Aerosmith has announced they are canceling part of their upcoming Las Vegas residency due to Steven Tyler entering rehab.

The band issued the following statement:

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. 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. 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.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time.

If you purchased your tickets via Ticketmaster, you will be refunded and will receive an email shortly with details, otherwise please contact your point of purchase for information on refunds.”

Aerosmith’s Las Vegas residency dates were slated to kick off on June 17 at Park MGM's Dolby Live. In March, it was announced drummer Joey Kramer would be sitting out of the residency. Per USA Today, Kramer “…regrettably made the decision to sit out the band’s concerts in 2022 so he can focus his full attention on his family during these uncertain times.” Filling in for Kramer will be John Douglas, with the band further noting Kramer not taking part in the residency is only a “temporary leave of absence.”
