Aerosmith have cancelled several tour dates as lead singer Steven Tyler is suffering from “unexpected medical issues”.
The 69-year-old posted a statement on his official Twitter page earlier today (September 26th) in which he announced he is “seeking immediate care” for medical reasons. There was no further elaboration on what those medical reasons were. However, as a result, the band has been forced to cancel the last four shows of their South American tour, as Tyler has been advised against travelling and performing by medical professionals.
The rocker flew back to the U.S. last night after the band’s show in Sao Paulo, Brazil, adding “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.”
