Aerosmith Postpone Shows As Steven Tyler Suffers Vocal Chord Damage


Aerosmith have been forced to postpone a run of shows, after frontman Steven Tyler suffered damage to his vocal chords.

Aerosmith kicked off their North American Tour at the start of this month in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (September 2).

The band have also played shows at Elmont, and Pittsburgh as part of their ‘Peace Out’ Tour.

Aerosmith had been hinting about this tour all year, posting several cryptic clues on social media over recent months. More on this here.

Aerosmith “heartbroken” To Postpone Shows

However, Aerosmith have been forced to postpone some upcoming shows, as Steven Tyler suffers another health setback.

“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days”, the ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing’ hitmakers shared via social media.

They also added, “I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show 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”. 

See the full statement below.

It was also confirmed that any tickets purchased will be valid for the new dates. Fans with any quires have also been asked to contact their point of purchase.

Tickets for remaining dates can be found here.

This is not the first time that Aerosmith have been forced to cancel shows, amid health concerns regarding Tyler.

Last December, the band had to cancel shows at Vegas as Tyler battled an undisclosed illness. More on that here.
