Steven Tyler, the legendary frontman of rock band AEROSMITH, has recently sustained a vocal cord injury, which has led to a postponement of several shows on their farewell tour. The damage to Tyler‘s vocal cords occurred during a concert in Elmont, New York, causing concern among fans and band members alike.
Doctors have advised Tyler to refrain from singing for a period of thirty days to allow for proper healing. Despite the setback, the band has announced rescheduled dates for the impacted shows, ensuring that previously purchased tickets will still be honored. This isn’t the first challenge the band has faced during its 50-year tenure, as Tyler has previously had to cancel shows due to health concerns and legal issues.
Steven said in a statement: “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.”
Tyler‘s vocal troubles have impacted concerts in cities including Chicago, Detroit, Washington, Toronto, Raleigh, and Cleveland.
