Aerosmith Cancels Upcoming Shows Due To Steven Tyler’s Inability To Perform
Aerosmith was getting ready for their Las Vegas residency concert. Still, the band released a recent statement, only two hours before the show, on their social media platforms and disclosed that their gig on December 2 was canceled as Steven Tyler didn’t feel well enough to perform.
“It is with great disappointment that we are forced to cancel tonight’s show in Las Vegas due to Steven feeling unwell and unable to perform,” wrote the act’s official statement. “He is expected to make a full recovery for Monday night’s Las Vegas show.”
The act further promised a refund to any fans who had bought tickets for the show. They stated, “We sincerely apologize for the last-minute notice. Tickets purchased through Ticketmaster.com will be automatically refunded. All other refunds will be available at the point of purchase.”
It wasn’t disclosed why Tyler felt unable to perform, and the show was canceled, but the act promised that the singer’s condition would improve and the trouble would be a short-term one. They emphasized they would be ready to take the stage once again a few days later. With Tyler’s well-known struggle with addiction, the Aerosmith audience might only hope that the singer’s condition has nothing to do with that.
The band is planning to end their ‘Deuces Are Wild’ Vegas residency with only a few shows left, so only time will tell when Steve’s will improve and perform again. Until then, it seemed like even though a few fans might be pissed that the show was canceled, Tyler’s health as a performer, first and foremost, mattered to the band.
