Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry will participate in a Wayne’s World virtual reunion with actors Mike Myers (Wayne) and Dana Carvey (Garth) as part of actor Josh Gad‘s YouTube series “Reunited Apart” on Monday (December 7). ) at 9 AM ET / 12PM PT.
Gad, perhaps best recognized as the voice of Snowman Olaf in Disney’s Frozen movie series, has spent much of the year gathering stars from classic movies like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and more. With the release of Season 2, he has marked the Aerosmith icons and stars of the two Wayne’s World films, which originally started out as a parody on Saturday Night Live.
The legendary rockers originally refused to participate in the first film (1990) after appearing in one of SNL’s sketches but opted for Wayne’s World 2 in 1993. In the film, Wayne and Garth organize a festival, Waynestock, under the mantra of, “If you book them, they will come”, a message that was transmitted to Wayne in a dream where he met Jim Morrison of The Doors in a desert.
Aerosmith performed “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)” and “Shut Up and Dance” during their appearance on stage.
The band posted a teaser clip for the episode “Reunited Apart” and an extended teaser can be seen in the video player below Aerosmith’s Instagram post.
