VIDEO: Steven Tyler performs at Nobel Peace Prize concert

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was among the performers at the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway on December 11.

Tyler performed “Dream On” and “Livin' On The Edge” before he and Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt played that band’s international hit, “More Than Words.”

“What an incredible honor to have this moment.... performing More than Words at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert with Steven Tyler,” said Bettencourt after the event.

Hosted by Queen Latifah, the event honored Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai, chosen by the Norwegian Nobel Committee for “their struggle against the oppression of children and young people, and for the right of all children to education.”

Other performers included Bollywood sensation Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, British soul singer Laura Mvula, Norway’s Gabrielle, and the Girls Of The World.

“Nobel Peace Week has been incredibly inspiring & humbling,” says Tyler. “I have the deepest respect for this year's prize winners Malala & Kailash. It was an honor to meet and speak with such brave & enlightened individuals.”
