One thing I noticed that's cause for alarm: During “Walk This Way,” a camera panned behind Tyler at one point, revealing teleprompters on stage, facing the band. I could determine, despite the quick cut across the stage, that the chorus of “Walk This Way” was scrolling down the screen. Seriously? Does Steven Tyler really need the words to his best-known song in front of him to perform it? It wasn't even the Run-DMC version!
