REPORT: Steven Tyler suffered seizure in Brazil after Aerosmith concert

According to a new report out of Boston, Steven Tyler suffered a seizure following Aerosmith’s September 24 concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil that led to the cancellation of the final four dates of the group’s South American tour.

The Boston Globe reports they were told by a source close to the band that the 69-year-old singer suffered a seizure after the show that led him to return home immediately to seek medical treatment.

It’s not clear what caused the seizure or if Tyler received a diagnosis before flying back to the States, and there’s been no further word on his condition

On Tuesday, Tyler’s girlfriend, Aimee Preston, posted on Instagram a recent picture of herself with the Aerosmith singer alongside a caption of a heart and two praying emojis.

"To everybody in South America....Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico... I'm very sorry and feel like I've let you down,” explained Tyler after the news broke. “I won't be able to continue the last four shows of this tour. I flew back to the US on doctor's orders last night after the show in São Paulo. Please not to worry... I am not in a life threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away, and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances.

“I promise I'll be back...unfortunately, health does not wait and it's something even I can't schedule around our shows... As they say, ‘We humans make plans, and God laughs...’ I love you all and will be back with you soon.”

The South American shows are part of Aerosmith’s farewell tour, “Aero-Vederci Baby!”

No further dates are currently scheduled at this time.
