As reported by Rolling Stone (via NME), Depp united with the band for the final encore of their Massachusetts show. Watch below.

"Train Kept A-Rollin'" was first recorded by jazz musician Tiny Bradshaw in 1951. Having been performed by the Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, among others, Aerosmith first recorded their version for the 1974 album "Get Your Wings."
