Indeed, the emblematic singer Steven Tyler is currently in rehab, without knowing exactly if it is related to a drug problem, alcohol or both.

24 live performances of 90 minutes

Formed in Boston during the year 1970, the mythical group Aerosmith celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. It is precisely to properly celebrate this exceptional event that he held a residency in Las Vegas from April 2019, reported

Only thing is, due to the international Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, this show series was forced to be put on hiatus as of February 2020.

While the health crisis has calmed down a bit, a new residency was scheduled at the Dolby Live of the Park MGM in Las Vegas so as to celebrate this time the 50th anniversary of the release of the first Aerosmith album.

Named Deuces Are Wild, after a hit song from 1994, it was to consist of 24 live performances of 90 minutes taking place between June 17 and December 11, 2022. However, it was without counting on the health problems of the singer Steven Tyler.

A relapse because of recurring pain following a foot surgery

As all the fans of the group know, Steven Tyler suffered for a long time from an addiction to drugs and alcohol. However, he had managed to solve them for many years.

Following a foot surgery, he unfortunately had to face recurring pain that pushed him to relapse into his old bad behaviors. It is precisely to fight again against his addiction problems that he has just started a rehab.

As a result, Aerosmith has been forced to cancel the first set of dates of its Las Vegas residency. The concerts of June and July will not take place. It is in September that the shows will start.

There are still a few tickets available for future performances. Tickets start at $102.28 with taxes and other fees. Nevertheless, we can expect them to go quickly following the cancellation of the first dates.

The recent cancellation of Adele’s residency

This is not the first time this year that a residency has been canceled in Las Vegas shortly before it was to begin. In January, British singer Adele also canceled her series of concerts at Colosseum at Caesars Palace the day before the opening. Some rumors say that it could soon take place at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood, which is also located on the mythical Strip.
