A long catwalk extended into the crowd, allowing the band to interact with fans, thrilling the audience!
Maui News photographer, Matt Thayer (with wrist bands on), gets up close and personal with lead singer, Steven Tyler.
Joe Perry set up a keyboard stand and played his guitar right in front of the photographers during the first couple of songs, making is super fun to photograph. The hard part was, when Joe Perry was right in front of us, Steven Tyler was out on the catwalk with the spotlights on him- which way to turn??
The band put on a totally dynamic show non stop for over two hours!
Steven Tyler making his way back to the stage from the catwalk.
The band, jamming right in front of the photographers.
My favorite shot of Mr. Tyler. You can see his lei around his neck if you look carefully.
The ever impressive Joe Perry on bass.
Steven Tyler thanking kumu hula, Lehua, and her hula halau for opening the show. She also presented him with a lei, welcoming him to the island.
The incredibly talented Maui musician, Vince Esquire, opened the show with his band. He got the crowd on their feet right off the bat. They didn't sit down for nearly 3 hours!
More great music is on the way to Maui so stay tuned!
A hui hou,
