In a new statement shared on various forms of their social media, Aerosmith announced that they will be canceling the first set of the group’s Las Vegas Residency tour dates this Summer, which impacts the group’s touring scheduling in June and July. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has, according to the below press release relapsed after working on his sobriety and has since entered a program to focus on recovery and his well-being.
Did this Aerosmith icon allegedly do drugs with this A-list actor? The press release would read: “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.
If you purchased your tickets via Ticketmaster, you will be refunded and will receive an email shortly with details, otherwise please contact your point of purchase for information on refunds.”
A photo of Steven Tyler looking gaunt a few weeks ago with fans at The Barking Crab restaurant in Boston has surfaced, a photo after his relapse.
According to Far Out Magazine, Aerosmith icon Joe Perry would write in his autobiography how the group’s signature album, ‘Rocks’ was to re-identify Aerosmith as ‘America’s ultimate garage band’
“[The point of Rocks] was to reidentify us as America’s ultimate garage band, with blistering guitars, blistering vocals, balls-to-the-wall smash-your-eardrums production. The cover showed five diamonds, one for each of us. We saw that record as a jewel, the culmination of all our angst and anger and excitement and joy as go-for-broke rock and rollers.”
