Set the wayback machine for 2009, Mr. Peabody. You’ll recall Aerosmith were headed our way for a show at the White River Amphitheatre, on a tour where they’d been doing all of their classic Toys in the Attic and/or Rocks albums. Then shortly after being filmed by a fan loading up at the liquor store (It wasn’t for him! Really!), Steven injured himself falling off the stage at the legendary Buffalo Chip Campground at the annual Black Hills Motorcycle Classic near Sturgis, S.D., and the rest of the tour was cancelled. Since then, Steven has taken a gig on American Idol, done a solo song for the soundtrack to a Japanese live-action “Starblazers” movie, and even done a few shows in Asia and South America with Aerosmith who he’d been rumored to be breaking up with, but Seattle area fans have been left waiting. Now apparently in order to kiss and make up, Aerosmith are playing the Tacoma Dome Wednesday August 8th, and bringing with them one of America’s other great rock and roll treasures, Cheap Trick.

“The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with your mothers”, says Steven Tyler in a press release that wasn’t creepy at all until that quote. Still, this is going to be one great little rock and roll show.
