AEROSMITH Frontman Sings National Anthem At BRUINS Home Opener; Video Available
AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler sang the national anthem earlier tonight (Thursday, October 21) at the Bruins domestic home opener against the Washington Capitals at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Video footage of his rendition can now be viewed below.
Tyler's May 27, 2001 version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the 85th Indianapolis 500 — where he came under criticism after he replaced "home of the brave'" with "home of the Indianapolis 500" — recently made Billboard magazine's "10 worst national anthem performances ever."
Tyler immediately apologized and reaffirmed his patriotism after the incident.
Video footage of the performance can be viewed below.
