Aerosmith have announced that Steven Tyler’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought and the band has been forced to postpone their 2023 tour to “sometime in 2024.” The news, shared on September 29 at 9:30 a.m. ET, noted “in addition to the damage to his vocal cords, [Tyler] fractured his larynx which requires ongoing care.” The news follows the temporary suspension of their farewell tour, “Peace Out,” that was announced on Sept. 11 Tyler injured his vocal cords during their Sept. 9 concert. In the post, Tyler wrote, “I’m heartbroken to not be out there with Aerosmith, my brothers and the incredible Black Crowes, rocking with the best fans in the world. I promise we will be back as soon as we can!”

The announcement noted Tyler “is receiving the best medical treatment available to ensure his recovery is swift, but given the nature of a fracture, he is being told patience is essential. New dates [will] be announced as son as we know more.”

All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available for those unable to attend. Fans with questions regarding refunds are asked to reach out to their point of purchase.

Aerosmith were just three shows in to their tour, which opened on Sept. 2. The “Peace Out” tour, announced on May 1, 2023, had been teased for several days, and subsequently revealed 40 North American dates with special guest The Black Crowes. The tour celebrates the five decades of Aerosmith’s groundbreaking hits; drummer Joey Kramer is not accompany them. ‘“While Joey remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith,” the band stated in the tour’s original announcement, “he has regrettably made the decision to sit out… to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”

Watch Aerosmith perform a favorite on the tour’s Sept. 2 opening concert.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members have sold more than 150 million albums. In a joint statement, the four-time GRAMMY® award-winners said, “It’s not goodbye it’s Peace Out! Get ready and walk this way, you’re going to get the best show of our lives.” THX will bring their THX Certified Live! high-fidelity experience on the road, calibrating each arena with leading-edge technology.

Produced by Live Nation, the tour, originally expected to wrap on Jan. 26, 2024, has now been extended until Feb. 29 to accommodate the reschedule dates. A highlight of the tour will be a stop in Boston for Aerosmith’s special hometown show on New Year’s Eve. Tickets are available here.
