In the beginning of September, Aerosmith announced that they would have to postpone the farewell tour dates they had scheduled for this month to give time to the band’s vocalist Steven Tyler to recover, because his vocal chords were damaged during a show. Now the band said that his condition will force them to posptone all the dates to 2024.
They had dates scheduled for next October, November and December with the Black Crowes as the opening act.
Aerosmith was on the road with the classic members: Joe Perry (Guitar), Steven Tyler (Vocals), Tom Hamilton (Bass) and Brad Whitford (Guitar), who are accompanied by their longtime drum tech John Douglas.
Read the complete Aerosmith statement about the posponement of the tour due to Steven Tyler’s voice:
“To our fans: Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought. His doctor has confirmed that in addition to the damage to his vocal cords, he fractured his larynx which requires ongoing care. He is receiving the best medical treatment available to ensure his recovery is swift, but given the nature of a fracture, he is being told patience is essential.”
“As a result, all the currently scheduled PEACE OUT shows must be postponed to sometime in 2024, with new dates to be announced as soon as we know more. ‘I am heartbroken to not be out there with Aerosmith, my brothers and the incredible Black Crowes, rocking with the best fans in the world. I promise we will be back as soon as we can!’ – Love, Steven”
“All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates, and refunds will be available for those unable to attend once those dates are announced. Fans with questions regarding refunds should reach out to their point of purchase,” the band’s official statement said.
