“Come here, baby.” That’s the East Coast’s message to the West regarding the upcoming visit by rock ‘n roll legends Aerosmith. A residency will begin at the Park MGM in Vegas in early-April, and the very unique tour allows the band to make it out East for shows near their hometown of Boston in August, where the fun began all the way back in 1970. An array of Aerosmith East Coast 2019 Tickets are now available to the general public.
The group will warm up with no less than nine performances in April at Park MGM, a place that currently bills itself online as Las Vegas’s newest hotel & casino. It utilizes European-style architecture and ambience, creating another place for millions of fun-seekers throughout North America and beyond to unwind for a weekend, a week or more. Legendary author Hunter S Thompson helped popularize the Las Vegas experience in the 1970s, while Aerosmith was rising to fame, although a few could ever possibly keep up with his pace in terms of taking in everything the region had to offer.
There are bounties of fun to be had in Sin City on any particular evening. Park MGM is officially located at 3770 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, and a gigantic renovation in 2016 gave it the ambitions to announce and proclaim itself as one of the newest venues.
Performing on the East Coast
Aerosmith is currently scheduled to play three August shows in National Harbor, Maryland at The Theater at MGM Grand Harbor. There is obviously a connection between the two venues located on opposite sides of the country, and these tour dates will unfold on August 8, August 10 and August 13. The fun will then go to Atlantic City, New Jersey for shows at The Event Center at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spot on the evenings of August 16 and August 18.
Springfield, Massachusetts will be the locale for four final East-coast performances on this tour that swings like the pendulum on a grandfather clock. These dates will unfold on August 21, 24, 26 and 29 at the Mass Mutual Center at MGM Springfield. Originally opened to the public at 1277 Main Street in Springfield back in 1972, it was also drastically renovated over the course of a few years in the early 21st century. It is home to several sporting squads, and has become comfortable with the many idiosyncrasies involved with hosting live music of this level.
Making it Before the Internet
Unlike the modern days of YouTube stardom – where young performers sometimes become famous within a few month’s time – the band originally formed in 1970 in Boston actually needed to work their craft for about a decade and prove their talents to locals before they could even entertain the idea of being a national professional success.
The group released their initial album in the early days of January, 1973. As was the case with many bands back then, it was self-entitled. It only rose as high as #21 on the American Billboard Charts. Their second release entitled Get Your Wings did not fare any better. 1975 Toys in the Attic climbed as high as #11 on the United States Billboard Charts and reached #7 on the Canadian Charts. Three more albums came in the 1970s that all registered in the top-15 in the United States, but it would be another full decade before the band would truly realize their artistic greatness and potential for generating fans and revenue.
The album Pump was released in September 1989, and it peaked his high as #5 on the US Billboard, while summiting the newly-established Australian Billboard Charts at #1. This paved the path for Get a Grip, which was released on April 20 of 1993. It was the first true smash hit for a band that had long been toiling on the edge of true American rock ‘n roll greatness.
Get a Grip featured Cryin’, Amazing and Crazy. They were three extremely powerful songs that demonstrated the talents of the band and front man Steven Tyler, as well as Alicia Silverstone, who at the time was a young aspiring model who starred in the biggest music video the band has created to date. All three of these songs are likely to be played during each set list on the East Coast run of a tour that begins soon with a Las Vegas residency.
The following Aerosmith album entitled Nine Lives also peaked at #1 in America, and three studio albums released in the 21st century have all reached the Top #5 on the American Billboard Charts. The ageless Tyler has always stayed close and connected to his bandmates, and all are excited about going out on the road with a tour and a set list that is sure to entertain.
