At 75, Steven Tyler Forced To Postpone Aerosmith Tour As He Confirms Alarming Health Update(3 photos)

One of the biggest rock stars in the world is Steven Tyler. He is the only one who can fill an arena after arena with his distinctive raspy voice and captivating stage presence. Tyler's influence on Aerosmith's millions of fans worldwide is generational, owing to the band.

On March 26, 1948, Steven Victor Tallarico was born in Manhattan, New York. After Tyler and his bandmate Joe Perry created Aerosmith, they eventually relocated to Boston.

Following a run of successful singles in the 1970s and 1980s, including "Walk This Way" and "Dream On," they maintained the momentum of their explosive career in the 1990s with "Crazy" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," both from the "Armageddon" soundtrack.

The group has become the most successful American hard rock band of all time, amassing a sizable global fan base.

Tyler even went on to make a name for himself by going on to serve as a judge on "American Idol" for two years and by appearing in a number of television series throughout the years, including "Nashville," "The Simpsons," and "Hell's Kitchen."

Due to his tremendously wide vocal range and loud screams, he has been dubbed the "Demon of Screamin'" throughout his career.

But his distinctive voice may also be the cause of his current health problems, as he and his Aerosmith colleagues had to cancel several of their planned "Peace Out Tour" gigs throughout North America after he was told by doctors to take a vacation.

Fans were excited when Aerosmith announced their "Peace Out Tour" in May 2023. They were going to tour several locations in North America with special guests, The Black Crowes, and perform the tunes that the fans had grown to love over the years. Since this would be the band's final tour, it is important not just for the band but also for their fans.

The group then started their tour by playing in Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center in early September. The audience enjoyed themselves, with some of them getting to witness Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, Joe Perry, and Steven Tyler all together on stage for the first time.

Their adventure was cut short, though, when the trio broke terrible news to their followers on their official Instagram account. Tyler said in a statement that he was told by his physicians not to sing for thirty days because he had damaged his vocal cords.

"I regret to inform you that I have been given severe instructions by my doctor not to sing for the next thirty days. I suffered damage to my voice cords during the performance on Saturday, which resulted in bleeding," he stated.

In order to return and give their fans the show they deserve, Aerosmith had to postpone a couple of their performances, the rock star said.

Thankfully, they changed the dates right away, and now they would take place in January and February of 2024. Detroit, Toronto, Raleigh, Chicago, Cleveland, and Washington, D.C. were a few of the cities impacted.

Fortunately, fans' tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates. However, the group promised individuals who had other arrangements that their tickets will be returned via the original place of purchase.

Fans voiced their worries about Aerosmith's frontman as soon as the band posted their news in the comment area.

This does not bode well. I hope he gets better," someone commented.

Given his age, this is not surprising. He's one of Grace Music's best front men ever. And one of the most incredible, influential, and well-known voices in history. One person said, "At his age, singing this material is pure hell."

"Crying?! Scary things. Thirty days doesn't seem like nearly enough time for healing. Particularly given his age," another person wrote.

One person said, "Your health is more important than your career. Heal well, king."

"Oh, please heal ❤️‍🩹 soon rest that lovely, kind voice for the entire world 🌎 💞💞💞," someone wished.

Some individuals who were fortunate to see the original performance recommended the rescheduled dates to other fans, saying they would be well worth the wait.

"It will be worth the wait; I saw the concert on Saturday, and it was incredible. (I swear)," they penned.

Tyler has already experienced health issues in the lead-up to many planned gigs. In December 2022, Fox News released an item stating that the band was forced to postpone their last two Las Vegas residency gigs.

The organization said in a statement at the time, "On the advice of doctors, Steven has to sit these out," even though the specific nature of his illness was not made public. We'll see you in the new year, and keep well."

A few months later, in May 2023, Blabbermouth said that Perry gave Tyler's supporters the reassurance that he was fine and had recovered, saying, "He's doing a hundred percent better."
