The Week in TicketCity Search – August 14 – Plus Aerosmith Tour Cancellation

A bit of breaking new before the countdown: the AP reports that Aerosmith is canceling its tour. The cause for the cancellation are the injuries received by frontman Steven Tyler in a fall from the stage during a performance in South Dakota on August 5th. His shoulder was broken in the fall.

On with the countdown, which showed quite a bit of moment this week, though mostly with a shuffle of familiar faces. The Jonas Brothers were again on top, followed by Taylor Swift, and once again Blink-182 zooms in from nowhere. The bottom five is completely different, with Wicked popping back in as the fall Broadway season gets underway.

Football season reminds us it is imminent once more, as the Texas Longhorns make an appearance on the countdown. After the Cowboys a couple weeks ago, followed by an odd interlude with soccer, we should be seeing some football on the countdown for at least the next few months.

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.
