Throwback Concert: Aerosmith at New Haven Coliseum 1987

Throwback Concert: Aerosmith at New Haven Coliseum 1987

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1987!

That year PLR welcomed Aerosmith to New Haven Coliseum. Aerosmith hit the road in 1987 to support its commercially successful comeback album “Permanent Vacation,” which featured such hits as Dude (Looks Like a Lady), Angel, Rag Doll and Hangman Jury. Joining Aerosmith at the Coliseum were special guest Dokken.

Though 1985’s “Done With Mirrors” Tour was Aerosmith’s official comeback with the return of Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, who both left the band at different points, it was “Permanent Vacation” that marked the band’s true comeback because of its hit songs and commercial success.
