VIDEO: Aerosmith launch European tour in Bulgaria

Aerosmith kicked off their Let Rock Rule European tour at Stadium Lokomotiv in Sofia, Bulgaria on Saturday, and fan-filmed video from the event has surfaced.

The 19-song set opened with a cover of the Rufus Thomas tune, “Walking The Dog”, ran through hits from the Boston band’s catalog, and closed with the pairing of “Dream On” and “Sweet Emotion.”

Originally scheduled as the second date of the trek, the Sofia show became opening night after Aerosmith cancelled Wednesday night’s concert in Istanbul following last Tuesday's coal mine disaster in Soma, Turkey.

At press time, news reports indicate a fire at a mine in the western Turkish city has resulted in the death of 301 miners in what is the country’s worst industrial disaster.

Aerosmith cancelled what was to be their first-ever concert in Turkey after the country declared a three-day mourning for the victims of the incident.
