Steven Tyler recently surprised bystanders in Moscow, Russia, when he joined a street performer to sing Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”

A video of the unexpected performance was uploaded to YouTube on Sept. 4. The Aerosmith frontman (and, now, country solo artist) landed in Moscow on Sept. 2, according to a tweet he posted that day.

Tyler -- whose debut country single, “Love Is Your Name,” was released in May -- ended the "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" duet with a high five before posing for photos in front of the cheering crowd. He’s made headlines in the past for impromptu street jam sessions that made their rounds on the Internet -- like the time when he possibly forgot the lyrics to “Crazy” while singing with a violinist and accordionist in Vilnius, Lithuania, and the time that he played “Dream On” across a wall of bottles in Helsinki, Finland.
