I’ve been to hundreds, wait, change that to probably thousands of concerts since my mother took me to my first one some 28 years ago (Nov. 9, 1984 to be exact) when Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five came to the Houston Astrodome for the Victory Tour. OK, you get the point  — lots of shows. But as many as I’ve been to, I’ve never had the opportunity to see Aerosmith, until now.
