Notes:

- In November 1982, a show in Calgary was also being considered.
- From a local review: "Fans of hard-rock are called headbangers. As the name implies, headbangers like the sheer blistering volume of hard-rock in their ears and the gut-level kick it gives to their bodies. About 10,000 headbangers liked what they saw and heard at the Coliseum Friday night: Aerosmith and Pat Travers. But for me, the concert didn't end soon enough. It was dull, lifeless and devoid of original expression. But then, that's hard rock for you... Sure, Aerosmith may be one of the leading practitioners of hard rock. But the band lacks style, flair, originality. After all, so many other bands do what Aerosmith does and they do it so much better. For flash and showmanship, I'll take the bizarre antics of Ozzy Osbourne any day. For sheer heavy rock guitar mastery, I'll choose Van Halen's namesake Eddie Van Halen. What Aerosmith amounts to is a band with limited ideas — sort of a poor-man's Led Zeppelin. Or rather, a Led Zeppelin for today's teenagers who were too young to enjoy the real thing (the average age Friday was about 16) ... It appears that the members of Aerosmith — veterans Tyler, Tom Hamilton on bass, and Joey Kramer on drums, and newly added guitarists Jim Crespo (lead) and Rick Dufay — still believe in the old hard-rock maxim, the louder the better" (Vancouver Sun, 1/22/83).
