Aerosmith postpone remaining farewell tour dates to 2024 due to Steven Tyler's vocal injury

Aerosmith announced Friday that they are postponing their farewell tour until next year so frontman Steven Tyler can recover from a recent vocal injury.

"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," the band said in a statement posted to social media. "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."

The statement concluded, "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."

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers said that all previously purchased tickets will remain valid for their rescheduled 2024 tour dates, including those postponed earlier this month. Those who are unable to attend the new dates will be able to request a refund.

In his own statement, Tyler added, "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!"

Earlier this month, Aerosmith announced that they had to postpone six shows in the U.S. and Canada after Tyler sustained "vocal cord damage" less than two weeks into their Peace Out farewell tour. Those dates have since 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," Tyler said at the time. "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."

The Peace Out tour, which began at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Sept. 2, features the band performing their greatest hits, including "Sweet Emotion," "Walk This Way," and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."
