Aerosmith touches down in Manila May 8


Finally, after 43 years, one of the most enduring rock bands in modern music history, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Aerosmith, has included Manila in its itinerary.

The one-night show, part of the band’s “The Global Warming World Tour” concerts, is set May 8 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

This was announced Tuesday night on the local organizer Pulp Live Productions’ YouTube Channel. Aerosmith’s website shows that Manila has been added to their ongoing world tour stops, which also include Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.

Hard rock

The quintet of Tom Hamilton (bassist), Joey Kramer (drummer), Joe Perry (lead guitarist), Brad  Whitford (guitarist), and vocalist Steven Tyler (arguably its best-known and notorious member) hard-rocked its way into becoming the best-selling American rock band of all time, having sold more than 150 million albums worldwide. Aerosmith also holds the record for the most gold and multiplatinum albums by an American group. The band has had 21 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, four Grammy Awards, and 10 MTV Video Music Awards.

The band has been included on Rolling Stone’s and VH1’s lists of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

Aerosmith introduced to the world the unmistakably loud, raspy vocals of Tyler in hits such as “Dream On,” “Janie Got a Gun,”  “Amazing,” “Dude (Looks Like a Lady),” “Cryin,” “Crazy,” its  collaboration with Run DMC for the funk-rock “Walk This Way,” and “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” from the doomsday movie “Armageddon.”

    last time i looked, mabenta pa rin last album nila sa US certified silver since Nov 2012. kung laos na sila bakit marami paring bumibili ng album kahit sa US eh since 70’s pa sila?
    kung suckers tayo e di mga australians na manonood at nanood last year sa US mga suckers din. ok lang, kesa naman sa type nyo na si justin bieber–yan di laos at di old iskulbukol kya papanoorin nyo tyak.

      Well, considering they had 5x and 7x platinum albums in the 70s, 80s and early 90s, laos na nga.  Their last album was barely a Gold.  Mataas ang standard ng album sales dito sa US..kaya pag hindi ka man lang nag Platinum, laos na talaga.  Plus I remember when I was in high school here in the 80s, halos lahat ng mga kids had Aerosmith t-shirts..ngayon, One Direction suot ng mga bata..ha..ha..ha..well, atleast yung mga girls…the boys wear sports shirts…

        tsk tsk…reading what you wrote, di mo nga alam ibig sabihin ng laos. comparing aerosmith with one direction, alam mo ba genre ng 2 grupong ito. considering that aerosmith was able to sell at least more than 100albums in this day and age of digital downloads, of youtube fame, meme & torrents, bigtime pa rin.
        if aerosmith can still fill up a concert hall after being here for more than 3 decades, laos kaya tawag dun?

  • Axzar

    Look for the cancellation soon. Top tickets are $500. Kiss my puet!

  • Echuserang_Froglet

    magkano ang ticket aber? mga laos na ito noh. ppppppppwwweeeehhh kadiri eeeeeeewwwwwww

  • sopingac

    Rock fans in their mid-30’s and up can relate with Aerosmith. No way they are considered “laos”, their longevity and crowd-drawing power is still very high. Record sales these days are nowhere near during the peak of their careers.

    Aerosmith still rocks!!!  Mga bakla lang ang hindi makasabay sa mga orihinal na mga ROKERS.
