Due to Steven Tyler’s health condition, Aerosmith was forced to cancel their two shows.
Last Friday night, the band wrote on their official Twitter account about the said announcement. It reads:
“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.”
Initially, Tyler was “expected to make a full recovery for Monday night’s Las Vegas Show,” however, it was later canceled. Tyler explained when announcing the second show cancellation:
“On the advice of my doctor, I’m taking more time to rest.
“There is nowhere we’d rather be than on stage surrounded by the greatest fans in the world.”
Both of these two canceled concerts were part of Aerosmith’s Deuces Are Wild residency at the Park MGM hotel-casino in Sin City.
“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked hard on his sobriety for many years,” the band wrote early this year when they announced that the 2022 tour will be pushed back as Tyler entered the rehabilitation center. “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.”
