Aerosmith is back in the saddle again.

On Thursday night, the legendary rockers took the stage at Fenway Park in Boston, MA., for a hometown concert in front of more than 38,000 adoring fans as a means of officially kicking off their 50th anniversary celebrations.

Not only is that a big deal in itself — which it is — but it continued the band’s return to the stage after news in late May that front man Steven Tyler relapsed and self-admitted himself into a substance abuse treatment program. That prompted the cancellation of Aerosmith’s planned Las Vegas residency in June and July and, surely, sparked concern over the future of the group overall.

The first show back took place on Sept. 4 in Bangor, ME., and it appears that Aerosmith is fully firing on all cylinders once again. Here’s a clip from Fenway:
