While Tyler was in Moscow, he spent some time exploring the city’s famous attractions. As he was walking around one day, he stumbled upon a street busker who was singing “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”

Tyler stopped to watch the performer, attempting to blend into the crowd. Then, after a few minutes, he decided he wanted to join the performer.

As the crowd cheered, Tyler walked up to the performer and began singing with him. The pair sang together for a few lines, and then busker stepped aside and let Tyler take over. The busker continued to play guitar as Tyler sang, “Cause I miss you, babe, and I don’t want to miss a thing.”

After they finished singing, Tyler gave the busker a high-five. The busker grinned from ear-to-ear—the duet only lasted a couple of minutes, but we’re sure the busker will remember this moment forever!

This wasn’t the first time that Tyler joined a fan for an impromptu duet.

In May 2014, Tyler was in Vilnius, Lithuania for a concert. As he was exploring the city, he came across an accordionist and a violinist performing an acoustic version of “Crazy.” He joined the performers, but he ended up forgetting some of the words to the song!

In 2010, Tyler also sang over the loudspeaker at Home Depot. He sang two classic Aerosmith songs for the store’s surprised customers: “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” and “Dude Looks Like a Lady.” One thing is for sure: Tyler loves creating surprising and memorable moments for his fans!

Tyler also isn’t the only musician who has been caught on video singing with street performers.

In 2013, singer Michael Bublé gave an impromptu performance in the New York City subway. Bublé and a group of buskers performed “Who’s Loving You” for a crowd of commuters.

In March 2017, Jon Legend performed for a group of commuters in London.

Legend sat down at a piano in King’s Cross Station and played “All of Me.” Tons of commuters gathered around him as he belted out his famous song.
