This is not the first instance of tour disruptions for Aerosmith. Earlier in September, Tyler had announced a temporary hiatus from performing, explaining, “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.” The band had then rescheduled some tour dates, prioritizing Tyler’s recovery.

Aerosmith, formed in Boston in 1970, is renowned for its significant contributions to rock music and has released a total of 15 albums. The tour, titled Peace Out farewell tour, commenced on September 2 in Philadelphia and was originally slated to conclude in January 2024. Fans await further updates on the rescheduled tour dates as Tyler undergoes the necessary medical care for his vocal injuries.
