Aerosmith Cancels Remaining Summer Tour Dates
Aerosmith has cancelled all the remaining tour dates on their summer tour. The announcement came after frontman Steven Tyler took a nasty fall from the stage in Sturgis, South Dakota last week. The accident happened during the performance of “Love in an Elevator.” Tyler was initially treated at a local hospital before returning to Boston to continue treatment under care of his own doctors.
In response to the tour cancellation, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said, “Words can’t express the sadness I feel for having to cancel this tour,” said guitarist Joe Perry. “We hope we can get the Aerosmith machine up and running again as soon as possible.”
Tyler’s spill marked the second accident during this Aerosmith tour. He also sprained his leg in July postponing several Florida dates. Aerosmith said refunds will be issued for all tickets purchased for cancelled shows.
