After suffering a relapse, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler has voluntarily entered rehab and the band announced via their social media that they have to cancel their June and July Las Vegas residency tour dates. Tyler — who has struggled with maintaining his sobriety in the past — relapsed after taking pain medication following a foot surgery. An incredibly physical performer, the surgery was done in preparation for the stage in 2022, which included the residency at Dolby Live in Vegas.
This is a heartbreaking reminder that the battle with addiction is a never-ending one. Meanwhile, Aerosmith says the plan is to pick up the live dates again in September. All tickets will be refunded for the June and July dates. You can read the full statement from the band below.
As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked 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.
We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we’ll let you know any further updates as soon as we can. We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.
Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time.
