Aerosmith has postponed all of the remaining shows on its farewell tour until 2024 because of a vocal injury suffered by its frontman, Steven Tyler, according to a statement made by the rock band on Facebook.
Tyler hurt his vocal cords during the band’s Sept. 9 performance at the UBS Arena in New York. His injury is “more serious than initially thought,” the statement said, involving a fractured larynx in addition to vocal cord damage.
The band will honor previously purchased tickets for rescheduled dates of the Peace Out tour and refunds will be available for those unable to attend the new dates, the statement said.
“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,” Tyler said in the statement. “I promise we will be back as soon as we can!”
