Steven Tyler Sustains Vocal Cord Injury, Aerosmith Postpone 30 Days of Touring
In a statement shared on social media by Aerosmith, Tyler says, I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days. I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show that led to subsequent bleeding. We’ll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve.
"All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available for those unable to attend. Fans with questions regarding refunds are asked to reach out to their point of purchase," reads a second part of the post.
Six impacted dates have been rescheduled for next year and can be seen below.
The tour is set to resume its regular schedule on Oct. 11 in Tampa, Florida. Drummer Joey Kramer, however, won't be featured on this final run. At the time the tour was announced, Aerosmith shared a joint statement, informing fans, "While Joey remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably made the decision to sit out the currently scheduled touring dates to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey's unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed."
