Aerosmith has announced cancelled dates following lead singer Steven Tyler entering a rehab facility, CNN reports.
The rock band was set to play a residency in Las Vegas when Tyler,74, relapsed following a foot surgery.
“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” the statement read. “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.”
Tyler has been very public about his recovery. In fact, he opened up a rehab home called Janie’s House. His goal with Janie’s House is to help women who are dealing with substance abuse.
“While I was in (rehab), I found out most of women in there were battered and beaten and abused verbally and sexually in huge numbers,” he said at the time. “It was like seven out of 10, eight out of 10.”
