In between wrapping up recording on their as-of-yet untitled new album and touring several dates in the South America and Japan, Aerosmith have been a busy band in 2011. Each of their members have been involved in various projects at one time (Steven Tyler's American Idol stint, and guitarist Joe Perry's new book, and a huge endorsement by Guitar Hero] they've managed to find the time to sit down and record a new album's worth of material.
Their first record since 2004s 'Honkin' a Bobo', Aerosmith's latest offering is slated to be 'nasty and raw', according to producer Jack Douglas NME Magazine, a lot like their earlier material that won them so much fame and love in the 70s and 80s.
In order to develop concert videos to accompany Aerosmith's new catalogue as well as their classics ('Sweet Emotion', 'Dream On'), their live show requires a diverse set up that includes elaborate light displays and accompanying concert video, supplied by Daddy Van Productions.
The concert video designs that appear behind Aerosmith are a mix of live video feed, cinematic reels, and other more abstract imagery involving colors and other themes echoed in the band's music, like images of flames. Overall, their live set up is classy and clean, upholding their reputation as one of the greatest bands of all time.
Aerosmith, also known as 'America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band', have one of the biggest live shows in the world, and have traveled across the world several times wowing both audiences and critics alike. Plus, the best part is Stephen Tyler can still hit those high notes on 'Dream On' in 1975!
