Key Takeaway

Steven Tyler’s vocal cord injury has forced Aerosmith to postpone several shows, causing disappointment for fans and a need for rescheduling. The legendary rock band will be back on tour in early 2024, with previously purchased tickets honored for the new dates.

Heartbreaking News for Steven Tyler

In an emotional statement shared on Instagram, Steven Tyler shared the heartbreaking news that his doctor has advised him to refrain from using his microphone for the next month. The vocal cord damage occurred during a performance on Saturday, and Tyler will now have to focus on his recovery.

Postponed Shows and New Dates

The impact of the injury has led to the rescheduling of six upcoming Aerosmith concerts. Originally planned for the near future, these shows will now be held in January and February 2024. The affected cities include Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh, Washington, D.C., and Toronto, Canada.

Despite the delay, fans who have already purchased tickets can rest assured that their tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. However, for those who are unable to attend the new shows, refunds will be available upon request.

A Disappointing Change of Plans

The sudden change in plans comes as a major disappointment for both the band and their loyal fans. Aerosmith had recently kicked off their “Peace Out: The Farewell Tour” just over a week ago in Philadelphia. The highly anticipated show marked the return of Aerosmith’s original members, including Joe Perry on lead guitar, Brad Whitford on rhythm guitar, Tom Hamilton on bass, and, of course, Steven Tyler on vocals. Drummer Joey Kramer has been on a temporary leave of absence since March 2022, with John Douglas filling in behind the drum kit.
