Aerosmith teamed up with producer Giles Martin – known for creating the soundscape for "The Beatles Love" by Cirque du Soleil show – for the series, which is billed as “one of the most immersive, state-of-the art audio and video technology experiences in Las Vegas.”

Aerosmith will continue the residency with more dates next month and into December before returning in 2020.
