It looks like South American will have to wait to see Aerosmith’s Aero-Vaderci, Baby tour dates, as iconic frontman Steven Tyler has been taken to an undisclosed hospital for “immediate care.”
In a press release, Tyler said the following:
“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 US on doctor’s orders last night after the show in São Paulo. Please not to worry… 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… – Steven Tyler
Thank you all for your understanding and support.”
The legendary singer has been hospitalized several times in the last ten years, and most notably for injuries to his legs and subsequent rehabilitation due to a motorcycle accident he suffered in 1980, while the band was recording their album Rock in a Hard Place. Tyler has also been hospitalized for fainting on stage during the Sturgis motorcycle festival, and for vocal chord repair in 2006.
