Report: Canadian AEROSMITH Fans Get Christmas Early

Katie Smith of Canada's The Guardian reports: Brian Wakelin came into Charlottetown [Prince Edward Island, Canada] from North Rustico early Friday morning to make sure he was first in line to buy AEROSMITH tickets.

By 8 a.m., Wakelin and several of his friends were waiting outside the Civic Centre. Tickets for the July concert, dubbed Blast at the Beach, weren't available until Saturday at 10 a.m. at different locations across the Maritimes, including the Civic Centre, as well as online.

As Friday night approached, the weather turned cold, windy and rainy, and the friends, who all attend Bluefield high school, pitched a makeshift tent to sleep for the night.

"It wasn't even a tent," Wakelin said laughing. "It was like tarps taped together."

But it was worth it, as Wakelin and friends were once again the first in line for a big show.

"We went to THE ROLLING STONES, we were first in line. We're first in line for everything," he said, adding he had a lot of fun and met some "really neat people."

Another fan that arrived at the Civic Centre Friday night was Keri Lannigan. She was able to purchase the first VIP ticket.

She said the cost of $240 for the VIP ticket, which includes early access to the venue, food and drinks all day, separate washrooms and premium viewing location near the stage, was worth it.

"I'll be close to Steven Tyler," she said. "I love AEROSMITH. I grew up with them. I used to sing into the handle of a broom, I would sing AEROSMITH."
