Throwback Concert: Aerosmith at New Haven Coliseum 1989

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1989!

That year PLR welcomed Aerosmith back to New Haven Coliseum. After a highly successful Permanent Vacation Tour in 1987, Aerosmith hit the road in ’89 to support its tenth studio album “Pump,” which featured hits like Love In An Elevator and Janie’s Got a Gun. The tour lasted almost a full year and there were multiple opening acts along the way, including Metallica, Joan Jett, Poison, The Black Crowes and The Cult. By the time the tour came to New Haven, Skid Row was tabbed as the opener.

Today we look back at Aerosmith’s 1989 show at the Coliseum…
