Rock band Aerosmith has been forced to cancel part of their Las Vegas residency due
to lead singer Steven Tyler admitting himself into rehab. Tyler has been sober since
2009, but a recent foot surgery caused him to relapse right before shows begin in June.
Tyler was prescribed pain meds to help with the discomfort following his surgery, which
led to his downfall. Bandmates share that Tyler willingly went to rehab to help his health
Aerosmith plans to return to performing in September, and has since announced they
will be giving refunds to those whose tickets are no longer valid. The band shows great
remorse for having to suspend the shows, but also great pride in their bandmates
dedication to his sobriety and well-being. The 74 year old singer has been in and out of
rehab centers since the 1980s, and knows the importance of them and staying sober to
avoid who he was under the influence.
