Concert reviews by a 9-year-old 

I was so excited, we were going to the Aerosmith and Cheap Trick concert at the TD Waterhouse Centre. As we walked in, Cheap Trick had just begun to play. We made it just in time. We were up close and personal. The stage is set with lots of strobe and multicolored lights. It is also small, with a long and wide catwalk.

The lights dim. Cheap Trick starts with "I Want You To Want Me." The band is very loud, so I put in my earplugs. They throw guitar picks into the crowd. They look very old. I enjoy them, especially the six-necked guitar.

Then there was an intermission.

After the intermission, everybody cheered as Aerosmith came pushing through the crowd. Steven Tyler was first, with his big pants that had cat eyes on the back, followed by Joe Perry who carried a guitar with his wife painted on it, then Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford. They played most of the songs from "Honkin' on Bobo" and a lot of older songs too. Steven threw harmonicas into the crowd from the side stage platforms. I almost caught it! He showed a lot of emotion in dancing and singing. There was only one bad thing, they played too many solos.

Although there were too many solos, I enjoyed the fact that they turned into songs I liked. My favorite song they played was "Road Runner" from "Honkin' on Bobo."
