Pop music: Aging rockers are hitting the arenas

September 13, 2001

If you like your rock and roll like you do your wine, aged to perfection, then pop the cork. It's your season.

Aerosmith's train keeps a-rollin' this week at Nissan Pavilion, followed later this month by fairy godmother Stevie Nicks at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Then, October brings Mr. Halloween Makeup himself, Alice Cooper, to Merriweather and raspy Rod Stewart to the Baltimore Arena. Of course, all this is simply building up to a November stop at the MCI Center by the bard, Bob Dylan.

Like your music with a message?

"Sisters in the Spirit," featuring Shirley Caesar, Yolanda Adams and Virtue, spreads the gospel and raises the rafters at the Baltimore Arena Oct. 7.

Like your music with no message other than "get up and dance"?

Disco queen Teena Marie, the SOS Band and the Panama Band boogie at the Lyric next week.

Does disco still make you ill?

The lovably nerdy Weezer might be the perfect antidote at the Patriot Center Sept. 28.

What will we do for an encore?
