Aerosmith May Play ‘Toys In The Attic’ In Its Entirety When They Hit The Road
The craze for a touring band to play one of their classic albums in its entirety is reaching fever pitch, with Judas Priest, Mötley Crüe and now Aerosmith threatening to follow the trend.
This summer in the US, Priest plan to perform their album British Steel from beginning to end at their live shows, and the Crüe will play all of Dr Feelgood at Crüe Fest gigs.
Meanwhile, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry says the band are pretty close to deciding if they’re going to perform one of their classic records in its entirety when they hit the road in June.
“Well, let’s just say we’re closer to it than ever before,” Perry told VH1 Classic Radio.
“I’m not sure which record it would be, but we’ve kind of narrowed it down. I bet we’ll end up doing it but we won’t know until we’re in the actual rehearsal studio.”
Aerosmith kick off their tour with ZZ Top in St. Louis, Missouri on June 10.
Perry continued: “I think Toys In The Attic would be fun. We do a lot of songs off the first four records anyway.
“We’ve jammed on Uncle Salty on stage a few times. I don’t know. The later records with more songs on them, they would take up too much time in the set. We need to leave some room for some of the other standards.
Hmm… which band would you like to see playing which of its classic albums in its entirety on a future tour? Post your comments!
