Aerosmith have canceled their remaining shows in Las Vegas due to Steven Tyler’s ongoing health problems.
Last week, the band had to postpone two scheduled performances at Park MGM’s Dolby Live (December 2 and 5) when their frontman was unspecified with an illness.
The group had previously played 12 concerts of their ‘Deuces Are Wild’ residency, and were scheduled to play a final pair of shows in Las Vegas tonight (December 8) and Sunday (December 11).
However, Aerosmith have now confirmed that those dates will no longer be taking place. “To all his fans … We are very sorry to announce that we have canceled these last two concerts in Las Vegas,” reads a new statement on social media.
“On the advice of the doctors, Steven must sit these.”
They told him: “Stay healthy and see you in the new year!”
The notice indicates that tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will be automatically refunded. Other customers will be able to get a refund at the point of sale (see tweet below).
In its original statement, Aerosmith informed fans that Tyler was “sick and unable to perform” but said it is “hopefully making a full recovery” in time for Monday’s performance.
“We sincerely apologize for the last minute announcement,” they said.
The Las Vegas residency was announced in March and kicked off in September, marking Aerosmith’s first live performances since February 2020.
The tour was originally scheduled to begin in June, but was postponed in May after Tyler checked into drug rehab. At the time, a representative for the band said the singer was “very well and looking forward to getting back on stage”.
