Steven Tyler suffered “vocal cord damage” after Aerosmith’s concert Saturday in New York, forcing the band to postpone a series of upcoming shows on its farewell tour.
“I’m heartbroken to say that I have been under strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days,” Tyler shared on the group’s social media channels on Monday.
“I suffered damage to my vocal cords during Saturday’s show, which resulted in some bleeding. We will have to reschedule a few dates so we can come back and give you the performance you deserve.”

The group, a staple of the sector for 50 years, began its farewell “Peace Out” tour in Philadelphia at the beginning of September with 40 concerts scheduled on the calendar.
Tyler’s health has already caused concern at Aerosmith. In December 2022, the band canceled the final two concerts of its Las Vegas residency.
“On the advice of doctors, Steven must abstain,” the group wrote at the time. “Stay healthy and we’ll see you in the new year!”
In May, the group announced that their Las Vegas residency dates in June and July had been canceled due to Tyler’s relapse.
“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has been working toward his sobriety for many years,” the group wrote. “After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the need to manage pain during the process, he recently relapsed and voluntarily enrolled in a treatment program to focus on his health and recovery.”

In addition to health issues, Tyler faces a sexual assault lawsuit. In April, Tyler filed a response to the lawsuit on March 28 in Los Angeles Superior Court, denying the allegations against him. The lawsuit was filed against him by Julia Misley, who accused the singer-songwriter of sexual assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
