Steven Tyler's Vocal Injury Worse Than Previously Thought
A Delay in the Aerosmith “Peace Out” Tour
Aerosmith, the legendary rock band known for their electrifying performances and iconic hits, has announced a significant delay in their farewell tour. The “Peace Out” tour, which was set to mark the end of an era for the band, is now rescheduled for “sometime in 2024.” This decision comes as a result of lead singer Steven Tyler’s ongoing battle with a vocal injury that has proven to be “more serious than initially thought.”
Originally, Aerosmith had plans to bid farewell to their fans with a New Year’s Eve performance at TD Garden in Boston. However, earlier this month, the band was compelled to postpone a few shows when Steven Tyler, at the age of 75, sustained a vocal cord injury during a live performance.
In a statement released by the band, it was revealed that Steven Tyler’s condition was more complex than anticipated. Alongside vocal cord damage, he had also fractured his larynx, requiring ongoing medical attention. The healing process for a fracture is typically lengthy, and patience is paramount in ensuring a full recovery.
Rescheduling and Refunds
Aerosmith reassured their loyal fans that new tour dates would be announced soon. For those who have already purchased tickets, these will be honored for the rescheduled concerts. However, the band also recognized that some fans might not be able to attend the rescheduled shows and assured that refunds would be made available to them.
Steven Tyler, in response to the postponement, expressed his heartfelt disappointment, saying, “I am 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 “Peace Out” Tour
Aerosmith embarked on their “Peace Out” farewell tour on September 2 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The tour had garnered immense anticipation as it marked the end of an era for the band, which has enjoyed a storied career spanning five decades.
The opening night of the tour featured an 18-song setlist, starting with the iconic “Back In The Saddle” and including a memorable cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Stop Messin’ Around.” The concert culminated with a two-song encore featuring “Dream On” and “Walk This Way,” leaving fans awestruck by the band’s enduring talent.
Produced by Live Nation, the “Peace Out” tour comprised 40 North American dates, with stops at renowned arenas such as Los Angeles’s Kia Forum, New York’s Madison Square Garden, and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena. The tour was set to make a special homecoming stop in Boston for a New Year’s Eve extravaganza, promising an unforgettable farewell to 2023.
Joining Aerosmith for the entirety of the tour were special guests, The Black Crowes, making it a celebration of Aerosmith’s five-decade-long musical journey.
A Vegas Residency and a Fenway Park Record
Before kicking off the “Peace Out” tour, Aerosmith concluded a highly acclaimed Las Vegas residency at Dolby Live at Park MGM. The residency was a testament to the band’s enduring popularity, drawing fans from far and wide to witness their live performances.
Prior to the residency, Aerosmith made history with a one-of-a-kind show at Fenway Park in Boston as part of their 50th-anniversary celebrations. With an astonishing audience of over 38,700 attendees, it marked the highest ticket sales for a single event at the iconic venue.
Steven Tyler’s Journey to Recovery
Steven Tyler’s battle with addiction has been a well-documented part of his life. In May 2022, Aerosmith announced that Tyler had entered a treatment program following a relapse, leading to the temporary hold of their Las Vegas residency. His struggles with drug and alcohol addiction spanned several decades, with multiple relapses occurring throughout his career.
While the postponement of the “Peace Out” tour is undoubtedly disappointing for fans, Aerosmith and Steven Tyler prioritize his health and recovery above all else. The band remains committed to delivering an unforgettable farewell tour when the time is right, ensuring that fans get the opportunity to celebrate their remarkable music and legacy.
