Aerosmith made an announcement on Friday, revealing the unfortunate cancellation of the remaining 2023 dates for their “Peace Out” tour.
In a Facebook post, the band, led by Steven Tyler, explained that they were postponing all upcoming tour dates for 2023 and 2024 due to Tyler’s “vocal injury,” which they now disclosed to be more severe than initially thought.
To our fans: Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought,” the post conveyed. “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,” it further explained.
“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,” the message continued.
The post concluded with a heartfelt comment from Steven Tyler expressing his deep sadness.
“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,” the message from the lead singer conveyed. “I promise we will be back as soon as we can! – Love, Steven.”
This update follows a prior announcement earlier this month, where the band had shared that they would need to reschedule several tour dates in 2024 due to his vocal injury, as doctors advised him to refrain from singing for a period of 30 days.
“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days,” Steven Tyler shared. “I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show that led to subsequent bleeding. We’ll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve.’ – Steven Tyler.”
“All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates,” the statement assured. “Refunds will be available for those unable to attend. Fans with questions regarding refunds are asked to reach out to their point of purchase.”
The “Peace Out” tour commenced on September 2 in Philadelphia, with shows scheduled throughout the remainder of the year until concluding in January 2024. Further details about the tour can be obtained from the band’s official website.
