Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has volunteered at a rehab facility after a recent “relapse”.
The classic rock band was set to open a Las Vegas residency at Park MGM in June.
In an Instagram post Tuesday (May 24), the band explained the events leading up to Tyler’s decision to seek treatment.
“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” they wrote. “Following foot surgery in preparation for the phase and requiring pain management during the process, he recently relapsed and voluntarily enrolled in a treatment program to focus on his health and recovery.”
Tyler has publicly discussed his struggles with addictions, even in a 2019 year GQ Interview about life as a rock musician in the 1970s. “It was more or less popular back then. I don’t think there were any bands that even knew what sober was,” he admitted.
According to Park MGM’s website, ticket holders to the band’s “Deuces Are Wild” shows in Vegas will automatically receive a refund.
The band also apologized to fans who would be affected by the cancellations, “especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.”
