We just checked in with Aerosmith’s representative to get an update on the band’s Steven Tyler, who fell off a catwalk during the band’s Aug. 5 show in Sturgis, S.D. There was no official update on his condition, but the band has cancelled tonight’s concert in Winnipeg, which would indicate that Tyler is still on the mend. No word on forthcoming dates.

His wife, Billie, has been updating Tyler’s condition on Twitter.  She tweeted that he broke his shoulder and has stitches in his head and back, according to MTV.

Billie Tyler says the band and Tyler are back in their Boston hometown.

As we noted earlier, this has been a particularly tough tour for Aerosmith healthwise. At some point, three of the five members-Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Tyler– have missed dates due to surgery or injury.  The band is touring with ZZ Top.
