Aerosmith fans were already concerned about Steven Tyler's vocal cord injury, but recent updates from his medical team have escalated those worries.
The rock band has now postponed all their concerts until 2024 due to the severity of Tyler's condition.
Earlier this month, during a New York show, Tyler, 75, suffered damage to his vocal cords but continued to perform for the remainder of the concert.
It was only after the show that Aerosmith announced the postponement of several concerts, making fans aware of the gravity of Tyler's injury.
Tyler was initially advised by doctors not to sing for the next 30 days due to "mangled" vocal cords, as revealed by an x-ray. However, a recent statement from the band has shed more light on the situation.
"His doctor has confirmed that in addition to the damage to his vocal cords, he fractured his larynx which requires ongoing care," the band stated.
Given the nature of a fractured larynx, Tyler's recovery will require more than just rest; it will require patience.
"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," the band added.
Tyler himself expressed his disappointment, stating he was "heartbroken" not to be able to perform but promised that Aerosmith would return as soon as possible. The band's PEACE OUT tour is set to be their final tour.
