You know it's going to be an epic concert when Slash, one of the greatest rock 'n' roll guitarists known to mankind, is your opening act. Only Aerosmith, the best-selling rock band of all time, could top the excitement generated by seeing the legendary Guns N' Roses ax-man jam with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Aerosmith's legendary vocalist Steven Tyler will keep the crowds cheering (and scarves fluttering) as he belts out hit after hit, from "Dream On" to "Janie's Got a Gun" to "Love in an Elevator" and many more, with Joe Perry on lead guitar. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime show as these music gods roll into Concord Pavilion on their Let Rock Rule tour. Learn More

The SFS sound was great but not fabulous, perhaps because the orchestra with guest conductor and soloist lacked the deft touch of MTT. The evocative soundscapes of Dutilleux sounded unusual and very unfamiliar to me, but the solo violin and very full orchestra scraped up a wild and otherworldly clamor (appropriate for the soundtrack of a ghostly Halloween movie), in contrast with the 'ho-hum' sedate and predictable intricacies of the Beethoven and Haydn symphonies, which required fewer orchestral players. I would have preferred to skip the latter and contrast the Dutilleux with Ravel, Bartok, and/or Stravinsky, who influenced him.
Sadly, I could not hear most of the 7 pm lecture which was poorly amplified and presented by a lecturer unschooled in effective public speaking. Her stage presence was ZIP.

Been to SFS concerts before, but this was the first time with 'blind' seating via Goldstar. Picked up the tickets at will-call in the early evening.
The animated guest conductor and symphony seemed to work well together. The special guest...continued
