STEVEN TYLER RELAPSES, AEROSMITH CANCELS VEGAS RESIDENCY: ‘THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING’

In May, the band announced its Las Vegas residency dates in June and July were canceled due to Tyler’s relapse.

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” the group wrote. “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.”

Tyler, 74, left a rehabilitation center in July.

A representative for Tyler shared with Fox News Digital at the time that he was “doing extremely well and looking forward to being back on stage.”
