second leg of The Global Warming Tour launching November 8. The month-long, 14-city arena tour will take the band across country, including a stop at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on December 11 at 7:30 PM.
They’re fully armed with career-defining hits and blazing songs from their new album “Music From Another Dimension” out November 6 on Columbia Records. They’re the only band of their stature with all-original members who are playing better than ever.
“Music From Another Dimension,” recently chosen by People magazine (9-17-12) as one of “5 Must Have Albums For Fall,” marks Aerosmith’s 15th studio album and is the first studio album in 11 years to feature all-new material from the band. The album was recorded in Los Angeles 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. The album abounds with one highlight after another, including “Out Go The Lights,” “Oh Yeah,” “Luv XXX,” “We All Fall Down,” “Street Jesus” and “Can’t Stop Loving You,” on which Tyler duets with Carrie Underwood. The album also includes “Freedom Fighter” which features Johnny Depp on backing vocals. The album’s first two singles have been released simultaneously and are now lighting up the airwaves. “What Could Have Been Love” is impacting on Hot AC stations and “Lover A Lot” on Rock, Active Rock, and Classic Rock stations.
