According to a statement shared by Tyler, he suffered “subsequent bleeding” after sustaining an injury to his vocal chords during last Saturday’s show. After seeing a doctor, the 75-year-old has been placed on strict vocal rest for 30 days.

“I’m heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor’s orders not to sing for the next thirty days,” Tyler shared with fans in a statement via social media. “I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday’s show that led to subsequent bleeding.
