Monday, Tyler said on Instagramthat he was "heartbroken" to say that the band had to cancel future shows because of the injury.
I'm heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor's orders not to sing for the next thirty days. I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday's show that led to subsequent bleeding. We'll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve.- Steven Tyler
The band also had to change dates for shows in Detroit, Washington, Toronto, Raleigh, and Cleveland. The show in Chicago, which was supposed to happen on Friday, will now take place at the United Center on February 14, 2024.

Aerosmith is an iconic American rock band that has left an indelible mark on the music industry since its formation in 1970. The band's original lineup consisted of Steven Tyler (vocals), Joe Perry (lead guitar), Brad Whitford (rhythm guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass), and Joey Kramer (drums). Over the years, Aerosmith has become known for its distinctive blend of bluesy rock, catchy melodies, and Steven Tyler's distinctive raspy vocals.
One of the defining characteristics of Aerosmith is their ability to produce hit songs across several decades. They first achieved significant commercial success in the 1970s with albums like "Toys in the Attic" and "Rocks." These albums featured classic rock staples such as "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion," which helped establish the band's reputation as rock icons.
In the 1980s, Aerosmith faced personal and professional challenges due to substance abuse issues but managed to make a remarkable comeback. Their collaboration with Run-D.M.C. on a remake of "Walk This Way" in 1986 revitalized their career and introduced them to a new generation of fans. The late 1980s and early 1990s saw the band release successful albums like "Permanent Vacation" and "Pump," which spawned hits like "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" and "Janie's Got a Gun."
The band has been a mainstay in the business for 50 years. Their "Peace Out" farewell tour kicked off in Philadelphia at the beginning of September, with 40 shows planned. Aerosmith has been worried about Tyler's health in the past. The band didn't play the last two shows of their Las Vegas engagement in December 2022. Due to Tyler's relapse, the band said in May that its Las Vegas residency dates in June and July would not happen.
As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery.- Aerosmith
Tyler has health problems and is also being sued for sexual abuse. In April, Tyler filed a response to the case that was filed against him on March 28. In it, he denied the claims that were made against him. Julia Misley filed the case against him. She said that the singer-songwriter sexually assaulted her, hurt her sexually, and made her feel bad on purpose.
Aerosmith's longevity and continued relevance in the music industry are a testament to their enduring appeal. Their music has transcended generations, and they have remained a major force in rock music. Beyond their musical contributions, the band's flamboyant style and larger-than-life personalities, particularly that of Steven Tyler, have contributed to their status as rock legends.
In addition to their numerous awards and accolades, Aerosmith has a dedicated global fanbase, and their live performances continue to draw enthusiastic crowds worldwide, making them one of the most enduring and influential rock bands of all time.
