AEROSMITH, THE J. GEILS BAND Frontmen Reportedly Clashed Before Fenway Park Concert
According to The Boston Globe, the fact that AEROSMITH and THE J. GEILS BAND didn't perform a song together at yesterday's (Saturday, August 14) concert in Boston's famed Fenway Park might have to do with a last-minute feud between the bands' frontmen Steven Tyler and Peter Wolf. An unspecified "source" tells the web site that "Tyler didn't want Wolf to use the ramp that extended into the audience and told him so the night before the show. . . The singers had a 'heated argument' in the outfield as a few dozen workers put the finishing touches on the stage Friday . . . In the end, Tyler relented, but he told Wolf to also get the OK from Joe Perry, which Wolf did." The Boston Globe adds that AEROSMITH has prohibited other acts, including Sammy Hagar, from using the ramp during opening sets.
The announcement of last night's "Double Play" event was made on April 7 by Tyler and Wolf at the top of the 4th inning of the Red Sox/Yankees game when they visited Red Sox announcers Don Orsini and Jerry Remy (see photo below).
