Rock band Aerosmith canceled the first two months of films planned for their stay in Las Vegas after lead singer Steven Tyler returned to his silent suffering and was healed, the band announced on Tuesday. The group, known for hits such as “Dream On” and “Walk This Way,” plans to perform in early September on stage at the Park MGM Hotel, according to a statement posted on Twitter. Tyler, 74, speaks openly about previous substance abuse struggles, which have caused tensions between his teammates. In 2009, Tyler told People magazine that he was being treated for pain treatment and prescription pain medication due to 10 years of injuries.
Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time.— Aerosmith (@Aerosmith) May 24, 2022

The star, who has been unexplained for more than ten years, is again taking painkillers for leg surgery. The 74-year-old was voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery told by his bandmates in a statement. Aerosmith will screen its film Deuces Are Wild on June 17.
Tyler is said to have been operated on “to set the stage,” but “the need to manage pain during the process” brought him back. All dates for June and July have been canceled. The band said they intended to continue their residency at MGM Park in September.
In case of cancellation, the amount will be returned to the cardholders. Steven, 74, has long been open about his problems. Shortly after the announcement on social networks, fans announced their support for Steven.
