Aerosmith has launched their new Las Vegas residency, AEROSMITH: DEUCES ARE WILD, at the Park Theater in the Park MGM resort. The sold-out first show was a combination of visceral rock with high technology to bring to life Aerosmith's story of going from a struggling group from Boston to America’s all-time top-selling rock ‘n’ roll band.
The live performance starts by taking the audience back in time, as they’re treated to the sights and sounds of the band’s historic journey, beginning with Woodstock and flashing forward to the present. The centerpiece of the show is a 90-minute live performance from the original Aerosmith band members: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer. The show includes unreleased audio and never-before-seen visuals from Aerosmith’s archive produced by the studio, Pixomondo. Using cutting-edge technology, the visual effects company also brought to life Aerosmith’s infamous logo - the wings - and packed motion graphics and flashback moments of the band’s past, to express Aerosmith’s 50-year road trip.
Aerosmith also teamed up with show director Amy Tinkham, show producer Steve Dixon and producer Giles Martin. Production design was by studio Fireplay and studio Pixomondo. In addition, the Park Theater, the first THX Certified live performance venue, brought fans face-to-face with the band using L-Acoustics L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology. The theater also includes an on-stage VIP experience and a walkway that stretches from the stage to the balcony seats.
