Aerosmith start the U.S. leg of their Let Rock Rule tonight (Thursday) in Wantagh, New York, just outside New York City.

With Slash opening, guitarist Joe Perry says, "It's gonna be a really good rock show. The competition is stiff as ever out there, but there's a real vibe there. He's got a really good band, and they just finished their new album and they're excited about getting out there with us. I think it's gonna be great."
