Aerosmith performed "Dream On" and "Toys in the Attic" with the rapper.

Post Malone was joined onstage by Aerosmith for a surprise conclusion to Monday night's MTV Video Music Awards.

The rapper played guitar while Steven Tyler led both the band and audience in a snippet of "Dream On." They followed up with an exuberant performance of "Toys in the Attic," complete with a Joe Perry guitar smash. 

Prior to the band's arrival, Post Malone performed his hit "Rockstar" alongside 21 Savage. 

Tyler recently announced an Aerosmith Las Vegas residency — dubbed "Deuces are Wild" after their 1994 track — that's set to begin in the spring. 

The 2018 MTV VMAs took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
