Steven Tyler is one of the most famous frontmen in rock and roll history. Tyler’s unique, shrill voice and unmistakable attitude have made Aerosmith a legendary name for rock aficionados. The band was set for a lengthy residency in Las Vegas this Summer, but that will no longer be happening.
After twelve years of sobriety, Steven Tyler recently relapsed and has entered a treatment program. Tyler recently had foot surgery, and the pain management regimen caused him to relapse. Aerosmith announced via Instagram that their Vegas dates will be put on hold while he works on getting better.
“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.”
The band is optimistic that Steven Tyler will be ready to go for the remainder of Aerosmith’s 2022 dates beginning in September. It has been a wild ride for Aerosmith fans over the years. Hopefully Steven gets the help he needs and gets back to doing what he loves best soon.
