Due to vocal cord injuries suffered by lead singer Steven Tyler, US rock band Aerosmith had to cancel six of their North American farewell tour dates.
The group had been scheduled to perform in Toronto on Tuesday as part of their Peace Out tour, but that performance has been postponed until February 2024.
Their newest show is now scheduled for Tampa, Florida the following month.
Frontman Tyler, 74, wrote in an online message that he was “heartbroken.”
I regret to inform you that I have been given strong medical instructions not to sing for the upcoming 30 days.
On Saturday’s performance [in Elmont, New York], I damaged my vocal cords, which caused severe haemorrhage.
A handful of our performances will need to be postponed so that we can return and give you the show you deserve.
In the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, Aerosmith had successes like Dream On, Walk This Way, and I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.
After Tyler entered treatment last year, they had to cut back on their Las Vegas residency.
Their farewell tour was originally planned to end on January 26 in Montreal, but it will now continue into February, with the final performance taking place on February 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Additionally impacted are performances in Raleigh, North Carolina, Washington, DC, Detroit, and Chicago.
Fans have the option of holding onto their tickets, which are still good for the new dates, or asking for a refund.
