What happened to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler?

On September 11, 2023, Steven Tyler announced he was suffering from vocal cord damage he sustained from performing during the previous weekend.

As a result, Aerosmith had to postpone and reschedule their September tour dates.

Six of their dates for Peace Out: The Farewell Tour have been rescheduled for January and February 2024.

“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days," Steven said in a statement.

"I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show that led to subsequent bleeding.

"We’ll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve."

Previously, the band experienced a setback with their Las Vegas residency when Steven relapsed after his foot surgery and had to seek treatment.

On May 24, 2022, Aerosmith said on Twitter: "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 devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows."

The legendary rock group also thanked fans for their support of the band and Steven at this time.

Did Aerosmith cancel their Peace Out Tour?

On September 2, 2023, Aerosmith's farewell tour kicked off in Philadelphia.

Their final concert together is scheduled for February 29, 2024, in Cleveland.

Following Steven's rehabilitation and absence from the band, Aerosmith canceled the June and July dates of their Deuces Are Wild concert series that were a part of their 2022 Las Vegas residency.

Toward the end of the same year, the group canceled the last four shows of the residency.

"On the advice of doctors, Steven has to sit these out," Aerosmith revealed via social media.

Steven added: "I’m taking more time to rest. There is nowhere we’d rather be than on stage surrounded by the greatest fans in the world."

On May 1, 2023, Aerosmith announced they would be retiring as a band.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said he believes "it's about time" to retire as the founding band members continue to grow in age.

Perry said: "I think it's about time. It's kind of a chance to celebrate the 50 years we’ve been out here.

"You never know how much longer everybody’s going to be healthy to do this.… It’s been a while since we’ve actually done a real tour. 

"We did that run in Vegas, which was great. It was fun, but [we’re] kind of anxious to get back on the road."

In a statement released to The Associated Press, Steven teased fans to get ready for an unforgettable final tour.

"We’re opening up Pandora’s Box one last time to present our fans with the Peace Out tour," he said.

"Be there or beware as we bring all the toys out of the attic. Get ready."

Who is Steven Tyler?

Steven Tyler is the lead vocalist for the rock group Aerosmith.

Tyler was born on March 26, 1948, in New York.

He also plays the piano for the rock group which has been around since 1970.

Tyler is a father to Liv Tyler, Mia Tyler, Chelsea Tyler, and Taj Monroe Tallarico.

In 2019 Tyler celebrated nine years of sobriety and spoke to GQ magazine about his journey.

"I was a beautiful little boy who lived in the woods of New England, New Hampshire.

"So I grew up in the woods listening to the wind. It was just silence and Mother Nature, no one around – it was an awful lot of magic there.

"When I started smoking weed, in '65, '66, it kind of enhanced those magic feelings."

He also told the outlet that fame fueled his battle with addiction.

"It was more or less the thing to do," he claimed. "I don't think there were any bands that even knew what sober was."
