The decade's most triggering comedy
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler announced on Monday that the band’s farewell tour was being postponed after he sustained a vocal cord injury.
Tyler, 75, shared a statement through the band’s official Instagram page, expressing his regrets and noting that he had been ordered to rest his voice for at least a month.

“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days. I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show that led to subsequent bleeding,” Tyler wrote. “We’ll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve.”
The post also included a list of cities they were scheduled to perform in the next month, along with new dates.
“All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available for those unable to attend,” the statement concluded. “Fans with questions regarding refunds are asked to reach out to their point of purchase.”
The band’s farewell tour, “Peace Out,” kicked off just over a week earlier — with a show on September 2 in Philadelphia — and was initially scheduled to wrap with a final show in Montreal, Quebec, on January 26.
“It’s not goodbye it’s PEACE OUT! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives. Every night will celebrate the five decades of Aerosmith’s groundbreaking hits as they celebrate 50 years as America’s greatest rock band,” a statement promoting the tour read.
Aerosmith — formed in 1970 by Tyler, Joe Perry (guitar), and Tom Hamilton (bass) — has been performing and touring together for more than five decades, and the band was inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame by performer Kid Rock in 2001.
