Aerosmith opened their Blue Army summer tour at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona on June 13.

The Boston band’’s 16-song set opened with their 1977 classic, “Draw The Line”, and featured several of the group’s 1970s classics, including “Toys In The Attic”, “Back in The Saddle”, “Mama Kin” and their signature tune, “Walk This Way”, before closing with “Sweet Emotion.”

The 15-date North American tour – with guests Living Colour – was inspired by the fans, according to guitarist Joe Perry.

“The name Blue Army came from the fact that everyone in our audience from the 70’s were wearing blue denim,” he explains, “and it looked like a sea of blue, thus The Blue Army."

Aerosmith warmed up for the tour with a private, invitation-only show at Petco Park in San Diego, California on June 10 for guests attending the Cisco Live! Convention in the city.

The band’s next appearance is scheduled for June 14 in Evansville, IN.
