Aerosmith's farewell tour, "Peace Out," has been forced to postpone the rest of its shows scheduled for 2023. Two weeks ago, the popular band announced that due to Steven Tyler's injury, they would postpone their shows scheduled for October. However, after 15 days of rest, the 75-year-old singer received the worst news he could have imagined: his medical problems have worsened. Aerosmith made the following announcement in a press release:
To our fans: Unfortunately, Steven’s vocal injury is more serious than initially thought. 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.

Aerosmith announces its tour will resume in 2024
The singer, whose health problems forced the band to postpone its shows, took advantage of the statement released by Aerosmith to speak out about what happened and reassure fans that the band will return as soon as he is better, which, they hope, will be in 2024:
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 band announced that all postponed dates will be rescheduled. In addition, it confirmed that in the event fans cannot attend the concert on the new date, they will be able to request a refund. Of course, the band reported, people will need to go back to their point of purchase for issues like this.
