Tens of thousands of fans who were hoping to see Steven Tyler on Aerosmith’s final tour, Peace Out: The Farewell Tour, were disappointed to learn that six of the scheduled concerts had to be postponed this week.
The renowned rock group announced on Instagram that their September 12 show in Toronto, September 15 show in Chicago, September 18 show in Detroit, September 21 show in Raleigh, and September 27 show in Washington, D.C. have all been rescheduled for early 2024.
Unfortunately, Steven Tyler, the singer for Aerosmith, is sick. He posted on Instagram that he was told by doctors not to sing for the next 30 days because he had serious damage to his vocal cords.
“To all our fans,” the statement begins.
“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days. 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.”
Aerosmith added: “All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available for those unable to attend. Fans with questions regarding refunds are asked to reach out to their point of purchase.”
The Farewell Tour dates, which run from September 2 (in Philadelphia) to January 26 (in Montreal), were made public on May 1.
But due to the delays, the tour’s conclusion has been pushed back. It is said that Aerosmith will resume their tour on Monday, October 11.
It’s great that the band has made the decision to give their devoted following one final tour, especially considering their varying ages. Since Tyler turned 75 in March, one can only speculate as to what kind of physical effects a 40-show tour might have had on him.
It’s not surprising that he is willing to go above and beyond what is expected of him, considering his history of selflessness.
The lead singer of Aerosmith gave $500,000 in 2019 to support the renovation of an 82-acre building south of Memphis into a safe haven for women who have been mistreated and neglected.
“Janie’s House,” which draws inspiration from Aerosmith’s 1989 hit ballad “Janie’s Got a Gun,” is a haven for women who have nowhere else to go.
Let’s hope Steven Tyler heals quickly so he can resume his amazing self.
