Rock band Aerosmith has held a free concert in front of their former apartment in Boston, as part of promoting their new CD.
Composed of Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer and Tom Hamilton, Aerosmith were police escorted to the performance area while riding a duck boat, on top of which they performed.
The concert venue was in front of their old apartment building on 1325 Commonwealth Avenue in Alliston. It was here that the band was said to have penned and composed some of Aerosmith's earliest hits.
Their performance started at around noon, to which Tyler commented, "You know when we lived here, we were never up this early." Their audience included a sea of lucky fans and residents who peeked through their windows to watch.
Joan Pasquale, 62, told Boston.com that she lived in the building during the 70's, around the time Aerosmith was also there. She said, "I don't want to ruin their bad-boy reputation here, but they were very nice, polite guys - really nice neighbors."
The band performed tracks from their earlier albums such as "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion". They sang only a couple of songs from their new album.
Aerosmith has been in the music industry for four decades and have released various chart-topping albums and singles since then. "Music From Another Dimension!" is released Tuesday. This is their first studio album in eight years.
