Due to lead singer Steven Tyler’s ongoing sickness, Aerosmith has postponed a second straight concert, the band announced on social media on Sunday.
Both the Monday performance of “Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild” and the Friday performance of the same residency at the Park MGM in Las Vegas has been canceled. There were no scheduled performances on Saturday or Sunday.
‘On the recommendation of my doctor, I’m taking more time to relax,’ Steven Tyler declared. The band stated on Instagram, “There is no place we’d rather be than on stage with the best fans in the world. “We apologize deeply.”
Inquiries about the rocker’s sickness were not immediately answered by Tyler’s representatives on Monday. Compared to Monday, Friday’s event was postponed with far less warning.
An hour and fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled performance, the band tweeted, “It is with great sorrow that we are obliged to cancel tonight’s gig in Las Vegas owing to Steven feeling unwell and unable to perform.” At the time, Tyler was supposed to “make a full recovery” in time for the Monday gig, according to the band.

The upcoming performances are scheduled for Thursday and Sunday nights.
The residency that took place in Vegas from April 2019 to February 2020 is being revived. The band’s first two residencies, scheduled for June and July, were postponed after Tyler, who had been sober for ten years, entered treatment in May.
He recently relapsed and willingly checked himself into a treatment facility to focus on his health and recovery, the band stated at the time. “After foot, surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the procedure,” they added.
In September, October, and November, the band played at Park MGM’s 5,200-seat Dolby Live theatre after Tyler finished his rehabilitation.
Refunds are available through Ticketmaster or other points of sale for those who have tickets to the performance on Monday.
