Steven Tyler has 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 made its return to Sin City on Wednesday night.

Tyler was never referred to seeking treatment for substance abuse but he did seem to make a nod to it at one point during the show.
Tyler would say: “It’s either too much or too little all the time. I’m a big fan of too much.”
Steven Tyler would state this to a woman in the front row after she said something to him, allegedly about something to do with substances. He then sang “Toys in the Attic.”
Tyler was energized in his first Vegas show back with his voice sounding especially strong. The only setback seemed to be a consistent issue with the microphone pack not working well, which he attributed to his belt being too tight.
“I’m on the edge right now,” he said after singing, naturally, “Livin’ on the Edge.”
It is noted that Wednesday marked Aerosmith’s first time back in Las Vegas since Tyler’s time in treatment. Due to the band’s frontman’s absence. The group was forced to call off its June and July residency dates at the Dolby Live theater at Park MGM.
Back in May, the Boston-based group said that they were “devastated” to have to cancel the eight shows on the famous Strip, but knew it was the correct thing to do for the sake of Tyler’s sobriety.
Tyler also seemed to have a soft spot for debauchery on Wednesday night, and teased the audience during the Vegas show. He would say: “You all behaving yourselves?” He asked this to a section of the crowd, most of whom answered that they were not. Tyler replied, “No? Good!”
