After a scorching start to their farewell tour, Aerosmith have been forced to postpone several shows on their Peace Out run. The band announced Monday that frontman Steven Tyler is suffering from vocal cord issues and has been advised not to perform for thirty days. As a result, the band has pushed several tour dates to 2024. In total, six shows have been postponed. The band is supposed to resume the run on October 11 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

Check out the full updated tour itinerary below.

“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days,” Steve Tyler said in a statement. “I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show [at UBS Arena] 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.”

All previously purchased tickets will be honored at the rescheduled shows. Refund will be available at point of purchase for fans who are unable to attend the new dates. Fans are encouraged to reach out to Live Nation/Ticketmaster, or the third party entities (e.g. StubHub, Vivid Seats, etc.) with any questions regarding refunds.

The band’s Peace Out Tour is their final 40-date trek across North America, bringing their storied career to a close. The tour kicked off on September 2 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. It was slated to wrap up on January 26, 2024 at Centre Bell in Montreal, before the band was forced to reschedule several shows to the end of the run. The Black Crowes are serving as special guests for the entire tour.

While the band has been touring for over five decades, there’s still plenty of tracks that haven’t seen the lights of a stage yet. Their current farewell tour will be their last chance to play any of these songs for the first time. The full list of every song that the band has never performed in concert can be found HERE.

“We’re going to open up Pandora’s box one last time to present our fans with the Peace Out Tour,” Tyler said when the trek was announced, referencing the band’s 1991 compilation box set. “Be there or be aware as we bring all the toys out of the attic. Get ready!”

Drummer Joey Kramer has decided not to take part in the band’s upcoming final tour. While he is still considered part of the group, Kramer took a leave of absence from the band’s Vegas residency last year to “focus his his attention on his family and health” and will continue to sit out the band’s final run.” Drummer John Douglas will continue to fill in for Kramer during the upcoming Peace Out Tour.

Aerosmith stated, “While Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith, he has regrettably made the decision to sit out the currently scheduled touring dates to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey’s unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers recently wrapped up their landmark Deuces Are Wild Residency in Las Vegas last summer, and played a special 50th anniversary show at Fenway Park last September. Now, it looks like fans around the globe may finally be getting to witness the celebrations for themselves.

Last month, Aerosmith released a new “best-of” compilation. The career-spanning collection Greatest Hits is available on CD, 3-CD deluxe, lenticular CD, vinyl, double vinyl, limited edition double vinyl, 4-LP deluxe vinyl box set, and 4-LP super deluxe box set. The super deluxe box set includes 44 of the band’s biggest songs on 180g custom colored vinyl, career-spanning live photos, and four black-and-white lithographs.

The Super Deluxe Limited Edition boasts — for the first time ever — 44 tracks spanning Aerosmith’s five-decade career on 180g custom color vinyl. Featuring “Dream On,” “Walk This Way,” “Sweet Emotion,” “Crazy,” “Cryin’,” “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” and many more. Stunning live photography and band photos across their entire career in premium book-style sleeves, plus four black and white lithographs.

Aerosmith are the best-selling American rock band of all time. Selling over 150 million records worldwide, they have 12 multi-platinum certified albums under their belt. Throughout their career, have garnered four GRAMMY® Awards, six American Music Awards, and ten MTV Video Music Awards. In 1999, Walt Disney World launched the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, the band’s very own theme park attraction. In 2001, they performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Aerosmith’s last full-length studio album was 2012’s Music from Another Dimension!
