VIDEO: Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler plays piano in Canadian park

Steven Tyler surprised a handful of fans in a downtown park in Kelowna, British Columbia on July 13 when he stopped by and peformed a tatse of an Aerosmith classic on a piano.

The singer played the intro to his band’s 1973 signature tune, “Dream On”, just hours before the group’s show at Kelowna's Prospera Place as part of their Blue Army tour.

Inspired by similar programs in other cities around the world, Kelowna’s Pianos In Parks initiative – part of Festivals Kelowna – sees 5 free, playable and accessible pianos installed in high profile, public spaces throughout its downtown to encourage residents and visitors to stop by and play the instrument.

Aerosmith’s 15-date Blue Army tour will wrap up in Grand Rapids, MI on August 4.

The Boston band will release a new live package, “Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014”, on Blu Ray, DVD and Digital on September 4.

The set features Aerosmith’s headline performance on June 15, 2014 as they closed the final night of the Download Festival in Donington Park.
