Aerosmith to perform with Run-DMC at Grammy Awards

A new report indicates Aerosmith will be joined by Run-DMC during their performance at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on January 26.

According to Variety, a source close to the situation confirms the Boston rockers will deliver their 1975 classic, “Walk This Way”, with the hip hop group as part of a medley of their biggest hits.

The second single from the band’s third album, “Toys In The Attic”, reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and earned a second life when Run–DMC were joined by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry for the group’s 1986 cover, which hit No. 4 on the same US chart.

Last year, “Walk This Way”, was among 25 recordings inducted into the 2019 Grammy Hall Of Fame.

Hosted by Alicia Keys, the 62nd annual Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center and see live music from Billie Eilish, Lizzo and Blake Shelton with Gwen Stefani, among others.

The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, January 26 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT.

Aerosmith will resume their ongoing Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas residency at the end of the month.
