AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler performed acoustically at the Melrose Ballroom in Long Island City, New York on September 10, 2015 for an exclusive “Front And Center” episode which will air on February 29. The show features Tyler performing stripped-down renditions of AEROSMITH classics like “Jaded”, “Janie’s Got A Gun” and “Sweet Emotion”, with the singer accompanied by LOVING MARY — a band featuring his longtime collaborator Marti Frederiksen, along with Rebecca Lynn Howard, Lindsey Lee and Eric Paslay — as well as EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt.
“Steven Tyler is one of the greatest creative minds of our time,” said Don Maggi, “Front And Center” executive producer. “To have him in this setting stripping down his music to the essence of what makes a great song — paying tribute to that craft — is an honor for us.”
