Aerosmith in Nashville

I did something spontaneous and crazy...I bought tickets to attend Aerosmith's last show of this tour in Nashville Tennessee...a week beforehand. The show was this past Thursday December 13th, a day after my last final exam for this semester. I had just seen them in Columbus Nov 25th, but was wanting to go one last time this tour, so I started pricing tickets on stub hub and eBay. The tickets were stupid expensive and most of the somewhat doable seats weren't THAT good. So I by chance went to the Ticketmaster site and found 2 platinum seats right by the end of the catwalk. So I bought those immediately for me and Cori!

The day of the show I took 4 PTO hours off work and left at 11:30. Came home and rounded up my camera's and everything I would need for the short trip and when Cori arrived we left around 1pm to head to Nashville. The drive took about 4 hours 20 mins and we located a parking garage once we arrived, parked then walked to the Bridgestone Arena. I picked up our tickets at Will Call, walked around the building to see if we could see any of the guys arrive (they had to have already been inside tho) and then we found a close restaurant and ate some food. We walked around downtown Nashville a bit, I bought my mom an Elvis coffee mug for Christmas in a touristy shop and then we headed over to the arena.

We found our seats and they were amazing! Jose, who I met at the show in Columbus was there and we talked to him for a bit after Cheaptrick played. Brooke, a Twitter friend from New York came to the show and by freak happenstance our seats were side by side. Totally crazy. So I got to meet her and her mom which was fun.

When Aerosmith hit the stage I was beyond excited. This was my 3rd show this tour but I don't think it will ever get old seeing them live. Steven was in a overly mischievous mood for the last show and the others seemed full of energy and in good spirits as well. They delivered yet another amazing show and I loved every minute of it. Cryin' hadn't made the set list at all this 2nd leg of the tour but they did it that night. It being the first song of theirs I had ever heard as a kid and just one of my faves in general I was really stoked. Also they added in Train Kept a Rollin' which is another fave of mine they do. I took a butt load of pics once again and 5 videos as well. Here are a few of the pics I took and edited. For all the pics visit my facebook page and the videos are posted on my YouTube Channel.
