Aero's last show of the 1980s! What a crazy decade for the band, but they were quite busy actually as the band went from a Tyler/Hamilton/Kramer/Whitford/Crespo lineup to Tyler/Hamilton/Kramer/Crespo/Dufay then finally back to Tyler/Hamilton/Kramer/Perry/Whitford and they cranked out four albums in the process. How many big bands make 4 albums in a decade these days? Not a bad show here, but the slickness is creeping in. For me hard to stomach "Love In An Elevator" and "Dude" back to back. Yet some of the newer stuff, for that time, "Hangman Jury" and " F.I.N.E. " are good. "Red House" is truncated here as Perry whips through a short version in time for the New Year's countdown. You get the answer to a trivia question here: "What was the first tune Aerosmith played in the 1990s."  Taper seems to be in a good spot, but has a "sticky" deck that limits the quality and spectrum of the sound, but not bad overall.
