- Steven Tyler sings for the band Aerosmith
- He has injured his vocal cords
- HERE are the details
According the the BBC, Areosmith started their Peace Out tour with several gigs earlier this month and had been been set to perform in Toronto this Tuesday. This has officially been pushed back until February 2024! That's quite a long time away. The reason is that Steven Tyler has damage his vocal cords while singing.
The next gig on the band's new schedule sees them in Tampa, Florida next month. In a statement posted on Instagram, Tyler, 74, said he was "heartbroken" about letting fans down, but his health has to come first!
Steven wants to get back ASAP!
"I'm heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor's orders not to sing for the next 30 days. I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday's show [in Elmont, New York] that led to subsequent bleeding. We'll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve," Tyler said.
For fans of Aerosmith, big hits in the 1970s, 80s and 90s such as "Dream On", "Walk This Way" and "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing", are only hits because of Tyler's incredible vocal range. But that needs to stop for now. And it's not the first time the band has had to postpone a show or tow. They cancelled part of their Las Vegas residency last year after Tyler checked himself into rehab.
"As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years," the group told fans back then. "After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery."
"All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates," the post stated. "Refunds will be available for those unable to attend. Fans with questions regarding refunds are asked to reach out to their point of purchase."
Their final tour had been set to conclude in Montreal on 26 January next year, but it will now run on into the following month, culminating in a rescheduled show in Cleveland, Ohio on 29 February. It is unclear if Tyler will require further medical attention after his mandated vocal rest.
As Fox reports, he is also facing a sexual assault lawsuit. Julia Misley accused the singer-songwriter of sexual assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. All of this can also stress a person, and compromise their health! Fans will be hoping he's up and running very soon!
