After playing his hit “rockstar” featuring 21 Savage, Post Malone was joined by surprise guests Aerosmith, who played “Dream On,” and then played with Malone (who’d grabbed a guitar by this point) on a truly rousing rendition of “Toys in the Attic.” It raged surprisingly hard! Steven Tyler’s still got it.
