Another Possible Delay For the Aerosmith Tour
No details have emerged yet as to whether any dates in the current Aerosmith tour will be canceled or rescheduled stemming from Steven Tyler’s fall from the stage at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally August 5th. Apparently, in an effort to entertain the crowd while a failed sound system was repaired, Tyler performed some onstage antics leading to a backwards fall into the crowd. He was taken via helicopter to Rapid City Regional Hospital suffering head, neck, and shoulder injuries.
This would not be the first bump in the road on the current Aerosmith tour. The Venezuelan debut was canceled due to emergency surgery on Tyler stemming from an infection, and seven shows were canceled in July due to another Tyler injury. Other members of the band have missed dates due to injury, but shows have not been canceled in those cases.
Aerosmith is scheduled to perform dates in Canada from the 7th to the 15th, and there’s no word on the status of these dates.
