Just over two weeks on from postponing six dates of their 2023 Peace Out farewell tour after Steven Tyler suffered vocal cord damage, Aerosmith have now announced that the whole thing is being moved to “sometime” next year.
The band have shared that “Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought”, and the frontman not only damaged his vocal cords, he also “fractured his larynx which requires ongoing care”.
“He is receiving the best medical treatment available to ensure his recovery is swift, but given the nature of a fracture, he is being told patience is essential,” they write in a statement.
“As a result, all the currently scheduled Peace Out shows must be postponed to sometime in 2024, with new dates to be announced as soon as we know more.”
Steven himself adds: “I am heartbroken to not be out there with Aerosmith, my brothers and the incredible Black Crowes, rocking with the best fans in the world. I promise we will be back as soon as we can! Love, Steven”
