Being from the Martimes and now living in Calgary, I’m still impressed by the amounts of amazing acts that come to Calgary. So far this year I’ve seen: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elton John, The Dixie Chicks and last night I saw Aerosmith! And that’s all in the past 3 months. Why do I go to so many concerts? Well basically as long as they are not Great Big Sea, I will go to them. After living in Fredericton for so long, I was often subjected to the one concert that came to town every year. That concert being Great Big Sea. Don’t get me wrong, I love a jig as much as the next guy, but I too have my limits.

I think this was my first real ROCK concert. I saw a taping of Supernova in the summer, but I don’t think that counts, because it was 8am and I had a coffee in hand. That and Brooke Burke is a total ROBOT. So going to the Aerosmith concert was almost like going to school again cause I learned alot about the Rock world!

The first thing I learned was that Motley Crue hates cotton. Why else weren’t they wearing shirts? I mean all their pyrotechnics really heated the Saddledome up, but I thought no shirts at all was a little excessive. During their act I got to thinking that if I was related to Nikki Sixxe (Sp?), I would buy him a T-Shirt every christmas. He would of get mad and scream “God Mike, Don’t you know I hate Clothes!” And I would sit back and enjoy watching him flip out…ahhh good times. Oh right back to the concert. People love the Tommy Lee, but at one point he went into the audience and passed around a bottle of tequilla for the audience to enjoy. Really People? Who would drink that? That’s like Aquafina bottleling AIDS and then selling it. We’ve all seen the movie Tommy, I ain’t drinking that shit. Motley was also very classy. I don’t know whether it was the girls dancing in cages only to later be riding tricycles in bikinis, but these guys put Geri Halliwel to shame!

Alright now onto the main event. Aerosmith. The first thing I noticed that Alicia Silverstone was missing. Isn’t she in the band? Oh well, maybe she was saving a Moose. We had great seats to the side of the stage. We saw that Steven Tyler drinks Coke backstage. (A nice change from the other Coke.) We also saw him spit right in a Roadie’s face and later apoligize. I think I saw the roadie bottle that nasty phlem to sell on Ebay. Keep your eyes open. As you’ve already read below, Sarah and Jessica got front row tickets from one of the concert promoters, for just being so sexy. So me and Jay just rocked it out in our seats!
I can’t believe that at the ripe age of 135 Steven Tyler can still rock out so much! I can only hope to have that much energy tomorrow, let alone 111 years from now! Also Steven Tyler is skinny! He makes me look like Kirstie Allie! I got to thinking that maybe Liv isn’t his daughter, but that Nicole Ritchie most definalty is. It would certainly explain alot!

Can you spot the Pink wig?

I had an amazing time! It was crazy. I was trying to decide out of the concerts I saw this year, which one was the best. I couldn’t decide so I awarded the prize to the homeless man in front of Starbucks, who sings innappropriate versions of Christmas Carols. I’m pretty that’s not how Mary got pregnant. Look at the some pictures of the night. Finding Sarah and Jessica’s wigs was like finding Waldo. If waldo had been wearing a low cut shirt and flashing his business.

Sarah and Jessica even made it onto the Aerosmith Website! Check it out!

Here’s some videos! Keep an eye out for the wigs and me butchering lyrics!
