Aerosmith plays free outdoor concert in Boston

BOSTON (AP) — Hundreds of people have gathered in a student neighborhood in Boston to hear a free live performance by Aerosmith.

The band played Monday outside the apartment building where they got their start in the city's Allston neighborhood. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is there along with Boston Mayor Tom Menino's wife and others.

The band is promoting its new album, "Live From Another Dimension," and encouraging people to vote.
