AeroHistory: 50 years ago today!

November 6th 1970 - Aerosmith plays their first ever show at Nipmuc Regional High School in Mendon, MA.

The new band got the gig because Joe Perry‘s mother, who worked at a nearby school, knew someone at Nipmuc, and helped set it up.

At the time, Ray Tabano was on rhythm guitar. He would be replaced by Brad Whitford a year later. Tickets for the show cost about a dollar.

We have a lot of amazing things coming to celebrate #Aerosmith50! Sadly, due to everything going on there have been some unexpected delays. But don’t worry, you won’t believe the treasures we have been digging out of the vaults to share with the Blue Army. It will be worth the wait... Stay Tuned!!!
