Steven Tyler seriously ill, tour canceled and singer hospitalized
Steven Tyler has abruptly canceled his band’s last four South American shows to receive “immediate care” for “unexpected medical issues,” according to a statement released yesterday (Sep. 26). The canceled dates of the tour – billed as the band’s “farewell” tour – run from September 27 to October 7.
“Steven is expected to make a full recovery,” the band said in a statement released on Tyler’s official Twitter account. “With proper rest and treatment he will be back on his feet soon rocking the world.”
The exact cause of Tyler’s medical issues was not disclosed, but the singer, 69, shared a statement on Twitter, reassuring fans his condition was not too serious: “Please not to worry, I am not in a life threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away, and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances. I promise I’ll be back.“
Tyler also apologized to fans writing, “I’ve let you down.” Aerosmith leader is not the only member of the band to worry their fans: in July 2016 guitarist Joe Perry was hospitalized after collapsing on stage while performing with his band the Hollywood Vampires. He made a full recovery and returned to performing days later.
