Aerosmith + The Cribs Part 1 @ Paris Bercy June 29 2010

@ Paris Bercy June 219 2010
Part 1

Part 2 ( here)
The Cribs Feat. Johnny Marr

We're getting into Bercy as The Cribs is starting playing, I really wonder what the hell they're doing here opening for Aerosmith.
It might be a rock band but their music has nothing to do with our rockers from Boston.
They are wwaaaayyy to English, even though they've done a decent set no need to tell you that the audience wasn't impressed at all.
They're a club or theatre band certainly NOT an arena band and the music is average.
Some members of The Cribs were watching Aero's set with some of their friends on the side.
Nice to see Aerosmith back in Paris after all the things that went on those last few months with Steven Tyler. It would have been "funny" to see Aero without Tyler ( personal opinion).
Anyway, TYLER is back and kicking ass like never before.

Steven "close-up" Tyler

Bercy is not sold-out but packed.
Really good start with " Love in an elevator" &" Back in the saddle" unfortunatelly things are getting ugly early in the show.
First the sound isn't that good, too much vocals and not enough guitars, hard to hear Joe's guitar clearly.

The stage set up apart from the huge screens in the back is very poor , the lightning's stunning But what is VERY disappointing is the shitty setlist, tonight we had all the shit from the late 80's early 90's : "falling in love", "pink", "what it takes", "jaded", "crying"," rag doll","I don't want to miss a thing" ...
The Toxic Twins

AERO have done so many great songs, how is it possible to play so many shitty songs in just one set ? Are they trying to punish us or what ?

Steven is back and is looking really fit & rocking like never before and telling funny things between songs or in the middle of the songs.
There's an "ego" catwalk in the middle of the pit and Steven is always on it, Joe is also joining him very often too.
Steven's voice is not as great as before but he's making the show, the mother fucker's a real showman, one of the best.
