Steven Tyler is one of the most down to earth “iconic rock stars” I have ever had the pleasure to talk to. One time he gave me a one on one TWENTY minute chat about life, his dad, Idol and more. I wish him a speedy recovery.
Breaking news out of the Aerosmith camp as the band are forced to cancel the final four dates on their South American “AeroVederci” tour due to undisclosed medical issues.
In a statement from the band’s official website, Steven Tyler “is seeking immediate care and has been advised by his doctors that he cannot travel or perform at this time.”
The statement continues that Tyler is “expected to make a full recovery. With proper rest and treatment he will be back on his feel soon rocking the world.”
Tyler issued his own personal statement regarding the canceled tour dates:
“To everybody in South America….Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico… I’m very sorry and feel like I’ve let you down… 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…”
