VIDEO: Aerosmith perform second show without Joey Kramer in Las Vegas

Aerosmith performed their second Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas residency show without drummer Joey Kramer in the lineup on April 26.

Kramer – who is recovering from a minor accident this past week that resulted in a shoulder injury – had his drum tech, John Douglas, perform in his place on Friday, as he did during an April 23 gig at the Park MGM's Park Theater.

The Boston outfit roared through their standard 17-song set with Douglas, which brings to a close the first series of shows during the 2019 residency and will continue in June, July, and later in the year.

Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist John Katsilometes confirmed Kramer’s health issue on Thursday, tweeting: “From @Aerosmith management. @joeykramer had a minor accident and is totally fine, but he hurt his shoulder in the process so he won't be playing tomorrow.’" Tomorrow meaning Friday @ParkTheaterLV. No other information at this time.”

Aerosmith have teamed up with producer Giles Martin – known for creating the soundscape for "The Beatles Love" by Cirque du Soleil show – for the Deuces Are Wild series, which is being billed as “one of the most immersive, state-of-the art audio and video technology experiences in Las Vegas.”

“Thank you #BlueArmy for rocking Las Vegas with us,” posted Aerosmith on social media. “We will be back at the @ParkTheaterLV on June 19th!”
