Steven Tyler is sick; Aerosmith cancels second Vegas show

Aerosmith has canceled a second consecutive concert due to lead singer Steven Tyler’s current illness, the band announced on social media on Sunday.

Monday’s Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild show at Park MGM in Las Vegas has been canceled, as has Friday’s show, which is part of the same residency. No shows were planned for Saturday and Sunday.

“Steven Tyler said, ‘On the advice of my doctor, I’m taking more time to rest… There’s no place we’d rather be than on stage surrounded by the best fans in the world,'” the band continued Instagram. “We sincerely apologize.”

Tyler representatives did not immediately respond to a request for more information about the rocker’s illness Monday.

Friday’s show was canceled with much less notice than Monday’s.

“It is with great disappointment that we are forced to cancel tonight’s show in Las Vegas due to Steven being unwell and unable to perform,” the band said tweeted an hour and 15 minutes before the show was due to start. At the time, the band expected Tyler to “fully recover” in time for Monday’s show.

The next shows are on Thursday and Sunday evenings.

This residency is a revival of the one that ran in Vegas from April 2019 to February 2020. The first two months of the band’s current residency shows in June and July were canceled after Tyler entered rehab in May after a decade of sobriety.

“Following foot surgery in preparation for stage and requiring pain management during the process, he recently relapsed and volunteered at a treatment facility to focus on his health and recovery,” the band said at the time.

Tyler completed rehab and the band performed at Park MGM’s 5,200-seat Dolby Live Theater in September, October and November.

Those with tickets to Monday’s show can get refunds through Ticketmaster or other outlets. Steven Tyler is sick; Aerosmith cancels second Vegas show
