Aerosmith is postponing their entire 2023 Peace Out: The Farewell Tour until next year after learning that lead singer Steven Tyler’s vocal injury is “more serious than initially thought.”

The band announced the news in a statement posted to their social media on Friday. “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,” Tyler said in a statement. “I promise we will be back as soon as we can!”

The tour delay comes amid Tyler’s ongoing vocal cord issues, which were previously believed to be related to typical damage. However, a health professional has since confirmed the singer also “fractured his larynx” and will require ongoing care.

“He is receiving the best medical treatment available to ensure his recovery is swift, but given the nature of a fracture, he is being told patience is essential,” the statement from the band reads.

The latest tour update follows the band’s previous announcement postponing their September tour dates. The dates will be pushed to a currently undetermined date in 2024 with new dates announced as the band knows more.

Previously purchased tour tickets will be honored the band confirmed, with refunds available for those unable to select and attend a future date once announced.

Aerosmith is among a series of music legends that have seen their tour dates postponed this year. Celine Dion and Madonna have also both postponed tour dates this year due to health conditions.
