Aerosmith only got a few dates into their “Peace Out” farewell tour last year before frontman Steven Tyler suffered a vocal cord injury and the band was forced to postpone all their plans for the road. “To our fans: Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought,” the band wrote at the time. “His doctor has confirmed that in addition to the damage to his vocal cords, he fractured his larynx which requires 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. As a result, all the currently scheduled ‘Peace Out’ shows must be postponed to sometime in 2024, with new dates to be announced as soon as we know more.”

Tyler said: “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. I promise we will be back as soon as we can!”

The 75-year-old singer provided an update on his health while hosting his “Jam for Janie” Grammys viewing party on Sunday. “My throat’s been better, but it is on the mend,” he told attendees. 

His daughter, Mia, provided more details to People magazine saying he’s “much better” and adding: “He’s not supposed to be talking sometimes, so I have to literally yell at him and be, like, ‘You can’t be on the phone with me right now. Let’s just text.’ You can’t shut him up — he can’t close that mouth,” she joked.
