Steven Tyler is Playing at Naperville Ribfest 2018 and I’m Ridiculously Conflicted
Steven Tyler is crashing the 4th of July in Naperville this year, but it’s not exactly what you’ve hoped for.
You, being me.
I grew up in a basement blasting Aerosmith.
Sure, sometimes I went upstairs, but most of my childhood was filled with Steven, Joe, Joey, Tom and Brad and my two brothers who have been to more Aerosmith concerts than I can count.
I have been to none.
Once, in Junior High my entire family was going to an Aerosmith concert and I got so sick I had to stay home.
Alone, which I never understood why I stayed home alone, but I did and I missed the show and instead watched ‘The Brave Little Toaster.’
It’s now my life goal to see Aerosmith before Steven Tyler turns into a raisin. Sorry, but you know it’s gonna happen. He will be on stage and trip on a scarf and just become a California Raisin.
So when I saw this morning that Steven is playing in Naperville next July I was so excited!
Until… I realized, he’s not playing with Aerosmith. Nope, he’s playing with the Loving Mary Band, who I have yet to Google but I assume is country. I am not into country music.
Tickets for Ribfest go on sale November 22 so I have until then to decide if I need to seize this opportunity.
Is Steven really the same without Joe and company? Help!
