Aerosmith Cancels Las Vegas Shows for June, July as Steven Tyler Enters Rehab

·2 min read

Aerosmith has cancelled its first set of Las Vegas residency shows in June and July 2022 so that Steven Tyler can recover from a recent relapse in sobriety.

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” the band’s statement starts. “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.”

Tyler has a history of Morton’s neuroma, or swelling of nerves in his feet, and he has undergone several surgeries to improve his condition.

“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,” the statement said.

“We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we’ll let you know any further updates as soon as we can,” Aerosmith added. “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.”
