Aerosmith Helps Japanese Red Cross
Aerosmith don’t normally take song requests, but this time they were made an offer they couldn’t refuse. While on tour last week in Japan, a longtime fan named Nobu offered them what Joe Perry says was “a huge amount of money to play his five favorite songs.” Perry says they accepted the offer and then donated the fee to the Japanese Red Cross. The band were joined by their number-one fan when they presented the check in Nagoya.
For the record, the songs Nobu requested Aerosmith play were “Let the Music Do the Talking,” “Kings and Queens,” “Beyond Beautiful,” “F.I.N.E.” and “Full Circle.”
“Full Circle” is a track from 1997’s Nine Lives. Judging by a site that keeps track of songs Aerosmith has played on tour, that’s one song they probably had to relearn for this show.
