Venue change[edit]

The tour was unique in that it sent the band to smaller arenas in areas they hadn't played in a long time, particularly in smaller markets in the South and Midwest. Additionally, the tour was almost exclusively arenas, a change in pace from the predominantly amphitheater tours the band embarked on in the past.


The setlist varied widely from show to show, but was generally no longer than 20 songs, and featured several of their classics, as well as new bluesy tunes from Honkin' on Bobo including "Baby, Please Don't Go", "Road Runner", "Stop Messin' Around", and "Never Loved a Girl".

Stage Setup[edit]

The stage setup was meant to imitate an old blues club, with neon signs in the back and a relatively simple stage. There was also a catwalk, a format which would continue on subsequent Aerosmith tours.

You Gotta Move[edit]

The DVD release You Gotta Move, the band's first live video compilation since 1987, was culled primarily from the Orlando performance on the tour and was originally aired as an A&E television special. The DVD was released in late 2004.
