The rock world has been hit with unsettling news: Aerosmith, one of the most iconic bands in history, has been forced to delay their much-anticipated “Peace Out” farewell tour. The reason behind this sudden halt is the unfortunate vocal cord injury sustained by the legendary front man, Steven Tyler.
The Gravity of the Injury
After the Saturday concert, Tyler experienced complications that led him to seek medical advice. In an emotional disclosure on the band’s official social media channels, he said, “I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days.” Delving deeper into the details of his ailment, Tyler revealed, “I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show that led to subsequent bleeding. We’ll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve.” While fans worldwide are undoubtedly disappointed, the health and well-being of the artists are of paramount importance. Tyler’s representatives, when reached out to by Fox News Digital, corroborated the announcement but refrained from diving into additional particulars of the situation.
Adjustments to the Tour Schedule
Unforeseen challenges require adept solutions. And in response to this medical predicament, Aerosmith has swiftly rescheduled the affected tour legs to ensure that fans do not miss out on their final live performances:
- Detroit: Jan. 29
- Chicago: Feb. 14
- Washington, D.C.: Feb. 17
- Toronto: Feb. 21
- Raleigh: Feb. 26
- Cleveland: Feb. 29
Guidance for Ticket Holders
In light of the new tour dates, the band has made provisions to accommodate their fan base. All tickets that have already been purchased will remain valid for these new dates.

The Journey of the ‘Peace Out’ Tour So Far
It’s important to recognise the magic Aerosmith has brought to the stage from the start of the “Peace Out” tour despite this setback. On September 2, a thrilling performance at the Wells Fargo Centre in Philadelphia served as the tour’s official launch. The performance list included timeless songs like “Sweet Emotion,” “Walk This Way,” and a special homage to Fleetwood Mac’s “Stop Messin’ Around.”
Prior Health Concerns and Steven Tyler
This is, unfortunately, not the inaugural instance of health concerns shadowing Aerosmith’s plans. In December 2022, the concluding two shows of their Las Vegas residency were called off following medical advice related to Tyler’s health. The bond between the band members is evident in their supportive statements, like the one shared during Tyler’s sobriety challenges: “As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years… he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery.”
Legal Tangles Amid Health Issues
Navigating through the complexities of health issues, Tyler is concurrently grappling with a sexual assault lawsuit. He has vehemently denied all allegations presented by Julia Misley in the Los Angeles Superior Court in April.
In Conclusion: The Spirit of Aerosmith Remains Unyielding
Even though recent events temporarily took the focus away from Aerosmith’s farewell tour, the band’s dedication to its fans has not changed. There is no place we’d rather be than on stage surrounded by the best fans in the world, said Aerosmith’s heart and soul Steven Tyler in response to this. The sentiment is shared by the innumerable rock legends fans who are eagerly anticipating their victorious comeback to the stage.
