Steven Tyler Checks into Treatment Program, Aerosmith Postpone Vegas Residency
Published May 24, 2022Aerosmith have pushed back their Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas residency at Park MGM's Dolby Live — originally slated to begin June 17 — as frontman Steven Tyler has voluntarily checked into a treatment program following a recent relapse.
The band announced the postponement via their social channels today, sharing that the singer had recently undergone surgery, for which he needed to use a pain management course that led to him breaking his sobriety.
The band wrote:
As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery.
We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must cancel our first set of Las Vegas Residency dates this June and July while he focuses on his well-being.
We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we'll let you know any further updates as soon as we can. We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.
