On Friday, Aerosmith announced on Instagram that lead singing, Steven Tyler’s vocal cord injury was worse than anticipated, causing the farewell tour to be pushed further.
Aerosmith’s farewell tour has been put on hold. Following a change in plans earlier this month after lead singer Steven Tyler suffered vocal cord damage during a performance in New York, the rock band revealed on Instagram that Tyler's condition was more serious than initially believed since he also fractured his larynx. The remainder of the tour will now take place the following year.
The band issued a statement regarding Tyler's injuries, saying he was receiving the best medical treatment available to ensure his recovery is quick, but given the nature of a fracture, he is being told patience is essential.
The 75-year-old Tyler also stated that he was "heartbroken" not performing with his band "brothers" and the Black Crowes, "rocking with the best fans in the world." He assured fans that he will be back as soon as he can.
Aerosmith's Peace Out tour launched in Philadelphia on September 3rd and was originally scheduled to end in Montreal in January before Tyler's injury occurred on the third show in New York on September 10th.
On the broadcast in early September, Tyler disclosed that he had "suffered vocal cord damage" that had "subsequently led to hemorrhage.” He had stated that in order to return and give the fans the show they deserve, he might have to postpone a few dates.
