Aerosmith Joined by Slash onstage in LA

Aerosmith announced a set of American summer dates yesterday. They'll be touring with Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and launched the tour with a lunchtime set at LA's infamous Whiskey A Go Go club.

The band played a short set stacked with classics, from Draw The Line to Walk this way, with the ever-saucy Pink the only nod to more recent success.

Slash joined the fun 25 minutes in for a burn through Mama Kin and Train Kept A Rolling (the former appeared on Guns ‘N Roses’ debut EP Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide, which probably kept rehearsal to a minimum).

The show was streamed live on YouTube, and is still online, although the audience appear to be more interested in their mobile devices than they are the band.
