Aerosmith Cancels Las Vegas Show, Cites Illness Of Lead Singer Steven Tyler

Aerosmith was forced to cancel its planned Friday night show at the Dolby Live theater in Las Vegas because of an undisclosed illness by 74-year-old singer Steven Tyler.

The concert was canceled two hours before the show was scheduled.

Tyler, who has an extensive history of drug and alcohol abuse, checked into another rehab stint in May, forcing the postponement of the planned residency until the fall.

“It is with great disappointment that we are forced to cancel tonight’s show in Las Vegas due to Steven feeling unwell and unable to perform,” the group wrote on social media. “He is expected to make a full recovery for Monday night’s Las Vegas show. We sincerely apologize for the last minute notice.”
