Aerosmith concert at Rupp Arena, 1998

Posted on December 26, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler got in Lexington’s face on Feb. 2, 1998, during a concert before a near-sellout crowd of 17,000 at Rupp Arena. The Boston band delighted the crowd for two hours with thundering hits that spanned generations. Songs played included the 1973 anthem “Dream On” and the band’s current radio hit, “Pink.” The best-selling American hard-rock band of all time dived into its 1970s roots with “Draw the Line” and “Toys in the Attic” but also played recent hits including “Love in an Elevator.” It was the last time the band played Rupp, where Aerosmith had played five previous times. Recently, The Lexington Center Corp. tentatively agreed to a new partnership that officials hope will help attract more concerts and bigger artists to Rupp Arena, the area’s largest indoor concert venue.
