« SXSW redux: History isn't repeating itself |
| On the way: Mariachi El Bronx »
Monday the stalwart rock band from Boston, now in its fifth decade, announced a 19-show, 50-day Global Warming Tour, and the closest it gets to KC is Milwaukee, Dallas and Denver.

Oh what a loss for Kansas City.

Kind of stinks since they did cancel their last show here...

im all broken up about this
March 27, 2012 at 09:39 AM
Saw them in the 70's and they sucked, still the worst concert I have ever seen. Swore I would never see them again and haven't.

I saw Aerosmith in the early 90's and it was an entertaining show, but I doubt that I'd want to see 'em these days.

Yeah, I guess it is now kind of "a thing" these days to cancel a show in KC, for what ever reason, and then later go back out on tour and not put us on the schedule.

Anyone remember the gig that AEROSMITH had canceled maybe the VERY afternoon of their show set for December, 2002 at Kemper Arena?
I was SO pissed off about that. Had great seats. I doubt (for some reason) that Kansas City will see AEROSMITH again.
March 27, 2012 at 02:11 PM
Scorpions, Iron Maiden and Aerosmith all playing Denver, Dallas and Chicago, but no KC.
March 27, 2012 at 02:19 PM
And we thought building the Sprint Center was supposed to keep us from getting passed over.
March 27, 2012 at 02:25 PM
Steve Miller is not coming either.
Tyler on Idol, jump that shark
March 27, 2012 at 02:36 PM
I saw Steven Tyler and Aerosmith at their absolute lowest. I saw the Aerosmith show at Kemper in the early 80's in which Joe Perry and Brad Whitford were replaced by Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay on guitars. Joe and Brad had given up (temporarily) on Steven, as he was descending into heroin addiction at the time. I remember it being the worst arena show I have ever seen, still, to this day. Tyler was forgetting the lyrics and the band was just sloppy on stage that night. I bought a ticket to see them with ZZ Top a couple of years ago to see if they could redeem themselves, but alas, it never happened, and now I no longer care.

I have never seen Aerosmith before and it's too bad that they aren't bringing their tour to Kansas City this time. Didn't they cancel the Aerosmith show with ZZ Top a few years ago? There's no reasons given when, acts go on tour and we're not getting the Kiss/Motely Crue co-headlining tour either.
I looked in the latest almanac and Kansas City is the 29th largest metro area in 2010.

Speaking of ZZ Top, looks like they are passing us over too. Closest show in Des Moines, and few shows outside the southeast.
March 28, 2012 at 12:42 AM
Saw Aerosmith at Starlight in 84ish??? Perry and Whitford had returned but Steven was still battling his demons. It was not a very good show as I recall and have never wanted to see them since.
March 28, 2012 at 03:02 PM
But.... Stevie Nicks is on TV tommorow night. I have never watched this dumb llooking show, yet, it is the stupid looking baby show after 30 rock. She plays baby whisperer.... what ever that is.
March 28, 2012 at 03:34 PM
I also thought the baby show looked ridiculously stupid as well, but I've been watching since Maya Rudolph became more of a presence and I've actually been enjoying the heck out of it. Always liked Arnett and Applegate's okay, but Maya kills on it. Big fan of Ms.Rudolph since her SNL days and maybe it's just because I find legitmately funny woman hot or the bi-racial thing, but I've always found her to be incredibly sexy.
March 28, 2012 at 03:48 PM
Rudolf is OK, I thought she was great in the movie Idocracy, but I am no fan of Arnett, i just dont like his style. I think Applegate is fine, but the whole premise of this show... I dont know, where can it go? Plus I can not relate to it in any way.... unless Stevie is on. So I guess they have one night to get me, it happened before. I remember back to when I thought "king of queens" was a stupid show about fat gay guys.... but it isnt.... and now I find it quite amusing.

Tours that have passed up (recently) or looks like they will pass up Kansas City:
KISS / MOTLEY CRUE
IRON MAIDEN / ALICE COOPER
SCORPIONS (they hadn't been here in awhile)
AEROSMITH (I would still love to see them)
Well, ZZ TOP had been here a lot anyway. Weren't they at the Midland and even (maybe) the Ameristar once?
March 28, 2012 at 07:23 PM
I was really hoping to take my oldest son to see KISS and the Crue. I'm surprised they are skipping KC. Maybe there will be a second leg of the tour. Ditto for Scorpions and Maiden.
March 30, 2012 at 01:58 PM
I was going to mention that with the several tours that ARE in fact passing up Kansas City - just may add us later on their trek. I've seen it happen several times before. One can only hope.
March 30, 2012 at 02:41 PM
On Pollstar I saw the tour listing for Aerosmith and it's short. It's likely that more shows will be added to it.
March 30, 2012 at 04:22 PM
I found another tour that's passing up Kansas City. Neil Diamond is not bringing his tour here. I was checking out the listing on Pollstar.
April 03, 2012 at 08:02 AM
I really wish Iron Maiden would come back through. Their last tour's setlist was soooo good. And now they are playing Seventh Son Tour Re-Visited. That was the first tour I saw them on in 1988 (with Helloween) and it cemented my fandom for the ages.

Since Steven Tyler has become America's Sweetheart, Aerosmith by extension is dead to me and I have been a fan of theirs for 30 years.
No Mas, No CD's, No Tour Tickets, No T-Shirts.

Groups only have so many nights to play during the course of major tour. If all the arena's they play are going to be sold out anyways, Why would anybody choose to pay the 1% tax that only KC & St Louis have in place. Only two cities in the Country with this albatross. Figure 17,000 tickets at avg of $65 a chair.= 1,105,000 a show. That so called earnings tax turns into some real dough.
April 03, 2012 at 09:35 AM
I don't see what the big deal is, Aerosmith has totally blew since post-"Rocks".
April 03, 2012 at 09:36 AM
I'm not sure if that one percent earnings tax in KCMO is causing tours to bypass Kansas City. I was looking at the top money makers in Billboard and it seems that most acts net about a third of what they gross. Acts are making lots of money on tour with higher ticket prices. It used to be that acts would tour to support an album and make their money off album sales.
