Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler completed a stay in rehab after a recent setback caused a relapse.
As reported by Monsters and Critics, Steven Tyler checked into rehab in May, right before his band’s scheduled residency. Because of the relapse, Aerosmith canceled multiple shows in June and July. The performances scheduled in Vegas were canceled so Steven could get better physically and mentally after allegedly abusing pain medication.
Luckily for Steven, he is now healthy and sober and wants to return to the stage with the rock group that made him a household name.

Steven’s relapse was disappointing to fans who planned to see him in concert with Aerosmith.
In May, Aerosmith shared on social media that dates on the residency would be canceled. They wrote, “As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. 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.”
The group continued, “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.”
The group finished the post with gratitude, “Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time.”
Aerosmith’s Deuces Are Wild residency was due to begin at Park MGM Hotel’s Dolby Live on June 17 and finish on December 11.
