Aerosmith postpone farewell tour due to Steven Tyler injuries

Aerosmith has postponed plans to resume its Peace Out farewell tour after Steven Tyler sustained vocal cord damage during a recent concert in Elmont, NY.

The singer’s injury originally led to the Boston band postponing a series of fall shows, and now the group is sharing a further update on their plans moving forward.

“To our fans: Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought,” says Aerosmith. “His doctor has confirmed that in addition to the damage to his vocal cords, he 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.

“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.”

“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,” adds Tyler. “I promise we will be back as soon as we can!”

All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates, and refunds will be available for those unable to attend once those dates are announced. Fans with questions regarding refunds should reach out to their point of purchase.

Aerosmith – who launched the farewell series in Philadelphia, PA on September 2 – recently had its new Greatest Hits collection debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart.
