Key Takeaway

Steven Tyler is forced to take a break from the Aerosmith Farewell tour due to a vocal cord injury, causing a hemorrhage. Rescheduled concerts and ticket options are available for fans.

In an Instagram statement, Tyler shared the heartbreaking news that he received from his doctor, who ordered him to stay away from the microphone for the next 30 days following the throat injury that occurred during Saturday’s performance.

The rock group is postponing their six upcoming concerts in January and February of 2024. The rescheduled shows will take place in Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh, Washington D.C., and Toronto, Canada.

Previously purchased tickets will remain valid for the new dates, and fans will have the option to request a refund if they are unable to attend.

The sudden change of plans is a disappointment for the band, who recently kicked off their “Peace Out: The Farewell Tour” just over a week ago in Philadelphia. The concert featured original Aerosmith members Joe Perry (lead guitar), Brad Whitford (rhythm guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass), and of course, Tyler. John Douglas filled in for drummer Joey Kramer, who has been on temporary leave since March 2022.
