Throwback Concert: Aerosmith at New Haven Coliseum 1982

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1982!

That year 99.1 PLR presented Aerosmith at New Haven Coliseum. In 1982 Aerosmith hit the road to support their seventh studio album, “Rock in a Hard Place,” the first and only album to not feature lead guitarist Joe Perry. Rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford did not appear on the album as well. Despite all of this, Aerosmith carried on with replacements to join original members Steven Tyler, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer.

Today we look back at Aerosmith’s 1982 show in New Haven…
