The band postponed their next six concerts, all of which were rescheduled for January and February 2024. They will play Detroit on Jan. 29; Chicago on Feb. 14; Washington, D.C. on Feb. 17; Toronto on Feb. 21; Raleigh, North Carolina on Feb. 26; and Cleveland on Feb. 29. All previously purchased tickets will be accepted at the new dates. Refunds will be available for fans who cannot attend the new dates.
TMZ is reporting that x-rays showed Tyler’s vocal cords were “mangled” and he can barely speak at the moment.
Tyler is 75. Aerosmith has been together since first forming in 1970.
