Aerosmith’s frontman, Steven Tyler, has released some heart breaking news for fans as he announced that the remaining dates of the final Aerosmith tour would be canceled. Tyler said that he’d received advice from his doctor recommending that Tyler stop performing due to bleeding from his vocal chords. The injury occurred during the band’s stop at the UBS Arena on Sept. 9, leaving the rock legend heartbroken and unable to perform for the next 30 days.
The band has already completed three of the 40 scheduled performances on the tour since its launch on Sept. 2 in Philadelphia. The six canceled dates have been rescheduled to 2024 with them starting in January and finishing up in February with stops around Detroit, Chicago, Washington, Toronto, Raleigh, and Cleveland. The band assured fans that they would have their previously purchased tickets fully honored on the rescheduled dates.
The band has had cancellations and rescheduling challenges in the past. Last December, the band had to cancel the final two performances of their Las Vegas residency after Tyler suffered from an undisclosed illness. Prior to that, the band had pushed back other residency dates in order to accommodate Tyler’s voluntary visit to an addiction treatment program.
Aerosmith is determined to give their fans the performance they deserve once Tyler fully recovers. Good luck to Tyler on his recovery!
