Aerosmith Cancels Remainder of Summer Tour
The press release just sent out by Live Nation reads:
Due to injuries STEVEN TYLER sustained last week when he fell from the stage during a concert in Sturgis, SD, doctors have advised the lead singer to take the time to properly recuperate from the accident that resulted in a broken shoulder and stitches to his head. In his current condition, TYLER is unable to tour and the band wants to give him time to get healthy.
Ticket refunds for the rest of the tour dates with special guests ZZ Top will be available at point of purchase.
TYLER fell from the stage during the August 5 show that was part of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Western South Dakota. The mishap occurred while he was dancing during the band’s “Love in an Elevator.” TYLER was subsequently airlifted to a hospital and then returned to Boston to consult with his own doctors.
Aerosmith had been scheduled to play Sprint Center on September 1 with ZZ Top. Quotes from Joe Perry and Brad Whitford after the jump.
