Aerosmith returned to the stage on Friday night (February 1) with their first concert since May 2018. The group performed at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena to help launch the first-ever Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest.

Aerosmith‘s appearance marked their first concert of what will be the band’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Friday’s lineup also featured Post Malone.]

Aerosmith’s 17-song performance marked Joe Perry’s first performance since he was hospitalized on November 10 following a guest performance during Billy Joel’s show at Madison Square Garden. He subsequently cancelled a brief solo tour that had been planned.

On the cusp of their 50th anniversary and having sold over 150 million albums worldwide, Aerosmith–Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (lead guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass) and Joey Kramer (drums)–are a key part of American music history. They are the recipients of countless awards including four Grammys, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards, among many other honors including an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The choice for the LIII halftime show – Maroon 5 – has been the subject of much ridicule. Many fans expressed disappointment that legacy acts weren’t chosen. Others felt that the host city’s history of supporting black artists was ignored. Several acts had reportedly rebuffed the NFL’s offer due to the league’s years of controversy that began with Colin Kaepernick’s taking a knee in 2016 during the playing of the National Anthem.
