Aerosmith fans have been worried about frontman Steven Tyler’s health after a string of dates were cancelled in the wake of his illness. Especially with the recent passing of Tom Petty, rumors began circulating that Tyler had suffered a heart attack or had a seizure.
Luckily, it was neither and Steven Tyler took to social media to dispel any of the rumors:
“It breaks my heart to have left this tour early..The band has never played better. Just watch the 1,000 people at Rock in Rio … I give you all an A+ for creative speculations but I certainly did not have a heart attack or a seizure (unless Joe Perry is taking a rippin’ lead) … Sorry to have cut the tour short but I had to have a procedure that only my doc in the States could perform … We’ve been to Tel Aviv … to Russia … to Rio … and all the in between … I guess it’s true what they say … that live’s a pisser when eu’re a peein'”
Tyler returned to the stage at the David Foster Foundation‘s 30th annual concert which is a group that provides money for non-medical expenses to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. The benefit concert took place at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia and reports are saying they have raised over $10 million!
