Aerosmith played a private concert at the relatively tiny Beacon Theater Sunday night, exclusively for members of the new Citi/AAdvantage card. (This on the heels of similar, AmEx-only events featuring Kanye West and Lauryn Hill earlier this year.) It was a rare opportunity to see the stadium rockers up close, and we learned several things: Tom Hamilton, who'd missed part of the recent tour due to throat-cancer treatment is back in fine form. Joe Perry still has his abs. And Steven Tyler advises his daughter, Liv, on her movie choices. "She called me up and said, 'Dad, Jerry Bruckheimer's doing this movie,'" he said about Armageddon. "I said, 'What's it about?' And she said, 'It starts off with Bruce Willis hitting golf balls into the Gulf from an oil rig and then a meteor comes down, and everything goes to hell.' I said, 'Take that shit!' They wanted four songs from Aerosmith. KA-CHING!" Ah, the joys of fatherhood. —Jada YuanEarlier:Lauryn Hill: Not Crazy After All These Years?
