music news 26/05/2022

Aerosmith’s lead man Steven Tyler has entered rehab, forcing the band to cancel all their ‘Deuces are Wild’ Las Vegas concerts before September.

The band released the following statement on Twitter yesterday morning (NZT):

"As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked hard on his sobriety for many years.

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.

We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must cancel our first set of Las Vegas residency dates this June and July while he focuses on his well-being.”

The band planned on playing a huge number of consecutive shows in Vegas to celebrate 50 years of rocking out together, doing at least one show a week - sometimes up to three in one week - from June to December, with only a month off in between (October).

Their remaining tour dates are still up on their website. They plan to perform 18 times from September 4th to December 11th, all in Las Vegas. 

We wish Steven all the best on his road to recovery. He’s a music legend and we hope he recovers soon.
