Notes:

- From a local review: "It was the last electric waltz of '82 for the city area, and Aerosmith rocked out the old and rolled in the new in prodigious style Wednesday night at Lloyd Noble Center... But when the lights went down again, and the darkness was accompanied by the slashing violin strains from the shower-murder scene in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' (a remarkably perfect synthesizer re-creation), the crowd began to stir once again. The moment Aerosmith finally bounded on-stage; enthusiasm exploded anew. Lead singer Steven Tyler still looked his lean and fit self in tight-fitting basic black as he plunged into the throbbing opener, 'Back in the Saddle.' It's been five years since the band's last Oklahoma City appearance and three years since its last national tour. But drastic personnel changes and uncertain times have failed to dampen Aerosmith's energy or heavy-metal dash.

New guitarists Jimmy Crespo (formerly of Flame) and Rick Dufay reeled through letter-perfect renditions of the old Joe Perry-Brad Whitford duets on boilers such as 'Mama Kin,' 'My Big 10-Inch (Record)' and 'Lord of the Thighs.' Their imposing sound was clean and technically well-mixed, allowing their much-improved vocal harmonies to shine through, and temporary road member Bob Mayo added extra texture on electronic keyboards. Newer rockers like 'Rock in a Hard Place' and 'Jig Is Up' were less interesting than their old standbys ('Sweet Emotion' and their classic anthem of troubled youth, 'Dream On'), but their showmanship and instrumental skills were as impressive as ever. While Aerosmith was never known for innovation, its stage prowess has seldom failed to stir the ardor of 8,000-plus sweating, bouncing fans and Thursday's performance was a prime example" (Daily Oklahoman, 12/31/82).
