Steven Tyler might be the only frontman in history who can hit the stage in a shirt emblazoned with the cartoon rendition of his own face without sacrificing an ounce of hard-rocking gravitas.

That’s exactly what he did on Saturday night (April 6) for the very first performance of Deuces Are Wild, Aerosmith’s new Las Vegas residency that has the Boston rock veterans blasting through their greatest hits while re-tracing the steps of their journey to rock legend status.

Before the band took the stage at the Park MGM’s Park Theater, a trip down memory lane was projected on the eight towering screens over the stage. Tons of never-before-seen photos of the guys as babies and awkward teenagers were peppered throughout numerous concert reels, TV spots and interviews. One of the featured clips is Aerosmith’s cameo in a 1991 episode of The Simpsons, and Tyler chose to sport a tee bearing the Simpsonified versions of himself and his bandmates for their first night of the run.

(He shared a goofy clip of himself warming up for the show, sans-tee, in the hours before the performance.)
