Aerosmith shared the news today with an explanation on social media which reads, "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. We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must cancel our first set of Las Vegas Residency dates this June and July while he focuses on his well-being."

The band maintains they will continue with their scheduled 2022 tour dates starting in September, "and we’ll let you know any further updates as soon as we can. We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows." Check out a list of tour dates and grab your tickets HERE.

The group ended the post by thanking fans for their understanding and for their "support for Steven during this time." Ticketmaster ticketholders will receive an email with details about refunds for the Vegas residency. All others must contact separate points of purchase for information.
