There is no official announcement yet but there's little doubt in the minds of many people in central Newfoundland that Aerosmith will play at the 2012 Salmon Festival Grand Falls-Windsor this summer.
Festival organizers said their lips are sealed until an official announcement in mid-March, but when a radio station in the province asked on Twitter, ‘How does Aerosmith likes its salmon?’ many took it as confirmation.
"I'm not personally a fan [of Aerosmith], but I do believe they're going to draw a big crowd in," said Mary Jane Dwyer at the mall in Grand Falls-Windsor.
Last year's headliners Kiss sparked Kiss-mania but Aerosmith-fever doesn't seem to be catching on just yet.
"It'll be big, don't get me wrong, I'm sure they'll block the place but there are other acts that could probably draw a larger crowd," said Tony Batten, of Gander, who added that he'll probably make the trip to Grand Falls-Windsor for the show.
True fans are already booking reservations. Some hotels in central Newfoundland are reporting their rooms are all booked up for the festival weekend in mid-July.
