Aerosmith, the iconic American rock band, has been forced to pause their North American farewell tour due to a vocal cord injury sustained by lead singer Steven Tyler, 75.

The band announced the news on Instagram, where Tyler stated:

"It breaks my heart to inform you that I have been strictly advised by my doctor not to sing for the next 30 days." Tyler suffered the vocal cord injury during a performance on Saturday, which led to bleeding.

The band, founded in 1970, had planned to bid farewell to their fans with around 40 concerts across North America. The tour had kicked off on September 2 in Philadelphia.

The next six scheduled performances, set to take place in cities like Detroit, Chicago, and Toronto, have now been postponed to January and February 2024.

Aerosmith gained worldwide fame primarily in the 1980s and 1990s with hits like "I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing," "Crazy," "Livin’ On The Edge," "Amazing," and "Janie’s Got A Gun."

The news has undoubtedly disappointed both the band and their fans. Tyler's statement emphasized the band's commitment to delivering the performance their fans deserve, highlighting the emotional toll this unexpected pause has taken.
