The durable rock band Aerosmith is dealing with health problems again, canceling part of what was to be its farewell tour while frontman Steven Tyler addresses what the group calls “unexpected medical issues.”
The band announced today that it would be canceling the remainder of the South American leg of its “Aero-Vederci” tour.
In a statement on Tyler’s Twitter page, the band said: “Steven is expected to make a full recovery. With proper rest and treatment he will be back on his feet soon rocking the world.”
Tyler’s exact medical issues were not revealed.
In the same statement, Tyler said: “Please not to worry. I am not in a life threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away, and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances.”
The canceled dates run from Sept. 27 to Oct. 7.
This is the second recent health crisis for Aerosmith band members.
“Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was hospitalized in July 2016 after collapsing on stage while performing with his band the Hollywood Vampires,” CNN notes. “He made a full recovery and returned to performing days later.”
