Aerosmith Suspends US Tour Because Singer Steven Tyler Checked Into Rehab

The legendary American musician Steven Tyler, singer of the famous band Aerosmith, forced the rock group to suspend its tour in the United States because he entered drug rehabilitation treatment.

The 74-year-old rocker has previous experiences that are in the public domain in recovering from his addictions and, in this case, he had a relapse as a result of using pain medication from a recent foot operation, according to the band in a statement.

Likewise, Aerosmith confirmed through its social networks that it suspends for this reason its next shows in Las Vegas from June 17 that extended to July, within the framework of its “Deuces Are Wild” tour.

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. Following his foot operation to prepare for the stage and the need to manage pain in the process, he relapsed and voluntarily entered treatment to focus on his health and recovery,” the band explained.

The group also reported that they will resume their presentations in September.

The band has achieved 21 Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 entries, nine number ones on the Mainstream Rock Tracks, four Grammy Awards, and ten MTV Video Music Awards. She has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

It is an American rock band formed in Boston in 1970. Its members are: Steven Tyler (singer), Joe Perry (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass), Joey Kramer (drums) and Brad Whitford (guitar).

Tyler and Perry are also known as “The Bad Boys of Boston” or “Toxic Twins” – a nickname by which the two leaders are known for their historical drug addiction. The nickname is a nod to Jagger-Richards, the “Glimmer Twins”.

In June 2016, Steven Tyler said the group was splitting up and going on a “farewell tour.” In July however, Joe Perry denied these statements, commenting in a note for Rolling Stone magazine that: “At this point in our lives and careers, maybe it’s okay to say ‘OK, it’s the end of an era, but there’s a new on the horizon. So I don’t know if it will be comfortable to say ‘Farewell Tour’ and make it bigger than it is”.

In August 2018, the band announced that they would have a set show at the new Park MGM in Las Vegas, in the former Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino. In principle, 18 concerts were planned during 2019, starting in April, ending the total of the tour on June 4, 2020, touring the different continents. But due to the measures taken by some countries associated with COVID-19, various cancellations were unfortunately generated, such as in the case of South America, Europe and the United States.

Likewise, the band showed solidarity by issuing a message of prevention and responsibility following the trend of many bands with the hashtag #BeatTheVirus on March 16, 2020 through its official Instagram account.

On December 7, 2020, through its official page, the band announced the rescheduling of the European tour, managing to resume the commitment to its fans towards 2021.
