OH YEAH! Aerosmith at the Calling Festival

OH YEAH! Aerosmith at the Calling Festival

June 28, 2014 – The day had finally arrived where I would get the opportunity to see one of the bands that I was raised on, the Big Ones, Aerosmith.

I had already decided that it was going to be sunny (it wasn’t) and that I Didn’t Wanna Miss A Thing. We got there early enough to secure a spot by the barriers in the commoners general admission.

The day went by quickly and we were surrounded by friendly people who we could chat away to. Richie Sambora opened up with the Bon Jovi classic ‘Lay Your Hands On Me’ (you’re good but no thanks Richie!) and went on to do a great set. Thunder then took the centre stage and got the crowd going, I was pleasantly surprised to see them perform ‘Low Life In High Places’ off the ‘Laughing on Judgement Day’ album. Joe Bonamassa then took his place and as fantastic as he is – I just wanted Aerosmith at this point.

Then the time came – OH MY GOD! Emotional wasn’t the word! Seeing Steven Tyler and Joe Perry taking to that runway was one of the most amazing things that I had ever witnessed, and just check out this Crazy setlist:

1 Mama Kin
2 Eat The Rich
3 Love In An Elevator
4 Oh Yeah
5 Cryin’
6 Livin’ On The Edge
7 Last Child
8 Rag Doll
9 Freedom Fighter
10 Same Old Song And Dance
11 Rats In The Cellar
12 I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing
13 No More No More
14 Come Together
15 Dude (Looks Like A Lady)
16 Walk This Way
—Encore—
17 Dream On
18 Sweet Emotion

Their time on stage was over all too quickly! I can’t even listen to ‘Sweet Emotion’ now without choking. If I EVER get the opportunity to see them again, I will. It’s not a want it is a NEED – I NEED to see them again. They were everything I had hoped for and had waited my whole life to see.
