Aerosmith's lead singer and Yonkers native Steven Tyler announced on Instagram and Twitter Tuesday that upcoming dates on the band's "Peace Out" tour have to be rescheduled due to vocal cord damage sustained at the UBS Arena show on Saturday night.
“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," Tyler wrote in his post.
Tyler said that all tickets that were previously purchases will be honored for the rescheduled dates or can be refunded.
