PHILADELPHIA — Aerosmith has had to reschedule several performances on their farewell tour due to lead singer Steven Tyler’s recent vocal cord injury, as Tyler himself revealed on Instagram.
The injury, sustained during a performance, has necessitated a 30-day period of vocal rest, prompting the band to postpone a number of tour dates. In his Instagram post, the 75-year-old Tyler expressed his disappointment and commitment to providing fans with the high-quality performances they deserve.
The band, renowned for hits like “Dream On,” “Walk This Way,” and “Sweet Emotion,” kicked off their “Peace Out” farewell tour on September 2 with a memorable show in Philadelphia.
The affected performance took place on Long Island, New York, last Saturday. Originally, the 40-date tour was set to conclude with a New Year’s Eve show in their hometown of Boston and a final performance scheduled for January 26 in Montreal.
The rescheduled dates are as follows: January 29 in Detroit, February 14 in Chicago, February 17 in Washington D.C., February 21 in Toronto, February 26 in Raleigh, North Carolina, and February 29 in Cleveland, as stated in the Instagram announcement. (ai/mnm/Sourced online)
