BOSTON – Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has volunteered to join a rehabilitation program, forcing the Boston-based rock band to cancel the first part of their upcoming Las Vegas residency.
Tyler, 74, has made no secret of his lifelong battle with addiction.
“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” the band said posted on social media on Tuesday. “Following foot surgery in preparation for the phase and requiring pain management during the process, he recently relapsed and voluntarily enrolled in a treatment program to focus on his health and recovery.”
The band’s June and July shows in Las Vegas have been canceled and the aim is to perform again in September, the band said.
“We are devastated that we have caused inconvenience to so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows,” the band said.
The band promised refunds for the canceled shows.
