Aerosmith issues official statement
A statement from the band shared on social media about two hours before showtime read: “It is with great disappointment that we are forced to cancel tonight’s show in Las Vegas due to Steven feeling unwell and unable to perform. He is expected to make a full recovery for Monday night’s Las Vegas show. We sincerely apologize for the last minute notice.”
“Tickets purchased through Ticketmaster.com will be automatically refunded. All other refunds will be available at point of purchase.”
Aerosmith is scheduled to end its “Deuces Are Wild” Vegas residency after performances on Thursday, December 8 and Sunday, December 11.
It was back in June that Aerosmith had canceled shows as Tyler had entered a treatment program after relapsing on pain medication following foot surgery. Leading up to the latest run of shows, Aerosmith played Boston’s Fenway Park to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Steven Tyler had recently made his return to perform with Aerosmith. The band had canceled a string of concert dates as part of Aerosmith’s Deuces Are Wild residency show in Las Vegas. However, the band had made its return to Sin City back in September.
