Notes:

- From a local review: "Aerosmith sounded better than ever last night in the Coliseum, and it's no wonder. The band has been off the road for four years while lead singer Steven Tyler recuperated from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident, and Aerosmith now has roared back with renewed energy and dedication. The newly restructured group did all the gutsy, hard rocking tunes that made it famous, but played them as if they were new. Tyler's voice sounded a little older and raspier during the opening lines of 'Dream On,' but was back in top form for the screaming climax. Probably because they haven't done them for years, Tyler and the band worked hard to put across Aerosmith classics such as 'Walk This Way,' 'Dream On,' 'Train Kept A-Rollin',' 'Sweet Emotion,' and 'Toys in the Attic.' They played only a few tunes from the new 'Rock in a Hard Place' album, sticking to tried-and-true material.

Arriving on stage to the soundtrack of 'Psycho,' the whirling, dancing Tyler looked like his old self in a black outfit with material trailing from the arms. As usual, his mike stand was decorated with long strands of colored ribbons. The new guitarists — Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay, who replaced Joe Perry and Brad Whitford — added new twists to the old songs with high-energy solos... As usual with Aerosmith shows, the sound and lights were first-rate without being gimmicky. The band resisted the temptation to shine bright lights on the audience — the latest rock-concert gimmick — until the end. The only complaint was that the 75-minute set was too short. In past years, Aerosmith has played twice that long" (Seattle Times, 1/21/83).
