Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music CriticAerosmith singer Steven Tyler has entered rehab, necessitating the cancellation of a run of shows in Las Vegas this summer, the veteran band announced on social media Tuesday.The group said in a joint statement that Tyler, whose previous experience with rehab is well-known, relapsed as a result of dealing with pain management in the process of having foot surgery.Refunds for the concerts, part of the group’s “Deuces Are Wild” residency at the Dolby Live theater at Park MGM, will be automatically processed through Ticketmaster or can be obtained at the point of purchase, the band said.
The announcement added that a further set of residency shows is expected to proceed beginning in September. “As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” the statement began. “After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery.“We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must cancel our first set of Las Vegas residency dates this June and July while he focuses on his well-being.“We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we’ll let you know any further updates as soon as we can,” the announcement concluded. “We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.
