26 years ago today, Aerosmith rocked a sold out show at the Civic Center! It was the Permanent Vacation tour still ragin' on. The photo above is from the Augusta show on that same tour. That's my wife (girlfriend at the time) Sherry and me (in the Mickey shirt) along with our Augusta peeps, Shannon Kenney (next to Sherry) and Brian Rouillard. And oh yeah, (left to right) Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer, Brad Whitford, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Aero FREAKIN' smith!!

As I remember, Guns N' Roses was scheduled to open on this Portland date. As fate would have it, they became headliners and a new Boston band called Extreme was added instead.

Join us tonight at 5:20 in the Big Red Love Van for the WBLM Mini-Concert with Aerosmith!
