According to the post, the singer, 74, has voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to focus on his health and hopeful recovery after abusing pain medications.

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years,” Aerosmith wrote in their post. “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.”

“We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must cancel our first set of Las Vegas Residency dates this June and July while he focuses on his well-being,” the band continued.

They thanked everyone for supporting Steven and informed followers of their return to the stage in September.

“We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we’ll let you know any further updates as soon as we can. We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows,” they wrote.
