Legendary rock band Aerosmith has just announced a Las Vegas residency at the Park MGM’s Dolby Live Theater in Las Vegas Nevada. Remember when we used to make fun of our parents who went to Las Vegas to see Wayne Newton or Paul Anka. Well, the times have changed dramatically since then as rock and roll and pop acts have been flocking to Las Vegas to perform residencies in recent years. The smaller theaters that artists like Engelbert Humperdinck and the rest of the gang used to play have turned into lavish concert theaters that also sell huge lavish concert tickets complete with VIP treatment at mortgage payment prices. It all goes hand in hand.

Concert residencies actually make a lot of sense in today’s covid world. It’s a lot safer for a musical act to settle down in one town for a month or longer. There is a far less chance of getting covid staying put than flying on plans all around the world. We have to remember these rock and roll bands like Aerosmith are all at the age where they are at high risk for serious covid complications. We already just had a big-time rock star pass away from covid, we don’t want to lose any more.

The Aerosmith residency at the Park MGM’s Dolby Live Theater in Las Vegas Nevada will begin on June 17th, 2022. The band will perform shows on June 17, 23, 26, 29, and July 2, 5, and 8th. The band will take a break and then return for another series of shows on September 14, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29, and October 2nd and 5th. Once again the band will take a break as Drake performs his residency in between the Aerosmith shows. The group will restart their residency for another series of shows on November 19, 23, 26, 29, and December 2, 5, 8, 11, for a total of twenty-four shows over a four-month residency. The only other act scheduled to play at the Park MGM’s Dolby Live Theater besides Drake during the Aerosmith residency is the The Who. Peter and Roger will do two shows in November at the theater on the 4th and 5th of the month.

Aerosmith’s European fans will not be happy to hear the news of the Las Vegas residency because it also carries the news that Aerosmith has canceled their planned European tour that had already been postponed a few times due to covid.

Being billed as the Deuces are Wild tour, we wonder if the setlist will change every night or will be the exact same set of songs that many acts who perform Las Vegas residences adhere to. Quite often the theatrical presentation and light shows tend to force groups to stick to the standard playlist because of lighting cues and more. It will be interesting to see what Aerosmith does during the shows. Will it be all the hits, or will they dig deep into their legendary Columbia catalog?

The theater that Aerosmith will be playing only holds 5200 seats. Fans will be getting a chance to see Aerosmith in a much smaller venue than the stadium and arena gis that we are used to seeing the band perform in. That’s a big plus. The theater also boasts about its Dolby Atmos sound system offering ticket holders an audio experience unlike any other theater. In addition, there are seven bars in the theater and views of the Las Vegas strip. Sound like a fun place to see a show.
