Live Review: Aerosmith + Wolfmother + Grinspoon + The Dead Daisies + Spiderbait + Diva Demolition - Sidney Myer Music Bowl (28.04.13)

There’s only one reason I would spend my afternoon stand on a grassy hill on a gloomy Melbourne day with a forecast for rain. That reason my friend, is that it’s Aerosmith’s first Australian tour in over 20 years. Despite the temperature of 16 degrees and ominous grey clouds that were looming over head, there was a sense of anticipation in the air, and a stellar line up that made the Sunday afternoon worth the threatening weather.
