Iconic rockers Aerosmith brought their Let Rock Rule World Tour 2014 to anxious fans in Detroit.

Aerosmith played their hearts out to a packed house September 9, playing with such youthful vigor, it felt like a step back in time. You couldn’t help but feel like you were hanging out at Pine Knob (DTE’s previous name) back in the late 70s.

Aerosmith put together an excellent set list containing many great tunes. They had the crowd whipped into a frenzy as they sang along to many of these classic hits. The crowd went wild when Slash wheeled a cake out to the stage and Steven Tyler led them as they sang Happy Birthday to Joe Perry.

For a band of rockers who started out in the 70s, they definitely have no issue embracing today’s technology as the band streamed the entire concert live on Yahoo! Screen. Playing their energetic live show to a standing room only crowd just goes to show that these aging rockers can still pull a crowd and give ‘em their money’s worth.

Set List: “Train Kept A-Rollin’”, “Eat The Rich,” “Love In An Elevator,” “Cryin’,” “Livin’ On The Edge,” “Kings and Queens,” “Toys In The Attic,” “Jaded,” “Drum Solo,” “Rag Doll,” “Stop Messin’ Around (Fleetwood Mac cover),” “Mama Kin,” “Happy Birthday to Joe Perry,” “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” “No More No More,” “Come Together (Beatles cover),” “Walk This Way,” “Dream On,” “and Sweet Emotion.”

Our photographer, Thom Seling, was on hand to catch the band in action. Here are some of his images from the night.
