Steven Tyler enters rehab, Aerosmith cancels part of Vegas residency
Aerosmith have announced that they are canceling part of their upcoming Las Vegas residency due to Steven Tyler entering rehab.
The group released the following statement:
“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has been working on his sobriety for many years. After foot surgery to prepare for the step and the need to manage pain during the process, he recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to focus on his health and recovery.
We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we have to cancel our first set of Las Vegas residency dates in June and July while he focuses on his well-being.
We will continue with our 2022 dates from September and will notify you of any further updates as soon as possible. We are devastated to have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to attend our broadcasts.
Thank you for understanding and supporting Steven during this time.
If you purchased your tickets through Ticketmaster you will be refunded and will receive an email with the details shortly, otherwise please contact your point of purchase for more information on refunds.
Aerosmith’s Las Vegas residency dates were scheduled to begin June 17 at Park MGM’s Dolby Live. In March, it was announced that drummer Joey Kramer would be absent from the residency. By USA today, Kramer “…has sadly made the decision to be absent from the band’s concerts in 2022 so that he can focus his full attention on his family during these uncertain times.” Kramer’s replacement will be John Douglas, with the band further noting that Kramer’s not participating in the residency is only a “temporary leave”.
