Steven Tyler Drug Claim After Aerosmith Threat Revealed


Steven Tyler allegedly threatened that he would cancel Aerosmith’s performance at Twin Cities Summer Jam at Canterbury Park in Shakopee in Minnesota if the venue wouldn’t let fans fill empty VIP seats that had huge ticket prices. Tyler made a vicious remark when fans were less than enthusiastic during a part of the show. Tyler also revealed where he got clean from drugs.

Star Tribune wrote in a review, “Other high points were a crazed ‘Livin’ on the Edge,’ an animated ‘Love in an Elevator,’ a frenetic ‘Toys in the Attic,’ and an emotional ‘Dream On’ during which Tyler segued from playing piano to screaming atop it.

He’s so unpredictable. Early in the evening, he shouted “Thank you, St. Paul.” During the encore, he gave a shout-out to Hazelden, the treatment facility that he said saved his life.

Opening for Aerosmith was the aggressively bad Buckcherry, which made noise on hard-rock radio in the late ’90s and the ’00s. Frontman Josh Todd even resorted to lame covers of ‘Footloose,’ ‘Jungle Boogie’ and ‘Proud Mary’ to try to keep the crowd’s attention. Epic fail.”
