Aerosmith Cancel Shows For Steven Tyler's Health
While the nature of Tyler's medical issues have not been disclosed, a reassuring statement from the band states, "Steven is expected to make a full recovery, with proper rest and treatment he will be back on his feet soon, rocking the world."
Tyler added some reassurance of his own, sharing a message with his fans affected by the cancellation.
"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 U.S. on doctor's orders last night after the show in São Paulo.
"Please not to worry," Tyler continued, "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."
Other members of the band stayed in Brazil, signing autographs and taking photos with fans to show their appreciation
