BOSTON (AP) — Thousands of fans filled a Boston street to watch Aerosmith play a concert in front of the building where band members once lived.

People hung out windows, crowded fire escapes and stood on roofs on Commonwealth Avenue to watch a show meant to encourage voting and promote the band's new album, which comes out Tuesday on Election Day.

The band played songs including "Walk this Way," ''Sweet Emotion" and some of their new album, "Music from Another Dimension!"

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was among those attending Monday's show, getting on stage after the band arrived in an amphibious tour vehicle.

Boston University student Becca Emmetts, who lives in Aerosmith's former building, sent a friend to her physics class with this message explaining her tardiness: "Aerosmith was playing on my front stoop."
