I caught their show at Great Woods (sorry.. Tweeter Center) last night. I gotta say that Kid Rock totally impressed me. He was all over the place and rocked out harder than the old vets. Aerosmith still put on a helluva show, but they were much more polished. Kid Rock just let it all loose with pyro, go-go dancers, and a pretty damn good set. I was wondering if anyone else in the Northeast has seen any of the shows yet? Any opinions?
