Aerosmith surprised many by being added to the lengthy list of performers at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards joining rapper Post Malone on stage.

Malone, along with 21 Savage, performed the hit “Rockstar,” which led into a mini-medley of “Dream On” and “Toys in the Attic.”

Aerosmith has been on a very high-profile press/appearance tour to promote their upcoming Las Vegas residency in honor of their 50th band anniversary and have performed on NBC’s Today and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.  Considering this latest appearance, who knows where the Bad Boys from Boston will show up next!
