Aerosmith assistant tour manager John B. has posted a little item on the band's website about their first week in Australia where they are on tour. He says, "It was a very emotional week here in Sydney. The guys all kept close eyes and ears on what was going on in their hometown [of Boston following the bombings] and their thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved in that horrible tragedy."
Bassist Tom Hamilton adds, "So strange being so far away from home and all that's happened. Was it a dream? I wish it was. So proud of my city. Sad for those who were hurt."
Aerosmith, who performed in Sydney on Saturday on a bill with Van Halen, is in New Zealand on Wednesday.
