His night at Studio 54 began following Aerosmith’s concert at MGM Grand Garden Arena where Tyler and his bandmates played for their legion of followers. Shortly after midnight, and a quick costume change, Tyler hit the red carpet with girlfriend Erin Brady. Brady, clad in a white dress with sequined flowers and tan heels, looked ravishing next to Tyler, who sported a tan vest and white button-down paired with animal print pants and sneakers.

While on the carpet, Tyler talked about Aerosmith’s Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock tour. Raving about the great venues they have played, Tyler said, “Every night the band never played better. I don’t know how it’s possible, but it’s just true.”

Immediately after the carpet, Tyler made his way into the legendary Studio 54 where he was met with a huge ovation from the partygoers who were electrified by his presence. After making his way to his skybox, Tyler took the mic and cued DJ Skribble to play “Walk This Way.” Looking as young and energetic as he did in the 1980’s, Tyler treated the crowd to an impromptu concert, belting out the legendary song while hanging over the railing of his second-level skybox. The crowd below jumped and danced with excitement that only the iconic rocker could bring.

Not satisfied to just perform for the clubbers at Studio 54, Tyler then walked the perimeter of his skybox to interact with the hundreds of fans that followed him upstairs. Posing for pictures and signing body-parts, including a fair amount of cleavage, Tyler gave back to his fans for their years of adoration. Tyler finally settled in for a night of relaxation with former Aerosmith guitarist Ray Tabano and crew members of his tour.
